Inside a Russian Military Factory

I posted this on YouTube recently: a “tour” of a Russian military factory, taken in 1994.

The operation produced pile driving equipment for railroad troops.

Having spent a good deal of time in machine shops, factories and foundries, what struck me was the scale of the operation and the vertical integration of the production. The plant was well organised and clean (not a given in Russia) and the automatic inventory system was not unique but certainly ahead of what my own company employed.
