The Volgograd Tractor Factory is a heavy equipment factory located in Volgograd. The factory produces tractors and military equipment. During World War II, the factory was known as the Stalingrad Tracktornyy Zavod (Stalingrad Tractor factory, STZ) and retooled to produce equipment for the Red Army, most notably the T-34 tank. It became world-famous during the Battle of Stalingrad for the fierce battles fought there. (Source: Wikipedia). Most of its suppliers were also set up in Stalingrad – armour plates were manufactured by the ‘Krasniy Oktyabr’ (Red October) Factory and hulls were manufactured by the nearby Stalingradsky Dockyard (Factory 264).
Post-war the factory produced the PT-76 and BMD air transportable vehicles.
