about a relative.) The man in question would have been a skilled

Union in 1939/1940 timeframe by the Soviets.>>

Linda,

Soviet tanks were manufactured in the several facilities:

Factories in Ural regions in towns: Sverdlovsk, town Nizhniy Tagil
(Sverdlovsk region) the large Soviet tanks fabricator, Omsk and
Chelabinsk.

Tanks have also been manufactured in the European part of USSR in
towns Mytishchi and Kirov (Moscov region), Charkov, Gorki, Leningrad
and Stalingrad.

Hope this helps.
