Buran OK - MT

OK-MT was built in Moscow in 1983 for technological developments, the transport documentation development and loading of the gas tanks, the hermetic systems of safety, the entry and the exit of the crew, the development of the military operations, the maintenance and the flight manuals.

After these tests it was renamed in OK-ML-2 and was transported at Baļkonour by the VM-T plane, and was used to test the operation of the interfaces systems with Energia. Initially it would have been used for the second flight of Energia and also burned in the atmosphere. As it older sister OK-ML-1 it resides now at Baļkonour, but is sheltered in MIK building near the Ptichka shuttle (building 80, Area 112A).  - by Vassili Petrovitch
