"Our main task is to provide the Ukrainian army with reliable and updated military hardware that satisfy the requirements of modern combat," Herman Smetanin said, the director of the Kharkiv Armored Plant State Enterprise. "Modernization of the command tank is extremely important, as it is necessary not only to significantly improve the existing tactical-technical characteristics, but also to create all the appropriate conditions for effective control over thed detachment in all weather conditions and at any time of day. The employees of the plant have successfully completed this task. This is especially important in the context of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine."
