Kalinin plant known as "Zeke", this year marks 145 years already. Like many of the defense companies of the Urals, he was evacuated to us in time war, but traces its history to gun shops in St. Petersburg.
Because at the Museum of the plant in the middle of serialized products can meet and guns the Russian-Turkish war, and anti-aircraft gun of the Russian stateliness, and anti-aircraft missiles cool times of war. Noteworthy that in the museum store and pieces of the South American spy plane Powers was shot down May 1, 1960 near Sverdlovsk. Bureau of Plant a hand in the creation and brought down its complex S-75.

At the last not so long ago in Nizhny Tagil arms show Russian Expo Arms-2011 "Zeke" was showing its latest development — SAM complex "Buk-M2E" on a wheeled chassis. After the exhibition, the governor decided to look at the Mišarin plant, where do these complexes. And we joined it.

At the factory we walked through the assembly shop, which collects air defense system "Buk" crawler-type vehicle, also complex With-300B crawler. The latter, in contrast to conventional wheeled giants of the family C-300P, usually bringing up the rear vehicles in parades on May 9, not really designed for air defense, and for military units, hence the index in the title.
With all this security forbade shooting overall plans for workshops and some buildings in the area, so that the photo only equipment: large and in detail.

The Governor Misharin with curiously studied the technique and talked with the workers, among whom were many young people.
Shop machining amuses many modern machines.
There is a lot of blanks for the new air defense systems.
In addition to military production "Zeke" is known and civilian — loaders and harvesting technology-intensive purchased Administration of Yekaterinburg. But the fraction of civilian products in the production of the plant — only about 15%, and it is not very good. As the governor noted, this raises plant dependent on the 1st of the customer and does not contribute to its sustainable development in the modern economy.
Also the head of the town and showed plainclothes production plant.
