This is something I’ve never seen, a motorcycle sidecar artillery outfit.
Shushpanzer says it’s for “dymopuska” and, although nobody was admitting it, chemical agents. Does that mean smokescreen?
The Aerowagon or aeromotowagon (Russian: Аэроваго́н, аэродрези́на) was an experimental high-speed railcar fitted with an aircraft engine and propeller traction invented by Valerian Abakovsky, a Russian engineer and communist from Latvia. It was originally intended to carry Soviet officials.
On 24 July 1921, a group of communists led by Fyodor Sergeyev took the Aerowagon from Moscow to the Tula collieries to test it. Abakovsky was also on board. Although they successfully arrived in Tula, on the return route to Moscow the Aerowagon derailed at high speed, killing everyone on board. The following people died in the accident:
John William Hewlett
Fyodor Sergeyev (Artyom)
Abakovsky himself, at the age of 25.
All six were buried in the Kremlin Wall Necropolis.
Abakovsky is on the List of Inventors Killed By Their Own Inventions
There are allegations of creating an underground nuclear submarine “Battle mole” in the USSR in 1962-1964, respectively. She worked on the principle of machines [that dug] the subway tunnels. Energy on-board the boat provided [by] a nuclear reactor. Had a titanium body with a pointed bow and stern with a diameter of 3.8 meters and a length of 35 meters. Crew - 16 people. The speed of movement under the ground - up to 15 km / h. Combat mission - destroy underground command centers and missile silos of the enemy.
Underground nuclear submarine “Battle mole” allegedly made on a specially constructed plant in Hromovka (Ukraine) and tested in the Urals, in the Rostov Region, in the suburban Nakhabino. Under the ground covered a total of more than 30 kilometers. The tests were terminated with respect to the explosion of one of the vehicles. After the change of leadership of the USSR in 1964 the project was canceled.
“power provided by on-board nuclear reactor”… “explosion of one of the vehicles”… whoopsy doodle! Bet the seismologists felt that one.
