The history of the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau is one of the most vivid pages in the tank manufacturing of the former Soviet Union, when creative competition of several design bureaux made it possible to preserve the leading positions in the world tank manufacturing.

Political events of the last decade have dramatically changed the conditions under which the enterprise has to work now. They not only added difficulties and production risk, but also opened new horizons.

In the late 1990s the tank production industry of Ukraine underwent a major strategic restructuring in order to place the Ukraine's tank designers and manufacturers in a leading position to compete successfully in the 21st century land systems market place. In particular, the enterprises involved in the development and production of armoured vehicles were united into a concern called 'Armoured Vehicles of Ukraine'. The KMDB itself changed dramatically as it transformed itself from being a tank company into one with a wider range of equipment and expertise covering various tracked and wheeled armoured vehicles.

Today the Kharkiv Morozov Design Bureau is given the task of co-ordinating the work on organising the production of the entire nomenclature of military tracked vehicles in Ukraine. The design and production experience accumulated over the past years make us confident in the successful fulfilment of this task.
