Russian Submarines On Their Way to Repair

Posted on August 28, 2014 by team

Russian submarines of project 971 “Bratsk” and “Samara” are loaded on a Dutch vessel to be taken to Severodvinsk for repair. The Chinese vessel  “Hai Yang Shi You”, in its turn, will take NPS K-442 “Chelyabinsk”  (project 949 A) to Primorye for modernization.

“Samara” was unlucky to be hit by a torpedo in its bow.

The Dutch vessel “Transshelf” was built in the 80s in Finland for the USSR.

    How long have they been sitting?

    I can’t believe it, that the Russian Navy allows to take pictures of the sub’s propellers. They supposse to be top secret stuff; wether old or new.

      Don’t worry. The modern reparations in Russia are the secret stuff.

    • Marcus says:

      Maybe it was 50 years ago… nowdays hundreds of thousands of people have seen the propellers.

      The new subs dont have propellers, they have a more silent internal jet drift.

    • Kecap Manis says:

      Indeed, propeller design is considered top secret. It looks like they try to cover it with shroud but most part still can be seen.
