Description


Flight-flown Russian Soyuz Sokol KV-2 pressurized crew ‘rescue’ suit including helmet, gloves, boots, and slip-ons, as made by Zvedza for Soyuz cosmonauts. Markings on the gloves indicate that this belonged to Cosmonaut Anatoly Artsebarsky and that it had flown to the Mir space station. This suit was apparently worn by him on Soyuz TM-12/ Mir EO9 where he spent more than 144 days onboard Mir. This model suit was first used on Soyuz T-2 in 1980 and is still in use today during launch and descent. This suit is white nylon canvas with blue trim. It has an attached pressurized hood with a hinged plastic visor secured to a blue anodized aluminum clavicle flange, trussed sleeves with adjustable articulating cables in the upper arm and webbed belt lashings, a pressure gauge on the left sleeve, detachable gloves, double-V-front zip closure, lace-up crotch with triangular placket, anodized aluminum umbilical interfaces on body for electrical, air, and coolant line with attached cables and hoses, pressure equalization valve on chest, support sling wrapping from chest to back by means of webbed belts and metal clips, adjustable metrically calibrated webbed straps attached to metal rings on side seams and along crotch, pleated knees, a utility pocket on each leg, attached soled feet, and a rubberized Kapron cloth lining with Zvezda logo on the chest. Interestingly, Artsebarsky was in space during the August 1991 Soviet coup attempt. RRAuction COA.
