Chernobyl Accident Reaction: What Vehicles Were Used

Posted on March 27, 2016 by team


“Prohibited area” of the Chernobyl NPP.

For accident management they used different kinds of vehicles, including home made ordinary cars and innovative foreign equipment.

Let us show you the first photos taken after the catastrophe. The author is Igor Kostin, a popular photographer.

Equipment cemetery right in the water. In the background – the burial of medical RAF 22031.

Car of liquidators. It had rare parts and was further used eccessively (why does it have to be wasted?), nobody cared much it was highly radioactive and dangerous to people…

    Not Komatsu units but ARA from Finland. Also Komatsus were used but those in the pic are ARA Toro loaders.

    3828???? I’ve see documentaries in Canada that said upwards of 100000 young troops were used for that roof cleaning and other high rad areas. I expect most of them are dead now. The state did them dirt and left them pretty much alone to die. I had a rad meter here in Toronto Canada and did note a slight rise in background count about a week and a half after the thing blew up. Now we have Fukushima to worry about too. Nuclear power is safe… Until it blows up.
