The 140th remount factory of the Belarussian Defence Ministry is celebrating its 60th anniversary. At the present time, the factory is working on the creation of a modern computer simulator complex. 'Today there is no comparison in world to the mobile simulators for training the T-72 tank and BMP-2 infantry fighting machine crews and preparing specialists at a minimum cost,' said the Belorussian Ministry of Defence.
The press service of the Belarussian Defence Ministry told Rosbalt that the factory, which was built for the remount of armoured technology, engines and tank hardware, opened on May 7, 1943. 'Over the last several years the factory has successfully been engaged in the modernization of different types of battle technology. One of the more successful and forward-looking projects of the factory is the fundamentally modernized machinery Cobra K and Cobra S which were created on the basis of the armoured troop carrier BTP-60 and BMP-1,' said the Belarussian Ministry of Defence.
