In addition, each sample of Victory military equipment underwent scheduled maintenance, including restoration work and painting.

Traditionally, the mechanized convoy at the Victory Parade will be led by the serial Soviet medium tank of World War II and the post-war period T-34. A copy of the Victory Banner will be installed on the tower of the legendary tank, and the sides of the tank turrets will be decorated with white inscriptions that inspired the victory and were the names of combat vehicles.

Also in Khabarovsk on May 9, other legendary samples of military equipment from the times of the Great Patriotic War, two BM-13 “Katyusha” and an IS-3 tank, will pass through Lenin Square.

The mechanized column will be closed by 20 samples of retro vehicles.

BM-13 – appeared during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 with the unofficial name of the “Katyusha”, barrelless field rocket artillery systems. Such installations were actively used by the Workers ‘and Peasants’ Red Army during the Second World War.
