Let's walk through two abandoned complexes one of which is dislocated next to rows of left military machines and equipment.
Another Stalker Zone…
What an unusual find! I wonder how common it is to find ammo and small arms parts in abandoned ex-Soviet military installations? From what I saw there were magazines for both the AKM and AK-74 as well as the sniper rifle stocks (Dragunov?). for those who may not be familiar with them, the AK-47 and AKM used metal magazines while the AK-74 used brown plastic (Bakelite?) magazines and are less curved than the earlier Kalashnikov magazines because of the change in ammo, if memory serves.
The other odd thing was seeing the picture of the early model Ford Taurus on the wall. It would have been introduced in the US during communist times and I have to wonder why it would be there.
Those Stocks are from PKM machine guns. the ribbed stamped steel mags are AK-47/AKM. the brown Bakelite are mostly AK-74 though there appears to be at least one Bakelite AKM mag there. the ammo links are PKM as is the belt box. the drum mag appears to be a 7.62 RPK one.

*sigh* double post ….
More fun for a live action Fallout LARP but sheesh, doesn’t the Russian army recycle anything?
the black, ridged foam covering some of the walls appears to be soundproof foam. a high-security recording studio?
I doubt the black, ridged foam covering is for audio experiments. It looks to me more like an antenna testing room. Those pyramid shaped foams are probably covered with graphite to minimize reflections from the walls. I suspect rooms have been designed for for taking the antenna diagram and there was some radio research going on this site.
Russia has quite an assortment of abandoned buildings. Creepy and cool at the same time
