Semi-abandoned military unit
• semi-abandoned military unit
After taking a rest after his arrival in St. Petersburg, we went to explore the island of Kotlin on which the Kronstadt. Even a cursory look at satellite maps was enough to understand that on the island are so many military units, starting from the current and ending completely abandoned. In this post we will focus on more active military unit.
Approaching the three-meter wooden fence, initially had the impression that part of the abandoned ten years so ago. But the fence was exclusion zone, for which occasionally, but maintained. After passing the non-working sentry towers and crawl under barbed wire several perimeters, we went to a number of ZIL, which are folded quietly in the grass.
A little further on stood a few cars. If I am not mistaken, the GAZ-66.
In addition to the wind noise, no sounds in the territory was, and we decided to get to the next building.
A total area of about five buildings, but it managed to examine just one building. The building, which at the pictures, we are now climbed.
The building is divided into two parts, and you can not get from one to another. The first part of the building is abandoned, there used to be a training class on driving.
A lot of posters, charts and signs were scattered everywhere.
While the purpose of this military unit was a mystery to us.
But in the second part of the building, which looked much better, we were able to find information on the appointment of the.
Behind the door with this sign and cleared, what does the military unit. Previously, there was based coastal antiship complex 4K51 "Frontier".
the complex looked like this. Photo taken from the Internet.
In the room with the documents lying product layout 4A-51P-split training missiles.
3M51 missile is designed to destroy surface ships of all types under strong electronic and fire countermeasures can be placed on combat surface ships, submarines and aircraft. Rocket looks like this.
In addition to the layout and the documents interest are the machines that stood there.
There were three Kunga, one on the chassis of GAZ and ZIL two on the chassis. All of them were in very good condition.
I assume that the military trucks needed just to service the missiles and complex "Frontier".
Inside, all equipped and in good condition.
This is an internal Kung on ZIL chassis.
The fact that it is still active and is on the balance of the Defense Ministry, argued a number of documents from February 2012. They had a list of people who had the right to go into the shop. The lucky there were only four. Two captain, first lieutenant and major.
Once the building has a small laboratory with different equipment.
Already at the exit from the building, I noticed a stand on how to conserve cruise anti-ship missiles P-15. It is these missiles and charge antiship complex 4K51 "Frontier".
Here is the missile R-15. Photo taken from the Internet.
At this point we decided to quietly and unobtrusively to leave as in the street started to recover and to be caught, we did not want.
