The history of the SE "KMDB" is inextricably linked with the history of the KhPZ - the Malyshev Plant. Tanks and tractors, designed and manufactured by these enterprises, always formed the basis and pride of the domestic armored forces. From their walls came products that largely determined the development of world tank building.

The proposed material for the first time in chronological order shows the process of development of special equipment at these enterprises, summarizes the experience of 75 years of work in this field and is interesting in that, so far, as analysis of the latest military conflicts shows, there is no alternative to a tank as a combat medium.

Medium tank T-12

This was the first tank to be manufactured at the Kharkiv Locomotive Plant in 1929. The required documentation was developed by the tank design team headed by Ivan N. Aleksenko building on the technical project of the 1-12-32 tank developed by the design bureau of the Ordinance Arsenal Trust. A single specimen of the vehicle was manufactured and subjected to trials. The trials showed clearly that there were major drawbacks in the design of the power pack, transmission and running gear. The tank was never accepted for service.

Medium tank T-24

This was the first tank to be developed by the designers of the Kharkiv Locomotive Plant on their own building on the experience gained during the manufacture and trials of the T-12 tank. After having been subjected to trials, the tank was accepted for service and manufactured in small numbers. The T-24 was used by the training tank units of the Red Army. Total production of the T-24 was 25 vehicles.

The tank was developed building on the results of studying the design and testing of the purchased American M1931 prototype tanks, with taking into account the requirements of the Red Army and production capabilities of the Kharkiv Locomotive Plant. The BT-2 entered series production and was accepted for service with the Red Army. The BT-2s were used in action in military conflicts of the 1930s and during the initial period of the Second World War. Total production of the BT-2 amounted to 400 vehicles.

Light tank BT-7

The tank was developed building on the experience of use of the previous models of the BT-series tanks. Main emphasis was on improvement of the reliability, ease of manufacture as well as on enhancement of the COMBAT CHARACTERISTICS. The BT-7 was the most well-developed of the BT series tanks. The tank was used in local military conflicts of the 1930s and in the Second World War. Total production of the BT-7 was 4,965 vehicles. The work on improvement of the BT series tanks was carried out under the leadership of A.O. Firsov.

LIght tank BT-7M (A-8)

The tank was a version of the BT-7 tank fitted with a V-2 diesel engine. The vehicle design was re-developed to enable the V-2 diesel to be incorporated and operated. The purpose of installation of a diesel engine in the tank consisted in improving the fuel efficiency of the power pack, in increasing the vehicle's fuel distance as well as in reducing fire risk when operating the tank or when the tank is hit on the battlefield. The tank was put into series production and accepted for service with the Red Army, taking part in the Second World War. Total production of the BT-7M was 790 vehicles.

A-32 (T-32) Medium tank

The 'initiative tank' was developed at the design bureau as an alternative to the A-20 tank. The wheels were excluded from the design, this resulting in increase of reliability and combat characteristics. A prototype vehicle was built and subjected to trials along with the A-20 tank. The result of these trials was a recommendation that further development work should be done on the vehicle. The vehicle never went into production nor was accepted for service.

T-44 Medium tank

This was being developed in order to create a tank that would have better combat and technical characteristics than the T-34. The tank also had a new feature - transversal placement of the engine.

Some prototype vehicles were manufactured with various main armament versions (85mm, 100mm and 122mm guns). The vehicle fitted with a 85mm gun was adopted and put into production. In the 1960s the tanks were upgraded: some units and assemblies of the power pack, transmission and running gear were replaced by the units of the T-54 tank and AT-T prime mover. The upgraded tank was designated the T-44M.

T-64 Main battle tank

In the early 50's, tank designers began to search for new ideas, because the Soviet Army needed a brand-new tank.

As it often happened before, when the question arose about the need to introduce radical changes in the design of the tank, KMDB was the first to embark on this path, introducing non-traditional - one might even say revolutionary - approaches to tank design. New concepts in the design of armored vehicles found their embodiment in a T-64 tank, developed in Kharkov in the early 60-ies under the leadership of AA. Morozov and became the ancestor of a new generation of Soviet battle tanks. On T-64 for the first time in the world was installed automatic loading, which allowed to reduce the crew from four to three people (commander, gunner and driver-mechanic). Other radical improvements included: complex multi-layer combined protection, a system of protection from weapons of mass destruction, a new original layout of the engine-transmission department, and others.

Subsequently, the T-64 tank was considered to be the most important milestone in the history of the tank-building of the Soviet Union, since all tanks of the T-series that appeared later (including the T-72 and its modifications, T-80, T-80U, T-80UD, Ukrainian T -84, etc.), were developed on the basis of concepts originally introduced into the design of the T-64 tank, in connection with which all of the above tanks can be called "direct descendants" of the T-64, its "children" and "grandchildren."

Later on, 5 vehicles were built on the basis of the T-64B tank under the designation of the T-64BM. The vehicles were subjected to army trials.

The developments in the area of turret and fighting compartment of the Obiekt 476 were later introduced into the T-80U and T-80UD design, while the developments in the area of power pack - into T-80UD design.

T-80UD Main battle tank

Created under the leadership of NA. Chomina on the basis of the tank "Product 476" and the chassis of the T-80 tank. It was the last and most perfect serial tank of the Soviet design.

The fire control system allows fire from a gun and a twin machine gun both to the gunner and to the commander. Security of the tank is provided by combined armor, built-in dynamic protection. The multi-fuel two-stroke turbo piston diesel engine provides high fuel efficiency and a large power reserve. The engine systems allow the tank to be operated at an ambient temperature of up to +550 ° C and to overcome a ford without a depth of up to 1.8 m.

In general, the design of the tank was so successful that the Guard Guards Tank Division, stationed near Moscow, was manned by the T-80UD tanks.

In 1996, Pakistan signed a contract with Ukraine for the supply of 320 T-80UD tanks. Supplies of these tanks were carried out in 1997-1999.

T-80UD is on arms of Ukraine, Russia and Pakistan.

T-84 Main battle tank

This was developed under the leadership of Mykhailo D. Borysiuk on the basis of the T-80UD MBT and differed from the latter by the following: new all-welded turret, explosive reactive armour of new generation, thermal imaging sight, digitisation of the fire-control system, 1200 hp engine, auxiliary power unit, optronic countermeasures system, automatic muzzle reference system, navigation aids etc.

The export version of the T-84 also features an automated gear shifting rather than a mechanical gear selector, new driver's steering controls (the driver now steers the vehicle with a steering T-bar rather than tillers, thus reducing the load on the driver), an air conditioning system, projectile muzzle velocity sensor, and other enhancements.

The first T-84 prototype vehicle rolled out in 1994, and then several more prototype vehicles were produced. They were subjected to extensive company and army trials. After successful completion of an extensive trials programme in mid-1990, the T-84 entered service with the Ukrainian Army in 1999.

The T-84 was offered for export and took part in comparative evaluation trials in Greece in 1998, in Turkey in 2000 and in Malaysia in 2000 to meet these countries' requirement for a new main battle tank. In Turkey, a special version of the T-84 fitted with a NATO 120 mm smoothbore gun fed by a bustle-mounted automatic loader was demonstrated.
