    hang on havent’ they got the dates wrong

  2. Tomas Chat says:

    Interesting photos of the Russian submarine fleet. Why is there a photo of the battleship USS Iowa firing its main turret cannons right in the middle of page 2? That’s not even slightly Russian!

  3. Michael says:

    hardly any picture show submarines from WWII or earlier! most of them a are nuclear powered submarines

  4. Jordan says:

    Am I missing the joke? These are all post-war boats.

  5. anyad says:

    The dates don’t match the pictures. These aren’t submarines from the ’40s.

  6. Xoliul says:

    I’m very confused, these years all state 1930-1940’s, yet the pictures look like submarines that have to be at least from the 70’s or something ??

  7. Xoliul says:

    Yeah so these are almost all Oscar / Oscar II class submarines ?

  8. stona says:

    Hehe, change the date or pictures :)
    Nuclear submarines in 1933? :D

  9. alessio215 says:

    impressive submarines. where they really made in the 30’s?
    They had already a modern hydrodynamic shape, while the submarines from the west had still a surface boat shape
    impressive they were ahaid of their time

  10. Labrat says:

    What’s the Iowa class doing in the middle of all these for?

  11. dian says:

    is it right that you published date of submarine build date between 1930 to 1940??

  12. Sniff says:

    Is 1930, 1990 or 1993??
    Proof-reading at its best!! :)

  13. Sniff says:

    That’s USS Iowa! Maybe the picture is take from a Russian submarine! :D

  14. Yorkshire says:

    You’re having a laugh with the dates right?

  15. daniel magnusson says:

    .none of these boats are
    from the date described under the photo.. this is funny by the way . Whats happening are you changing the history ?

  16. _alex says:

    Timestamps of digital cameras on some pictures…

  17. Gunaike Aner says:

    durenj….izmeni daty kartinok, istorik ty :-)

  18. Taisto says:

    Interesting conceptual psy-op//art//warfare. Very DADA.

  19. Dickey Splurge says:

    Maybe these are classified photos accidentally released because someone put the wrong date on them.

  20. cockatrice says:

    Calling foul on this, the L-class submarines in no way look like the pictures titled as such. They were rather crude enclosed boats in shape.

  21. cockatrice says:

    This is all post-WWII stuff when submarines started looking like submarines. Probably ’50s and later. Someone needs to re-research them as the post would be far more interesting with proper dates on it.

  22. George Johnson says:

    I’m guessing the photo’s were just place holders, the real WWII sub photo’s were to be added later.
    So the description doesn’t add up, and when this site grabbed the photo’s, they just copied the description, not knowing they don’t even come close to matching up.
    But um… isn’t that the Iowa firing it’s mighty guns?

  23. Apu Gupta says:

    lmao i wonder what smoked the editor

    • A-Star says:

      Yes, it’s Kursk.

    • Jon says:

      Amazing photos! what are the cables going under the corvette and the Antey submarine for?

      • Katchoo says:

        It looks like those cables are for deperming (permamently lowering the magnetic signature of the ship) as opposed to degausing (which is a temporary effect). Degausing cables horizontally ring the ship with an on/off switch. Deperming wraps the ship and is accomplished mainly in newer ships.

  24. James says:

    this site is getting worse and worse, they seem to care only for attention, well good luck with that soon!

  25. jeffrey pigden says:

    Didn’t you know … Comrade Stalin INVENTED the atomic submarine in 1938 !

  26. komar says:

    hello greatings from germany – thank you smithsmitty!
    nice photos – i have never seen that.
    i can sleep verry well – russia is powerfull.

  27. komar says:

    When I was young and went to school we learned in the 60 years, that 1 submarines ship of soviet union comes from under and broke the ice from northpool and than the peoples play football in the sun.

  28. This the K–141 Kursk ?? :D

  29. mudgutz says:

    These pictures aren’t that old. I met that walrus in 2006!

  30. SSN779-Adiv says:

    A whole lot of Oscars, not much else. Also, a lot of these are not Pacific, for example, you have Kursk and the aircraft carrier Kuznetsov, both of the Northern Fleet (Arctic Ocean). To echo some earlier comments, dates are all off, none of the boats in this set are from before the ’70s (I THINK you have a Victor in there, but may be mistaken), and what the bloody hell is the USS Iowa doing in here?!

  31. kyleunnis says:

    I love the Oscar…Such a bad ass machine. And I love how somebody snuck in a pic of a Iowa Class Battleship…
