7 These Russian Giant Submarines Are Doomed to Be Scrapped

These Russian Giant Submarines Are Doomed to Be Scrapped

Posted on April 15, 2016 by tim

These huge giants are doomed. They are going to be dismantled very soon. Two of the  largest atomic submarines in the world “Arhangelsk” and “Severstal” (named after Russian corporation) would be torn apart and scraped for metal in the near future.

This is not any sort of joke. These huge Russian submarines really will be destroyed. One will be scrapped this autumn, another later.

Photos are clickable, click for the huge sized wallpapers!

Oleg, the author of the photos, says that it will be cheaper to destroy those and build the new ones of the next generation.

Also he says it’s absurd to try making a museum from such a giant. I don’t know why it’s absurd, it could be pretty cool, couldn’t it?

So after all these are destroyed, Russian would be left with only one active “Typhoon” class submarine, shown in the next photo:

This one is called “Dmitry Donskoy” and it will be the last to survive since the Soviet era.

    Don’t destroy submarines, make a museum.

    Every nation in the wordl, will make a museum, it’s a symbol of Soviet Union and Russia, also a lot of people will like to visit that museum and Russia can make a lot of money for many many years.

    I hope that the last one, will be transformed in a museum.

    Don’t destroy submarines, make a museum.

    Well at least they won’t be left to rust along the coast.

    Not the typhoons… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO come on… They could trash any other subs… Those are some of the greatests symbols of the cold war and are unique. They are the biggest nuclear subs in the world come on.

    A sad thing to see.Almost a piece of history now.I remember when these sub’s were first reported in the west,a deadly marvel for sure.

    Its sad to see these leviathans go away since they were one of the backbone of the Russian submarine force (especially during the cold war). However the cost of maintenance (nuclear reactor refueling) and repair is forcing the Russian navy to scrap them and keep one

    One sub will be placed as museum object in Patriot Park near Moscow. Dont worry!

    Personally I would like at least one of them kept as a museum. They are technological achievements, and our children – grandchildren could see what we wasted our money on.
    It is a pity that not more weapons from WW II were preserved for posterity. For example: more than 30000 Messerschmidt BF 109 were built, but I doubt there is even one original flying. Spitfires as well, just a handful flying planes out there. Some of the aluminium may be in your cheap frying pan, but I would rather see it flying at an airshow.
