Russians & their submarines...

Y'know... Maybe it's just me - but I can't help thinking that maybe - just MAYBE - the Russians REALLY shouldn't try mixing submarines & nuclear propulsion.

Vlad, ol' buddy?? Why don't you guys just go back to diesel?? Because with the nuclear stuff, your track record is ABSOLUTE S**T. (No offense...)

'16 Phantom Black SS (The awesome DD) - ~ 11k miles at the moment, auto, sunroof, full-size spare. Just a couple of mild cosmetic mods so far.
'89 Trans Am GTA (The NEVER-ending swap project!) - Forged bottom-end 6.2L, built T56, Ford 9", Baer brakes, etc... Eventually hope to run road-course, open-road & standing mile events with it - if I can ever get it completed...

always one fascinating subject ,,
I once dated the X of one of the Captains ..
Also worked the design/mfg of sonars retro/installed at Newport News, VA ...

life under the sea is a crap shoot at best ...

nuke power with nuke weapons …

US has lost 2
Soviet Navy lost 5
Russian Navy lost 2

there are others, but with diesel engines, carrying nukes …

we track all their subs, unsure if they can track all of ours ...

all known units :

our nuclear subs are decedents of Nazi Germany's XXI U-boat technology ...

How many non-nuclear armed subs would be in service?

Most off the Russian fleet of subs are diesel/electric and are in serious disrepair.

Unfortunately we have had 2 more nuclear subs submerge than have surfaced also. Submarines are incredibly dangerous in general. Nuclear power just adds another very large level of complexity....

They still have about a dozen Akula's in service IIRC and those are pretty stout subs.

They were building a class after that which were supposedly the most expensive subs on the planet, so not sure if that's still proceeding. I'd think they're devoting a sizeable chunk of the navy's funding to rebuilding ol'smokey aka Kuznetsov, can't imagine the Russians are flush with cash being oil has stayed somewhat low the past 2-3 years.

lets not forget that China and N.Korea are also adding to the world of nuclear subs

that, to me, is disturbing

👍👍👍 the Russian Typhoon Class was the big one. It displaced 48,000 tons according to Google. The replacement sub, Borei Class, is a lot smaller and more economical to build.
