“Here all suspicion needs must be abandoned,
All cowardice must needs be here extinct” – Dante

It’s obvious that in a submarine, all are equal before death. Equal, but helpless. A submarine is a closed space inside of which any emergency can happen. In this case, the submariners must eliminate it as soon as possible, having kept oxygen, power and ability to operate as a team.

Several groups of submariners receive a mandatory briefing before the practical exercise on fire extinguishing in a burning compartment. Inside a metal room, resembling a real submarine compartment, the nozzles injecting diesel fuel are installed. The ignited fuel gives heat, light and smoke and deprives the submariners of oxygen. Being very close to the source of the open flame, they must extinguish it with foam as soon as possible.

The instructor says that controlling the fear of fire is one of the most important aspects of training. The one who is undaunted and cold-blooded can withstand the elements more effectively.

After extinguishing, all quickly leave the hot compartment, stroking their burned hair and taking off asbestos gloves. At the exit they must clearly answer the question about their health condition.

  1. Old but in good working condition. I would have killed to be aboard on of his class. I served aboard a 705 many years ago, much more cramped, lovely boats and very capable though.

  2. Old joke: How do tell if a man is with the Northern Fleet? A: He glows in the dark (a reference to the widespread nukes and frequent accidents).
