On 6 September 2007, SOE Kharkov Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (SOE KMDB) celebrated its 80th jubilee.

Created on the basis of Kharkov steam-engine plant in 1927, the design group on tank development was gradually transformed into a separate high-capacity design-manufacturing enterprise creating armoured equipment.

Among the developments of SOE KMDB a special place is occupied by such vehicles as the best tank of the Second World war T-34, and a forefather of all the post Soviet main battle tanks T-64.

At present the SOE KMDB is actively extending the range of its products, among which is heavy armoured equipment (tanks Oplot, Yatagan, BREM), light armoured equipment (armoured personnel carrier 4x4 Dozor-B, armoured personnel carriers 8x8 BTR-3, BTR-4), modernisation packages of tanks and armoured personnel carriers of the former USSR (T-55, T-62, T-64, T-72, BTR-50/60/70/80 and others), weapon systems, training facilities (dynamic simulators, training programs, stands, etc.) as well as a number of products of civil purpose.
