15th May 2020 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) have received six restored MBTs from Lviv Armoured Plant (a subsidiary of Ukroboronprom).

The work on four T-64s and two T-72s was carried out under a contract between the company and the Ukrainian MoD.

Victor Androschuk, director of Lviv Armoured Plant, said: ‘It is a long and laborious process of mastering new types of equipment, but we set ourselves ambitious tasks – mastering the repair and modernisation of all types of armoured vehicles… which are in service in the AFU.’

As well as the T-64 and T-72, Lviv Armoured Plant modernises the T-55 MBT and a number of other special engineering vehicles such as the BMR-2 and IMR-2.
