The Izhorsk factory, founded by Peter the Great, was the greatest in the Russian heavy industry sector, producing, among other things, the T-34 and KV tanks. Among those defending the factory were the members of the Izhorsk factory volunteer units. Most of them were armed with rifles, carbines, hand grenades and pistols. Few had a day or two of training.
