name that flash

Can anyone identify this flash? It belonged to a friends dad and will be Russian made. I said I'd come on here and try to find some details on it.

"Russian-made" is leaving me scratching my head. No idea. The light unit itself brings to mind the old Polaroid-type flashes - this one was probably made during that same time frame. Aside from this feeble observation, I've nothing to suggest.

Mitica100 would be your man; he's a wizard at finding this stuff. He hasn't logged in here for awhile now, though.

Maybe someone else can offer a suggestion.

Looks like one of the old Foton flash units.
