The last entry on the PDA is an audio recording: "...Whichever way we go, we always end up at the same exact spot. I still can't get used to this fog... It's weird that Chepurny disappeared without a trace. Maybe he found a way out?... Day six... We have run out of water... The Colonel flipped his lid and shot two people at point blank range and then himself... Now I'm on my own in this damn anomaly... If I hadn't fixed for our own communications with HQ to go down, they could have rescued us... and Duty wouldn't have existed. I wonder how things would have turned out... Ah, screw it. That Captain Tachenko died a long time ago... And this General Tachenko of Duty will follow him... that's justice, I suppose..." The recording terminates just after a gunshot can be heard.

General Tachenko's PDA's last entry.

This PDA appears only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


This PDA can be found on General Tachenko's body after a Space Anomaly releases him and his crew by the Cooling Tower when approached with a Svarog detector taken out. When the Player finds this PDA another mission - Duty History is initiated. It is up to the player either to give it to Owl for 2500 RU, give to Loki for 4000 RU, an SGI-5k, and 300 5.56x45 mm rounds or to Lt. Col. Shulga for 4000 RU, a Tunder S14, 60 9x39 mm SP-6 rounds, and 2 VOG-25 Grenades. This PDA is vital in obtaining either Friend of Duty, Friend of Freedom or A Man of Balance Achievements.


  • In the English dub of the game, a gunshot isn't heard at the end of the recording when General Tachenko committed suicide. One however, can be heard in the Russian dub.
  • In the Russian dub, General Tachenko talks about returning to "upper Syberian Tundra ... places full with wild" as a destination for his final "journey", its right before the "that´s justice" sentence. This is cut out from English version.
