Submarine B 396: One of the Best Moscow Museums

Submarine B-396 is one of the most popular Moscow museums, but this photo story will not repeat what has already been shown or told.

The diesel-electric submarine B-396 “Novosibirsk Komsomolets” was built in 1980 to be used as part of the Northern Fleet and sail to the Mediterranean Sea, North and South Atlantic, western coast of Africa, in the Barents and Norwegian Seas. The submarine was decommissioned in 1998 and exhibited in the Naval museum in 2006.
