VZTS Ladoga — a machine for work in unavoidable situations

Killing machine, Take specific role in the localization of the Chernobyl disaster — ts highest protection "Ladoga". The design and construction of the machine was engaged KB-3 of the Leningrad plant. Kirov. Design task for highly secure car plant gets into the 70s. The main requirements for VZTS:
— not bad maneuverability;
— the highest level of security;
— long-term ability to work offline procedure;
— guarantee the protection of the crew from the bacteriological, chemical and radiation exposure;
— movement of vehicles in cases of force majeure shall not be uncomfortable for the people;
— machine must be ensured constant communication, both external and internal.
Line up VZTS must have been in a fairly short time, the new vehicle should be good to own unification with more releases of early machines. To develop machines make a special unit of the design bureau KB-A. It is a 82 years old and beginning to implement the required solutions VZTS. Managed a department project VZTS V.Burenkov.

Of the machine
Base VZTS — well-proven chassis of the crawler type of T-80 tank. At the base of established housing having a reinforced armor, made in the body is quite comfortable lounge with separate seating and lighting. Cleaning and humidification, life-support equipment, communications and surveillance equipment measuring the characteristics of a dirty environment — ensuring level machine with self-contained life support systems for gallakticheskoy area requires absolute sealing of the inner compartment. Power plant — type gas turbine engine GTD-1250. The unique property of the motor — shaking and release trapped dust. This is a desired property of the radioactive-contaminated sites. The machine design provides for its spirited deactivation. When you work in a dirty area air is supplied from a cylinder mounted above the engine-transmission compartment. Inside the housing is protected red lining — protection protivoneytronnogo type. Database protection of boron isotopes. Apart from the ordinary means of observation at the "Ladoga" still has 2 cameras. VZTS "Ladoga" is factory tests in the early 80's.

Implementation VZTS "Ladoga"
Eight days after the Chernobyl accident the car was flown to Kiev. Prior to Chernobyl "Ladoga" got its own power. Upon arrival to the accident, the car immediately cut one into work. Created a special unit of the different professionals. Total VZTS "Ladoga" during the operation of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant was about 4,700 km. Machine overcame the affected area where the background was more than 1500 X-rays per hour, was included inside the station, committed exploration in nearby counties, filmed on camera unsafe place and used for many other activities. Many of the designers of the machine perceive a particular role in the elimination of the tragedy. VZTS "Ladoga" was created by a very fit, the role of the machine brought an invaluable contribution to the elimination of the consequences of the disaster. Was acquired extensive experience in the work of special equipment. Until now VZTS "Ladoga" — a unique machine in its working features and hours in the affected areas. Similar machines no one else in the world.
