Russian Navy Unique Project: Two-Person Mini  Submarine Called Triton

Soviet Union had some uber cool things. For example this mini navy submarine “Triton-1M” which could seat two and only 32 of such were released. They could stealthy carry you on an underwater journey whenever comrade admiral sends you. Straight out of some unreleased Bond movie! See photos, thanks to Russian blogger Oleg here:

This one hasn’t survived till now, but out of other 32 it’s hard to say where are the others. Maybe an oligarch or two have some of those refurbished and waiting in their private garages in case of emergency escape need arises.

  1. I confess, this is a ‘new one’, for me, and I have studied much on the WWII mini and microsubs.

    It appears to be an infiltration device, with an explosive likely place by hand by the operator.

    (Great overview at wikipeidia at : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_torpedo

    Short-ranged, under-powered, even in modest tides and currents, one cannot help but admire the brave pilots.

    That they may seem a useless device can be easily contained when you seek just a bit of their history.
