According to Censor.NET citing Hromadske.TV, the plant is currently repairing and enhancing BMP-2 (APC), BMD-1 (IFV), BMD-2 and the BREM-2 (ARV), as well as manufactures AGS-17 grenade launchers and parts for machinery operating in the East of Ukraine .
The work at the plant is literally humming, because experts are working in three shifts, with students assisting in the repairs.
"It is a cool job," says expert electrician Mykhailo, who was hired recently when the staff was expanded.
The management calculated: it takes 2000 man-hours to repair one unit of military equipment. That is, a team of fifty people will do the job in 5 hours. Since the beginning of the ATO the armored plant hired additional 189 employees (total of 600 as of the moment). They often work one and a half shift in order to fulfill the state order until the end of the year.
State enterprise Zhytomyr Armor Plant is a part of the State Concern "Ukroboronprom" and fulfills the orders of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and foreign customers.
