|“|| Listen. Once there was a military motor column here transporting gas which didn't make it. No one knows what happened...|
Call of Pripyat Edit
Lieutenant Colonel K.S. Vlasov was part of an ill-fated convoy carrying A canister of Perin B3 gas over the Preobrazhensky Bridge. According to Internal order No. 423, Vlasov would have been riding in the first vehicle, which is at the south end of the vehicle column. Escort Vehicle #8 now lies overturned at the base of the bridge's southern-most arch. Inside the vehicle is a safe containing one of the two keys to unlock the strong box in the back of the central vehicle.
Vlasov comes into play during the optional Bloodsucker Lair mission. According to Owl, what caused the column to stop on the bridge and what happened to the unit is a mystery. There are several theories among the stalkers, which are chronicled on Colonel P.P. Slavin's page.
The four documents carried by Unit #423 can be sold to Owl.
