In Soviet Russia, nuclear reactor goes on truck

If you needed further evidence that the Soviets were more than a little barmy, then here it is. They built a nuclear reactor onto a truck. Thats it, up there. They were used in the more distant corners of the country, presumably because in the more distant corners, fewer people would be irradiated when they used the things.

After the Chernobyl accident, the use of these things was discontinued, but crikey. Imagine seeing one of those things rolling up the main road of your town, village or hamlet. I’d run for my sodding life, wouldn’t you?

  • Mobile nuclear reactors would be really great in places where we can’t harvest wind energy, nor using water… this invention could become truly great for far remote areas…

  • The true intention of getting reactor onto a truck was not for safety reasons but rather transport a long lasting source of energy that couldn’t be available in remote areas. that truck is capable of powering an entire batalion enough to keep soldiers warm. soviets were ahead of their time just like that caspian sea monster…
