Can you imagine what that thing must have sounded like inside when it all fired??  I'll bet it shook the whole station like terrier shaking a rat.  Putting a retro rocket to counteract the recoil might sound reasonable but the combined shock stress on the structure when both fired at once had to be considerable if not outright dangerous.

But then again, the Russians have never been real big on QA.....
