The first container terminal (FCT) is the largest container terminal in the Russian Federation. Located in the Greater Port of St. Petersburg, is one of the first specialized container terminals in Russia.

It is connected by regular feeder communication with major European ports - Rotterdam, Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Antwerp. Regular weekly ship calls to the terminal are carried out by the world's leading shipping lines: MAERSK LINE, CMA CGM, OOCL, UNIFEEDER, TEAM LINES, FESCO ESF, COSCO, X-PRESS, SHORTSEA EXPRESS LINES.

The presence of advanced feeder traffic with ports of transshipment in Western Europe allows cargo owners to use the service of container lines that do not have direct ship calls to the terminal: HAMBURG SUD, APL, SAMSKIP, SWAN CONTAINER LINE, ONE, EVERGREEN, HMM, YANG MING, TEAM LINES, SEA CONNECT, HAPAG LLOYD.

According to its capabilities, the refrigerator platform of FCT is one of the largest in Europe.

PCT operates an IT system with satellite positioning of containers, as well as an electronic document management system.

What is PCT for and how does it work?

The effect of receiving prohormones can adversely affect some organs, and especially the testicles. Testosterone production is controlled by a hormone produced by the hypothalamus gonadotrophin. This hormone is responsible for cell division in the genitals, their production of androgenic hormones and spermatogenesis. Acceptance of hormones from the outside causes a reaction in the body, which leads to a reduction in the production of gonadotropic hormone. This process must be carefully monitored, since a lack of gonadotropic hormone causes atrophy of the testicles. When taking design steroids testosterone comes from the outside.

If you get enough (and even too much) testosterone, then the body reduces its production to a minimum. It is more than logical: why should he waste resources and energy if someone does the work for him?

Therefore, if you have a long course (more than 2 months), then we recommend that for the 2nd month of the course we add HCG (Chorionic gonadotropin) for 1000 IU - 3 Fridays in a row, one rest. We continue to put on this scheme until the PCT itself. The creator of the project, Sergei Soklakov, wrote about this in an article: “The philosophy of long courses, or why fitness models are fitness models, and you are not!”. Very comprehensive material that I recommend to read!

Next moment! When you wind down a course, stop supplying testosterone to your body, it may not immediately change to a new regimen, which means it will not immediately produce enough of your own testosterone immediately after completing the course.

In simple words, a long course, without background injections of hCG, and even without PCT, can lead to infertility and impotence! For the sake of fairness, I note that there are unique people who don’t make the PCT at all as such and everything is restored on its own within an adequate time frame (2-3 months), but I do not advise you to repeat this experience when you can make it more scientifically competent!

Let's move on to the next nuance. It would seem that a lot of testosterone is good, but this is not always the case. In our body, the principle of homeostasis (balance). The same principle works mercilessly when too much testosterone appears in the blood, part of which is brought into balance and is replaced by the opposite one - estrogen. Here antiestrogens come to the rescue. The principle of their work is simple - they inhibit aromatase enzymes, which transform testosterone into estrogen. If you do not fight with estrogen, then gynecomastia is waiting for you.

With the liver, and so everything is clear. She passes all the preparations through herself and for this she just needs to help anyone (at least once a year), and even more so to an athlete who is on the course! These drugs are called hepatoprotectors - they cleanse and restore the liver. It turns out that with the help of drugs for PCT you can:

  1. Restore normal hormones,
  2. Fight against kickback
  3. Prevent gynecomastia
  4. Stop testicular atrophy and oligospermia,
  5. Prevent other side effects.

During the course at least once every two months, it is important to pass tests. Ideally, an endocrinologist specializing in athletes should conduct you (this is mandatory)! If you don’t have one (and 90% of people don’t have one), then you can turn to Sergey. He will help you with a specialist for very reasonable money!

Classic PKT

Usually, after the course of prohormones, two types of PCT are used: classical and PCT in the style of “bridge”. The only difference is the presence of hormonal drugs. Consider everything in order.

The classic version is logical to use if you are not going to start the next course in the near future. The following drugs are used:

  • Testosters,
  • Hepatoprotectors
  • Antiestrogens.

These are only basic supplements that must be used after the course; they can also be supplemented with cortisol blockers that help reduce catabolism and preserve muscle volumes, peptides that can enhance the production of your own hormones (testosterone, GH, IGF-1, MFR-1, and t .d.)

But the use of SARM on the classic PCT is a controversial issue, since it was noticed that, despite the manufacturers' statements, they still oppress the production of their testosterone. That is, if you make a course from SARMs personally, we recommend doing a classic PKT after them!

How to make in practice the classic PCT?

Immediately make a reservation that here I am talking about the classical method after a course of prohormones for no more than 3 months. If the course is longer, then everything is not so obvious, and if you do not have the necessary experience, then you need a mentor.

We take 1 testobuster from the testosters section. By the way, you can have two, but just see that the compositions intersect at a minimum, or do not intersect at all. We take one protection for the liver and one antiestrogen from the support section on the course. If the tests have not recovered, then repeat this procedure for another month. If you do not want to be tested, then make PKT 2 months to be sure!

PCT in the style of "bridge"

Now let's consider the second option - FCT "bridge". This option is logical to use if you want to do several courses - one by one. You cannot use high dosages forever, for two reasons:

  1. Moral fatigue from constant hard training,
  2. Prolonged excessive stress on the body.

As you may have guessed, experienced athletes "bridge" when using long courses. In general, an experienced athlete and a long course are synonymous! The essence is simple, we leave only one prohormone instead of a bundle, or CARM, or a special testoster bridge. Accordingly, we reduce the intensity of training and, if possible, align the indicators of analysis.

It is not worth hoping that you will recover something with such a scheme. LH and FSH will be practically at zero and endogenous testosterone will be produced practically. BUT, this is the only option if you want to make a high-quality competitive form!

What drugs need to take:

  • Testobuster with a light prohormone or testoster + prohormone,
  • Hepatoprotectors
  • Antiestrogens
  • SARM.

It is logical to "pave" only when the rest between courses is shorter than the courses themselves. There is no need to disturb and rebuild the hormonal system ten times.

How to do in practice fct in bridge style?

As you can see, we are leaving the hepatoprotector and the anti-etrogen from the classic PCT. We change testoboster to testoboster with prohormone (located in the same section). You can also make a combination of testobuster + light prohormone (located in the section designer steroids), or SARM.

I repeat! The task is to keep the accumulated, with a minimum load on the body, as well as to rest morally and as close as possible to the reference values ​​of the analyzes.

The importance of supporting the course

If you have a trial short course (two months) with one light prohormone that does not weigh the liver (that is, one-component and not methylated), then it can be done without support. The liver will get its “vitamins” on PKT.

But if you have a long course with multicomponent DSi, and even in the methylated form, then support in the form of a hepaprotector, an anti-etrogen and hCG is obligatory.

Examples of specific products for FCT

Theory is a necessary basis for a qualitative result, but practice is just as important. Therefore, we decided to give you an example of choosing the right products for PCT and support on the course. We will present some products in our categories, and all you need is to choose one of each. A small gift for those who do not want a long search for the perfect option!

Variants and modifications [| ]

PC - Kalashnikov machine gun with bipod.

Options Bcb and PKS differ from the PC only factory configuration, which determines their purpose:

  • if the PC is installed on a tripod machine, it is called PKS (easel).
  • if the PC is installed on an armored personnel carrier (using a swivel bracket), it is called Bcb (armored personnel carrier). Swivel bracket officially referred to as "Installation". The machine gun was placed only on armored personnel carriers that did not have a turret (in armored personnel carriers with a turret, Fct).

Tripod machine to the PCB and setting to the PCB, they had a serial number and were assigned in the subdivision to a specific machine gun entry in the form. All three machine guns (more precisely - one in three names, depending on where it is installed) were put into service in 1961 instead of RP-46, SGM and SGMB, respectively.

The PKS tripod machine makes it easy to shoot machine guns from a bunker or trench, shooting at air targets and shooting in mountainous terrain.

The installation for a PCB consists of a swivel (providing horizontal pickup), a sector (providing vertical pickup), a holder (holding a cartridge box of increased capacity for 200/250 cartridges), a spring damper softening the recoil, a frame (connecting the machine gun to the installation) and a sleeve girder (avoiding cluttering the internal space of the armored personnel carrier). The design of the PCB included fixed bipods and a butt as on a regular PC, which allowed, if necessary, to use it outside the combat vehicle.

PKB was used on armored personnel carriers that had an open-top structure without a swiveling tower (BTR-40, BTR-152, BRDM-1, BTR-50) and also in the early BES-60 - BTR-60P and BTR-60PA. Since these types of armored personnel carriers were almost completely decommissioned by the USSR Armed Forces, this modification is rare.

PKM - Kalashnikov machine gun modernized. Adopted in 1969 to replace the PC. Differs less weight.

  • Variants that had factory configuration tripod machine or installation are called accordingly PCMS and PKMB.

For use in the PCMS version, a new 6T5 tripod machine, designed by Stepanov, was adopted at that time. While maintaining all the positive qualities of the previous machine, it is 3 kg lighter, and in addition it has:
- special belts for mounting in the stowed position of the boxes with ribbons, thus in the stowed position with the machine transferred up to 2 boxes with ribbons of 200 rounds of ammunition,
- mounting on the legs of the machine for the box with the tape in a combat position, so in battle one soldier can carry the machine gun along with the machine and the cartridge box without pulling the tape from the machine gun.
In addition, as well as in the machine Samozhenkova, in the new machine you can install a machine gun for anti-aircraft fire.

Fct - Kalashnikov machine gun tank, with a heavier barrel and equipped with electrosis. It is installed in the towers of tanks and other armored combat vehicles (BMP, BMD, BTR-60PB / 70/80/90, MT-LB, BMPT, BRDM-2, BRM-1K). Adopted in 1962 to replace the machine gun SGMT.

PKTM - Kalashnikov machine gun tank modernized. Adopted in 1998 [10].

AEK-999 "Badger" - PKM with a new machine gun barrel produced by the Kovrov Mechanical Plant. The largest change in the design of weapons compared to the single PKM machine gun is the new non-replaceable barrel, which uses aviation materials. It is completed with a removable low-noise firing device, which allows to significantly reduce the acoustic load on the members of the machine-gun crew and reduce visibility by reducing noise and eliminating the muzzle flame. There is evidence that the sound of the shot, depending on the type and terrain, is not audible even at a distance of 400-600 m. A heat diffuser is located above the barrel of the machine gun, which reduces the distorting effect of warm air on the aiming line and adds rigidity to the barrel design. Resource barrel 33-40 thousand shots [11] [12].

Pecheneg - PCM with forced cooling barrel due to the energy of powder gases. Developed by TsNIItochmash.

Type 80 - Chinese PKM. The machine gun entered service with the PLA in the 1980s [13] in 1983 [14]. At first, it was assumed that the Type 80 would replace the Type 67 previously developed in the PRC, which had a good reputation at the military district testing ground in Chengdu. However, then the development was curtailed, and only Type 67 remained in service [14]. Several samples of the Type 80 were tested in the Chinese Navy, then they were modernized, and the ground forces received a modification of the Type 86, which was put into service with the PLA.

Zastava M84 - Serbian PKM. Of the differences - the butt of solid wood. [15]

We need to minimize losses

  • The more doses of steroids you used on the course, the greater the loss in muscle mass and strength will be after the course (more rollback).
  • The longer the course of using anabolic steroids was, the more there will be a rollback after the course.
  • The less you use the dose of the drug you use during the course, the less you gain, and the losses are correspondingly less, just the same and in terms of admission.

Reduce muscle loss in PKT

  • You need to concentrate on how to return the natural balance of sex hormones. To have its own development, and women need to be reduced, because, after a course of steroids as a result of flavoring them will be more.
  • It is necessary to achieve recovery of libido, and spermatogenesis.
  • Tidy up the liver so that the bilirubin is normal, for this helps cortisol.
  • Cholesterol. Good nutrition, a lot of fatty fish, fish oil (omega-3) and monitor the condition of cholesterol.
  • Reduce cortisol levels. On the course, we are used to working with a very high intensity of training, and after a course of steroids, this intensity needs to be reduced to lower the level of cortisol.

Restoring hormone balance

There is also estrogen in the male body, and they are in a certain proportion with testosterone. Natural proportion from 1 to 200mg.
Everything in our system is regulated, if you have a lot of testosterone, it does not start your own. Before you raise your natural level of testosterone, you need to wait until the artificial end. To do this, take into account the timing of the collapse of certain drugs.

Suppose after testosterone enanthate and sustanon need to wait

If your system has a lot of estradiol and prolactin, then they greatly inhibit the production of your own testosterone.

Years of supply and operation

Adoption of the machine gun took place in 1961. The operation of the model occurs in the present. In this case, PKT, the Kalashnikov tank machine gun, is based on a common, basic design borrowed from a Kalashnikov assault rifle. However, like other specialized modifications.


It should be noted that the PKT tank machine gun, the characteristics of which (some) will be described in this article, was used in a large number of local conflicts. Причем не только танковая модификация, но и другие модели оружия. Он использовался военнослужащими во времена конфликтов конца XX века, а также начала XI века.

Отличительные стороны

In general, the PC (in particular, PKT - Kalashnikov tank machine gun) has excellent performance in terms of punching and killer action. The simplicity of the design (and we all know perfectly well that the design of the Kalashnikov weapon is just that) provides high reliability and, of course, reliability.

Weapon design

The basis for the creation of this device was the principle of the so-called “single machine gun”. What is the meaning of this? The fact is that the design of a “single machine gun” provides for the conversion of weapons into an infantry, anti-tank, easel, anti-aircraft version. In this case, the basic structure is not subject to change. This is the essence of the “single machine gun”, incorporated into the base, which was inherited by the Kalashnikov PKT machine gun.

Infantry (also called manual) option is used when installing bipod (PC). For use as a machine gun requires the installation of the appropriate machine (PKS). To use a weapon as a weapon on an armored personnel carrier (APC), it is mounted on special devices. The same thing happens in the case of using a machine gun in a tank turret (PKT).

By the way, it is interesting that not only the easel, but also the infantry version can be used to neutralize the threat from the air.

Replacement of tank machine guns

Until 1962, a Goryunov machine gun was used in tanks. In that year, the gun was replaced by a more technologically advanced and sophisticated PCT in its tactical and technical characteristics. Accordingly, when replacing the design engineers made some changes that affected including sights. They were removed because a riflescope was used for aiming the gun at the PKT target.

Also changed were overall indicators. The length of the barrel, as well as the weight of the machine gun, was increased. Butt as superfluous was removed from the design. In order to control the fire remotely, gunsmiths added electric trigger.

In most cases, the Kalashnikov tank machine gun is mated with an anti-tank gun.

PCB is installed on armored personnel carriers by mounting on a special support. She, in turn, is connected with armored vehicles with brackets. Thus, the barrel will be deployed in the direction in which it will be necessary to shoot.

Metal ribbons are used to power the weapon. The tape itself is placed in a special box on the side of the machine gun. Ammunition capacity may be different. This is a variation on 100 rounds, as well as on 200 and 250.


Like almost any weapon, the Kalashnikov machine gun went through a modernization process. This happened 8 years after the official adoption in service in the ranks of the Soviet army. That is, in 1969.

What was modernized? The weight of the weapon was immediately reduced to 1.5 kilograms. Since that time, the upgraded models were able to use night sights, which did not require illumination.

Production now

Nowadays, weapons developed by Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov are widely used in many countries of Asia, the Middle East, and the countries of the European Union. But now we are talking about the Kalashnikov machine gun and its variations. So, they are produced today (except Russia) in China, as well as Bulgaria and Romania.

History of creation

No matter what anyone said, but the Soviet command gained experience from the Second World War. Then, as we know, the Wehrmacht succeeded in successfully introducing MG 34 / MG 42 machine guns into the armament of the German occupying army. Thus, the Soviet engineers on orders from above intensively engaged in the development of similar weapons. For obvious reasons, Mikhail Timofeevich Kalashnikov succeeded in this.

The tactical and technical requirements for weapons were approved in 1946. Gunnery engineers were required to create a single machine gun, which would replace Maxim's machine gun.

An interesting fact is that the design of a single machine gun was proposed in the early twentieth century, in the 20s. She was offered by Vladimir Fedorov, who was the designer of small arms.

A team of Izhevsk gunsmiths, headed by Kalashnikov, joined the process of developing a single machine gun in the 50s. The team at that time consisted of several other people: Krupin V. V., Kryakushin A. D., Pushchin V. N. The basis of the machine gun is the easy construction of a Kalashnikov assault rifle. There were reasons for that, because such a construction provided ease of use and reliability.

In 1960, tests were held, the purpose of which was to identify the best version of the machine gun. Testing passed the PC, as well as the machine gun Nikitin-Solovyov. Won, of course, the PC. The following key benefits were identified:

1) As an ammunition ammunition used caliber 7.62 millimeters, which was equipped with a standard ribbon from Maxim's machine gun, for example.

2) The PC was less sensitive to the gap between the gas pipe and the piston.

3) There was less sensitivity to silence. This is really important when used on armored vehicles.

4) Locking points are adjustable.

5) Incomplete disassembly is much easier and easier.

6) Pollution is not so intense. Cleaning is not an example easier.

7) Parts are more resistant, the machine gun is more stable.

What should be expected from PCT?

We have already said that restorative therapy aims to accelerate the synthesis of testosterone and help the body recover. However, you should understand that no matter how correctly a plan is made for PCT, it will not be possible to return the concentration of natural hormones to a normal state.

In addition, if anabolic steroids were used "by eye" and the pituitary arc was seriously damaged, then there is no such PCT that can help in this situation. But in any case, the completion of the course AAS and the restoration of the body is based on the principle of the reverse response, and here rehabilitation therapy should have a stimulating effect on the secretion of luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones. It is these substances that regulate the rate of testosterone production.

If you do not have a pre-planned plan of rehabilitation therapy, the body can recover more than one year. At the same time, it is necessary to remember about the powerful hormonal stress in which the body is located with a low concentration of testosterone. Everyone understands that this does not bode well.

If you start a PCT, then significantly speed up the recovery. Even if the concentration of hormones and does not reach during this period of normal values, then you should bring these figures to a level where the male hormone will be enough to fulfill its role and continue to increase.

Implementation of a rehabilitation therapy plan

The beginning of the rehabilitation therapy should be consistent with the completion of anabolic steroids. This is a truism and it is not negotiable. However, there is one nuance. When you want to stop using steroids for a short period of time, restorative therapy may become undesirable and will only increase the stress the body receives.

If you decide that you will give yourself a rest from anabolic steroids for at least three months, then you should think about carrying out rehabilitation therapy. If your break is shorter, you do not need a PCT. Moreover, all the mass lost in this pause will be quickly returned during the new cycle. When your vacation will be three months or more, you should definitely make a plan of rehabilitation therapy. At the same time, you should understand that when talking about a pause between courses, then you should not include the time of the rehabilitation therapy itself.

How to conduct PCT?

You can use different AAS cycles using any medication that meets your goals. With rehabilitation therapy, the situation is different. You must take Clomid or Tamoxifen. They are not only able to reduce the concentration of estradiol, but also restore testosterone levels.

In addition, depending on the dosage of anabolic steroids and the duration of the steroid cycle, you may need gonadotropin. This hormone directly affects the testicles, simulating the work of luteinizing hormone. However, it should be used during the course itself, most often it is done at the final stage of a cycle three weeks before its completion. If gonadotropin is used in large quantities or for a long time (more than three weeks), it can be harmful to the pituitary arc.

An alternative to this drug may be Somatotropin. He will be able to protect muscles from destruction. But growth hormone needs to be taken for a long time, and if your rehabilitation therapy lasts for several weeks, then it will not benefit. If you have used Somatotropin during the AAS cycle, then continue to do so during rehabilitation therapy in similar dosages.

Let us turn to the use of antiestrogens. You must remember that the time for the start of rehabilitation therapy depends on the anabolic steroids used in the course. When at least one prolonged ester has been applied, start PCT no earlier than two weeks after the last injection of the steroid. If the half-life of steroids was small, then you can start PCT after a couple of days.

Clomid and Tamoxifen are very similar in many ways, and you cannot say which drug is more effective. However, differences in dosages exist. The optimal daily dose of Tamoxifen is 40 milligrams, and Clomid is 150. It is necessary to take drugs for at least 14 days. To monitor the progress of the body's recovery, it is advisable to do tests and then you will understand when it is possible to complete the rehabilitation therapy.
