i am not sure this question fits in here - but i could find no better space/forum for it

see:

http://astronautix.com/lvs/r5.htm

"The Generator-S radiological warhead for the R-5 was developed in the early 1950's. In order to handle the warhead OKBT Kirov Factory built the shielded manipulator vehicle Objekt 805, which had a total mass of 72 tonnes. Following the demonstration the system was accepted by the military in 1955."

now - are there any pictures/drawings/plans/specifications available anywhere for this vehicle - object 805?

thanks in advance ..

Bumping an old thread, a 72 tonne vehicle is pretty heavy, it must have some sort of thick armour?

Lots of lead to protect from radiation.
