Training of the Emergency Response Team

Training of the Emergency Response Team

On 25 March 1995 members of Aum Senrike used GB gas in the result of which over three thousand people got affected. 12 of them could never survive the attack. To prevent such an act in the Russian capital a special emergency response team was formed. It includes around 200 people and has more colonels and majors than any other detachment. The fact proves that the unit embraces the best specialists who sharpened their skills in Chernobyl, Afghanistan, Chechnya, etc. Let’s see how the emergency response team dislocated in the Moscow region is trained.

Black crow is the unit’s symbol. This bird lives 200 years and is resistant to any kinds of waste including radioactive. The crow is killing the snake with the spear just like St. George represented on the Coat of arms of Moscow.

Once such a team has already offered rebuff to terrorists from AUM Sinrike. Abusers were found red-handed when somebody saw how they were breaking ampules with colorless liquid and could report about it. However, two assailants managed to disappear in a crowd of people hurrying up away from the subway. One of the criminals who had been caught told policemen to get ready for a plenty of victims. In several minutes after the message about diversion in the Moscow subway was obtained the emergency response unit was on its way.

Road traffic was stopped. Officers went down to the subway station all covered with affected people lying on the floor. Specialists from the unit took samples, checked whether exhaust units were on and entrances and exits were isolated when they got a signal about another planned terroristic attack in a shop. So, a part of the unit went there.  A polygon for training depicted in the picture is filled with old tanks that will never be used in field battles anymore.

We can have a look at the fields stuffed with ‘antique ruins’.

Review of old metal constructions is followed by attending a concrete ground. The colonel says that demonstrative smoke screening won’t take place due to heat and fire hazard. However, training of military conscripts who arrived here just 2 weeks ago will be shown including some latest models.

In spite of the fact the soldiers arrived here just 2 weeks ago they could easily cope with rather a complicated task of putting on the all-service protective gear. Due to heat they were allowed not to wear box respirator that time.

The KPV heavy machine gun is a Soviet designed 14.5x114mm-caliber heavy machine gun, which first entered service as an infantry weapon in 1949.  It was later redesigned for anti-aircraft use, because it showed excellent results as an AA gun. The KPV is air-cooled and fitted with a chromed barrel. It uses a short recoil operation system with gas assistance and a rotary bolt.

    • Yeah. Why doesn’t the russian army invest in a john deer riding mower? It would make the place look better. Probably cut down on snakes and bugs too.

  1. The planes are two Yak-25 night fighters and one MiG-15 or MiG-17 (can’t tell them apart) in the backround. Anyway nice old planes and look well preserved.

  2. Interesting equipment. The casting of the tank turrents looked really pock marked. Is that from the age or were the Russian tanl rough cast. The Shermans don’t have those little craters everywhere.

    • A. Bunka here. I noticed the same thing at the Aberdeen Testing Grounds Museum in MD.
      I guess they were in a hurry, especially at Stalingrad. A damn good tank, simple, reliable, and took the Germans by surprise.

  3. One small suggestion; put the accessories on a trailer so the machine can change tools at the site instead of having to return to base.

    • The last plane is a MiG-17.The first Yak-25 is missing the engine nacelles.The MiG-17 has a larger air intake than the MiG-15 and has an increased wing sweep.It appears to be an early A model MiG-17 which did not have an after burning engine.
