Created by OAO Sptsmash by the order of main Armor department the new prototype on picture was ordered by the main department of special programs of the President of Russian Federation. The main features of the "Ladoga" is an outstanding protection against both blast and radiation factors, autonomous air generation cycle (just like used on space stations), outstanding maneuverability. The hull front and crew placement is from perspective tank.

The first prototypes of the "Ladoga" were used during the disaster on Chernobyl nuclear power station.

Note the difference with new variant.
So it's a mobile Civil Defence command post? How many are covered by the initial production order?

EDIT: Just read it again, and realised that it was talking about a new prototype and not production examples. Woops!
what about those pictures?

There is at least one kept in museum, but since LKZ only made like four or five of them, they are definitely a rare creature.
