Apparatus rover "Kharkovchanka-II»
• The device all-terrain vehicle "Kharkovchanka-II"
Antarctic winter is over, and now we Antarctic summer with Antarctic heat - the temperature rises as much as minus twenty-nine.
Today we'll look at the second type of Kharkov. And a little catch them the next of kin - heavy artillery tractors.
a little distracted.
The photo above was done at minus seventy-five. Camera Canon EOS 600D at a temperature enough for forty minutes, the photographer - on a smaller one.
shooting technique is as follows: the camera is turned on even in the heat - in the cold chamber does not want to be included - then Yurtsom photographer with a flashlight and a fine run trot to the place of shooting, tschas keep the heat remains. Tripod rastopyrivat vdlinu useless because skukozhivaetsya metal in the cold, and joint locks simply do not hold. Ten minutes later tripod head will freeze completely, and the camera will have to send together with a tripod.
A scene is selected by moving yurtsa flashlight; Aim is conducted very roughly, the assessment of several of the photographs, because the display in the viewfinder and can not see a damn. The camera approach is necessary, only holding his breath - the moisture exhaled air then frosted on the optics. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the camera control buttons for some reason, are not intended for gloves, so from time to time necessary to remove the risk of frostbitten fingers.
Yurtsom is controlled via the voice interface.
After about half an hour lag camera are simply indecent; photographer freezes himself so much that revolves only thought in my head: "Well, why the heck I do need it?". This means that it is time to call it a day. Qualitatively promorozhennaya photographer with longer concealed hatred looks at yurtsa which Antarctic night coolness do not care - he's quantum! The camera turns off, the battery and the memory card is removed, the camera itself is pushed into the vacuum bag, or air moisture condenses on it and in it.
But let us return to our sheep. That is, to Kharkov. We are three cars - two command and staff, and one for personnel.
We'll see what unutre Kharkov bearing the number "2".
A door, according to the hinge and locking device has a very decent weight.
So there is - look at its thickness. Sealers ssohlas - age. However, the snow piled up into relatively few.
Let us see what is inside. The room is designed for three people, a lot of interior space occupied by cupboards and drawers.
There is a gas stove.
over the stove - Jets Thermos-boilers.
The inner wall has a plug, which fits over the boiler outlet when installing into place.
A single workplace, on the wall - control of the management.
Residential compartment Kharkovchanka Kharkovchanka-II from the first generation is distinguished by the auxiliary generator
and a more comfortable dressing room. The generator is used for heating and lighting dwelling unit, they also can be supplied with a different machine or welding machine, if necessary. In general, the energy does not happen much in Antarctica.
Residential compartment Kharkovchanka-II for the personnel is somewhat different. Stove is missing, but there are the same Jets boilers and six beds. These Kharkov from time to time used as living quarters.
On the floor there is a hatch that allows you to get into the car transmission.
Jura wanted to get, but I was able to titanic efforts to keep him. Get him then, well it to heram. But what sets Kharkov other trucks - hatch, which allows to get to the right in the cab of the driver.
I tried to get into the first cab to catch pofotat without yurtsa. Here he has got already leaked. How did he manage to ?!
windshields rise, with completely. A little later I realized why.
on the face Harkovchanok, just below the radiator grille, there are some ancient writings, we immediately decipher them failed.
I wish big pofotat powerful towing hitch, but it's a nice little bucket of just asking the frame.
Take a look at the teeth of tracks. Rust on them almost not conducted in the open air despite the years. Humidity-East with. In general, all the rust of the equipment was received in the lower latitudes. Expanders were both welded and Solid (solid-rolled?). One finger was welded - visible welding seam.
This is the essence of the same tractor AT-T, but has a romantic nickname of "penny" for an obvious reason.
Yurets Fota settled immediately. I was unable to refuse.
A little later we'll take a look under the hood of the smoked crocodile, next of kin Harkovchanok, Pierce his device, get some burnt solarium, and a little bit on it a ride.
