Old dashboard indicators for BMP-1 and T-72. “Why would a sane person buy something like this?”, you might ask yourself.
And in normal circumstances, I would completely agree with you. But these are not normal circumstances, nor normal times.
We were wondering how to incentivize fans of military vehicles and our customers to donate money to the armed forces of Ukraine. And recently we came up with an idea, to offer you something in exchange. A small piece of a vehicle, exactly like the ones, which are serving, and fighting in Donbass, alongside the brave Ukrainian soldiers.
Each of the “clocks”, or indicators, which you can buy here was once a part of a BMP-1, or a T-72 of the Polish Army. Maybe some of these vehicles are fighting the Russians, as you read this text, because Poland donated about sixty BMPs and over 240 Main Battle Tanks to the Ukrainian Army.
The tachometers, oil pressure and temperature gauges have a distinctive green glow in the dark – don’t worry, it’s thanks to phosphorus, not radiation. But they certainly look cool in the dark, as can be seen on one of the photos. 🙂
You can choose from the following indicators:
- odometer for BMP-1, T-55 and T-72 tanks;
- tachometer for BMP-1 (one of two types);
- oil pressure indicator for BMP (to six or 15 BAR);
- oil temperature indicator for MT-LB, T-55 and T-72;
- hour meter for BMP, T-55 and T-72;
- volt-ammeter for BMP, MT-LB, T-55 and T-72;
Each of these types is in service right now in the armoured vehicles of the Ukrainian Army. Please add your contribution and help us to support the efforts of the brave Ukrainian soldiers to defend their country.
