The best way to hide something, know how to hide on plain sight. Then there is a chance that seekers of the hidden thing – Snoop through all the cubbyholes, and actually in sight lying in the desired object – can not be overlooked. I remembered about this method, when the photos looked with the Lvov tank plant published on http://www.bloomberg.com
There has been posted a dozen photos, with workshops on the modernization of T-72 tanks to NATO standards. Just, in Ukraine now any piece of hardware, whether legacy BTR-152, or even homemade “Jihad mobile” “Makhno”, assembled out of the truck “GAZ-66” somewhere on the margins, “Lenin’s smithy”, is considered relevant to NATO standards. Well at least NATO doesn’t know that, otherwise I would – upset and nervously lit a cigarette. After all, their equipment is clearly not up to “NATO” standards in Ukrainian interpretation.
Well, humor is humor, but I still wondered – what is the General meaning of this photo?
For beautiful photos, in my opinion, would be worth a visit at least at the Kharkov tank plant. There and cleaner and tanks are bigger. Photos would come out beautifully. Or goal was to photograph exactly the Lvov plant? Although, these plant mechanical repair shops.
In the end, we saw a few photos of the hull, the tower, standing on the box, a few caterpillars, and a back yard where all the scrap metal. Some “boxes” out there, however recently imported. The most important – mentioned by the Ukrainian media, tanks in Lviv will be upgraded to the level of Polish T-72, modifications of PT-91. The devil – is in the details, and the reference PT-91, to the level which “upgraded” tanks in Lviv – not the speculation of Ukrainian “journalists”. Writing on a similar theme – “at the request” of the parent bodies.
What is the meaning of refurbish Ukrainian scrap metal under the standards of the Polish tank, wasting a lot of money – I personally do not understand. Corruption factor is certainly there, where the same without him. But in my opinion, there is another important factor of this “fotomaterialy”. The covering supplies the real Polish RT-91 on the territory of former Ukraine, as their tanks, at least able to move independently, quickly running out.
Poland, in turn, the stocks of arms from the Soviet period and in the light of the forthcoming transition of the Polish army in the West, the arming, the supplying of the former Ukraine is a logical step.
Especially because the delivery was already done, the evidence is lined on Donbass Polish T-72. There is evidence the poles themselves the supply of equipment to Ukraine, from warehouses near Krakow. From the town of Wieliczka, to be exact.
Polish T-72 modification of PT-91
Data on the transfer of Polish tanks in Ukraine appeared a year ago, after began discussing the topic in the press and on blog platforms, theme is jammed. Now, in order to avoid useless discussion, the supplies of Polish PT-91 will be viewed as Lviv tanks, upgraded to the level of Polish.
The photo spread by Ukrainian mass media is a kind of information “legalization” of future deliveries. Operation “cover”, in other words.
