On the basis of the storage of armored vehicles of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Primorsky Territory, solemn events were held dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the professional holiday of tankers and tank builders – the Day of the Tankman.

On the parade ground of the unit, a solemn meeting was held, at which the command of the unit, representatives of veteran organizations and the municipality addressed the servicemen. They wished the tank crews success in military work and defense of the Fatherland. A number of distinguished servicemen were awarded medals and certificates of honor.

In addition to solemn events, an open day was organized on the territory of the unit for residents and guests of the city of Arseniev. Everyone could get acquainted with modern and rare armored vehicles of the Great Patriotic War. The greatest interest among the visitors was aroused by the T-34-85 tanks restored by the collective and the American Sherman tank supplied to Soviet soldiers under Lend-Lease during the war.

In addition to the Museum of Military Glory, the creative military collective of the unit performed songs of the war years for the guests of the holiday. During the events, special attention was paid to compliance with sanitary requirements to prevent the spread of a new coronavirus infection.

On the eve of the holiday, the opening of the erected church-chapel in the name of the holy warrior Dmitry of Thessalon took place. The temple was erected on the initiative of the servicemen of the military unit with the support of the Arsenyev diocese. The construction of the temple-chapel has been carried out since 2016.
