NUMBER: None WAC N0-. 167 25X1 BRIEF NO.: B-9-57 DATE: 5 February 1957 LAT.: 55?26'N to 55?36'N LONG.: 35045'E to 36?59'E 25X1 D REFERENCES: Target Mosaic: 0167-9971-O.25M Target Chart: 0167-9998-4-100 Map: AM Series N501; NN37m1, NN36m3. Other: HTA Rm1-S7 "Unidentified Soviet Construction Project near Mozhaysk, USSR". ENCLOSURES: Map showing location of a possible Moscow.Mozhaysk power line west- southwest of Moscow. REQUIREMENT RR/HTA/E/Rl1Ii./56: Locate and describe reported new power line west of Moscow. The accompanying ma indicates the route of a power line evident on aerial 2 5X1 D photography l The gaps in the route as shown are due in some cases to heavy clou cover, and in other cases to the fact that the line becomes "lost" in areas of open fields or towns. No evidence of such a line appears o photography, 25X1 D The line can be traced continuously from a point inside an unidentified construction project 75 miles west-southwest of Moscow and near Mozhaysk, to a point just south of Mozhaysk where open fields prevent determination or the right- ofway. The power line, or another one like it., then can be seen northeast of Mozhaysk and can be traced intermittently to Golitsyno. It is probable that this line continues in a northeastly direction to: the substation at Kuntsevo, where it joins the Moscow grid. This indicates the strong possibility that power for the unidentified construction project near Mozhaysk is supplied from the Moscow grid. Sightings of a power line in several of the areas covered by clouds on the photography have been reported. These are in agreement withi the Mozhaysk- Kuntsevo rottt-e as shown on the accompanying map. Spacing of the towers in this line ranges from 7008 to 8008. The clearing through wooded areas ranges from 65' to 200', and a service road or path leads from tower to tower-, The height of-the towers is approximately 801. They appear to be narrow, tapered, steel-lattice towers supporting two or three'cross. arms. The line appears to have the capacity of Carr u3 to 1 0 KV.
