Russian manned Mars rover. Study 1961. Surface transports were part of all Soviet Mars expeditions.

Status: Study 1961. Gross mass: 8,000 kg (17,600 lb).

The earliest concepts had multiple articulated tracks. The elaborate Mars Train used wheeled vehicles equipped with manipulator arms so that extended surface operations could be undertaken in shirtsleeve comfort. Later Marsokhods were more austere, providing limited mobility around the landing site on short 30-day or 7-day sojourns on the surface.

Crew Size: 3.



Family: Mars rover. Country: Russia. Agency: Barmin bureau.
