Functioning Radio Station


Balashikha is a surface location which Artyom visits in Metro 2035. It is roughly 1 kilometer outside of Moscow.

Metro 2035 Edit

Artyom is told by a dying Lubyanka prisoner that Balashikha has an operational radio station that was constructed by the Red Line, however, it is unknown by the prisoner what the Red's are using it for.

The Radio station has a concrete wall surrounding it with a metal gate in the front. The station also has multiple rows of windmills producing electricity for the station.

There is a large pit filled with bodies of those who were forced to built the Radio Center's Defenses.

The station was actually built by Hansa, and is used as a jamming station. They have been blocking all radio transmissions coming in and out of Moscow. They are doing this because they believe that those who bombed Russia are still out there hunting survivors.

Trivia Edit

  • It is possible that the Radio Station fortress that Artyom finds here is the real life Moscow Radio Center 13
  • Balashikha is the site of a large Russian Army base and was closed to foreigners during the Soviet era, a ban which, in theory, remains to the present day.
  • It was the headquarters of the 1st Corps of the Soviet Air Defense Forces and is now the headquarters of the Operational-Strategic Command for Missile-Space Defense.
