City-plant Izhevsk.

From the first days of the great Patriotic war steel Izhevsk

metallurgical plant was 150 defense enterprises, and until 1942

Izhevsk was the only supplier of rifles in the country.

After the arrival of evacuated to Izhevsk Tula arms Izhevsk Izhevsk

Izhevsk machine-building plant was divided into machine - building

and mechanical plant, which produced anti-tank gun Degtyarev (ptrd),

anti-tank gun Simonov, Tula Tokarev pistol (TT) - up to 18 types of weapons.

The factories worked day and night, in two shifts, building

battalions and working columns were formed, the machines were raised

and the villagers, the disabled returning from the war... Bast shoes

in winter, porridge in the Newspapers, wooden, hastily built

barracks, and every seventh worker - up to 16 years...

But every day only the machine-building plant armed one shooting

and one aviation division of the warring country.

Izhevsk is not the title of a hero City. But the factory city made

its unprecedented feat in the great war: for 1941-1945.
