Kharkiv is a city in the Eastern Ukraine. Our enterprise is located in this city, which is
a large industrial and cultural centre. For those interested therein we have placed a
page with several images of our city in our site. Morozov is the surname of Aleksandr A. Morozov who
used to be the chief designer of our enterprise between the years 1940 and 1976.
The SE KMDB has been named after Morozov. More details are given under HISTORY in our site.
The SE KMDB's site is updated whenever there appear changes related to the information

In recent years the SE KMDB has kept participating in the exhibitions as a part of
the exposition of the UkrSpetsExport company. The exhibitions attended include: IDEAS
(Pakistan), Eurosatory (France), IDEX (United Arab Emirates).
Occasionally our enterprise also participates in other international defence
equipment exhibitions, including IDEF (Turkey), DSA (Malaysia).
Nowadays the Ukrainian Army is equipped mostly with 125 mm armed MBTs
(e.g., the up-to-date Oplot MBT developed by the SE KMDB). The 120 mm armed MBTs (Yatagan) were
being developed to meet the specific requirements of the countries that use NATO standards
for weapons and ammunition.
The SE KMDB is involved in the training of foreign personnel as well as providing training aids.
Training courses are provided covering all aspects of operation, maintenance and repair,
as they have been designed both for the user and for the technician. These courses are held
at Ukrainian Army training establishments in Ukraine, at the KMDB's own training
facilities - where advanced technical training in repair can be provided - or, if appropriate, in
the customer's own training schools and other in-country training facilities. Instruction can also
be carried out in the facilities of the KMDB' subcontractors. Training of technicians is
available to field and workshop levels of repair in mechanical and electrical parts, electronics,
armament and instruments. Courses available for users cover operation, recovery,
maintenance, and storeman skills. A full training equipment package has been developed for
each vehicle, ranging from simple classroom aids such as wall charts and viewfoils to full
size training simulators. The training equipment is designed to allow both operator
and technician training to be carried out in an efficient and cost effective manner
with minimum requirement to divert armoured vehicles from their operational role.

KMDB has a proving ground with cross-country and road test tracks for full automotive trials,
firing range, and premises with sophisticated test-benches for proofing various systems
and units of armoured vehicles, both tracked and wheeled. Modern, purpose-designed test-bench
rooms enable hot and dusty desert conditions to be artificially created to test the performance
of vehicle power pack and other systems at ambient temperatures of up to +55°C.
Computer analysis, modern laboratories, and advanced instrumentation are also available.
