4 Russian Nuclear Submarine Emergency Module

Russian Nuclear Submarine Emergency Module

Posted on November 10, 2014 by tim


Let’s kick start the week with something cool and never before seen. Like for example, did you know that some Russian submarines have an emergency capsule – a module where people can get in and it would eject and rush to the surface, saving the crew (or a part of the crew) and letting the big boat go sinking further down? If you didn’t know that, we have the photos from a recent testing of this thing. Let’s see..

I am not sure if the older submarines had this but these newer ones have, and here they test it. The submarine goes deep in the sea and then some crew members move into this thing and the submarine ejects it. It’s made in such a way that even when the submarine launches its emergency capsule there is no water breach in its place, so the submarine can sail further.

To imitate an emergency, they took a huge submarine that weighs over 13,000 tons and put it 40 meters deep mimicking it laying on the sea bottom with the engines off. Then they launched the capsule.
