13 Russian Abandoned Bio Warfare Factory

Russian Abandoned Bio Warfare Factory

Russian blogger Armahema, known to hide his identity and visit some awesome places, often highly guarded places, and leave them unnoticed with a bunch of photos, has again visited a cool place. During the USSR era, this was an active factory. Officially it was producing vitamins and antibiotics. However, it was a well known secret

Those jets were widely used in the USSR, are very popular in modern day Russia and were also always sold abroad in large quantities. However, those two major jet labels are not the only ones. For example there are a few more jet aircraft engineering bureaus in the USSR.
Those jets are very rare, they were usually produced in very small quantities and just a few of the planes are left intact. So it was very lucky that Said, the photographer, went to an exposition where such rare jets are on display now. These are "Myasischev" planes, named after their chief engineer Vladimir Myasischev. They had a short name "M" and were dubbed M-50, M-18 etc., and we have a few of them inside:
