Then the crews move to another training compartment which is being filled with the water arriving through the hole. All participants are dressed in waterproof suits. Having noticed the flow, they begin working together to stop the flood. All the work takes the team no more than 1.5 minutes. Though to apply a special patch to the hole with the help of a sliding tube and wooden struts is really hard without training. And water won’t wait…
Another stage of training is an emergency escape from the submarine. There is a special vertical pipe (15 meters long) in the building of the training center. Inside the pipe – water and darkness. The submariner gets into this unusual simulator at its bottom and learn to “float” to its top. His actions are controlled by infrared cameras placed inside. The diver ready to immediately come to the rescue is always on duty at the exit from the pipe.
And the last stage of training is to get on the life raft from the open water. The task seems to be easy but not everyone managed to succeed in it.
In a Submarine
The “Panther”, a multipurpose nuclear submarine of project 971 with a missile-torpedo armament.
The crew consists entirely of contract sailors as the forces of constant readiness require only professionals. It’s forbidden to smoke in a submarine, even during a long sail.
In a central post.
The submarine has a restroom for the psychological relief of the crew and even a small sauna. A galley is in absolute order. Food is always delicious, versatile, served four times a day. Sometimes, the crew even gets some red wine. Pictured: the commander of the submarine.
Take off the shoes before entering.
The medical department is equipped with everything necessary for surgical operations.
