Atmospheric diving suit Hardsuit 1200.

A diver can work 365 meters deep.

Trial depth is 500 meters. The suit will be broken to pieces if a diver will go 1000 meters deep.

Constant pressure supported inside the suit makes gradual ascent unnecessary as no air decompression illness is expected.

Moving the crane.


All the operations are observed from the control room.

Rescue bell.

Distress beacon.

A case with components.

The rescue life-jacket is intended to be worn by a pilot. It is made of a rubber tissue and has three isolated chambers one of which is situated at the back and two others – on the chest. To obtain original floatability the chambers are filled with bast fiber. A luorescent pack placed in the left chest chamber produces a yellow-greenish spot that makes visual search of the injured person easier.

Aviation rescue container CAS-150.

Rescue boat LAS-5М-3.

    Awesome diving suits are awesome!

  3. testicules says:

    I wonder if these guys worked on the Kursk

  4. John says:

    Works unless you have a real problem where lives are at risk, then you need to call in the Norwegians.


  5. Nemef says:

    Presumably they only got all the equipment after the Kursk sank in just 108 metres of water and the Navy was unable to dive to that depth and save the sailors.

  6. Musa says:

    The hardsuit 1200 looks a whole lotta awkward but it’s nice that it’s pressurized so you can stay underwater longer/get in more bottom time.

    Also it’s, self-contained underwater breathing apparatus = SCUBA.

    Great post, thanks. 🙂

  7. Uncledoh says:

    looks pretty much decent. i believe they decided to ditch all of those soviet-made & outdated equipment and replace it by the new high-tech stuff. and that’s a good move.
