Pripyat Light Fixtures? « on: December 05, 2016, 09:48:45 AM » Author: dischargecraze
Hey community,

I have a question. I'm building this really awesome game that is located in Pripyat. I rebuild all of the building and roads, but now I want to rebuild the lanterns and fixtures. I tried to look up the fixture names but I couldn't find any information and so a few months later I just want to try it here.

Now I've got some links that might just be helpful, using street view in Pripyat.

Here's one of a fallen fixture, parted by the fall. There are more fixture that took a fall to see in street view, but this is one of the clearer ones. These probably fell because of the excessive rust these collected over 45 years.  Sad

Here's another one, look at the rust!

And a clearer photo.

That is the fixture I am looking for, so if someone could help me out that would be nice.
Thanks Smiley,

The luminaires look like "generic Soviet" and the lamps are Mercury, therefore are probably named RKU-* (РКУ-*). HPS versions (not in Pripyat, but if this luminaire existed in HPS elsewhere) would then be called JKU-* (ЖКУ-*). Where * is design version and lamp power to identify the specific luminaire

Take a look at Gospodin Horoshiy's gallery : http://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=4231



While back i read through this forum thread, that was talking specifically about those lanterns :

The forum is broken now so here is the archive, however all picture links are broken in that :

Generally here are some things in Russian you can google for :

светильники припять
уличные светильники припять
фонари припять

I discovered that it's probably called "РКУ-01-250". Grin
Thanks for helping me,

In Pripyat you can also find ORZ 7 fixtures which were made in Poland by Mesko, they look like this:
