The kit was meant to detect organophosphorus agents, sarin, soman, V-gases..., phosgene, diphosgene, hydrocyanic acid, cyan chloride and mustard gas etc.
The kit contains test tubes, hand piston pump used to pump test air through a tube indicator, sample containers, small shovel, manual, reagents.... All packed in a very nice steel box, supplied with strap.
Does the kit work? NO, not any more, these were packed in 1979-1984, if the stamps are accurate, the seals, rubber parts and reagents are likely not very good anymore. The manual might have some information about expiration, but as our resident soviet army veteran is quarantined in his home until COVID passes, we are not able to read the manual. The buyers responsibility is to read manual before use :D
