The 16th Red Banner Submarine Squadron (Photos)

Posted: September 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

The Red Banner submarine squadron was formed in 1938, but at that time it was called differently. By the way, the squadron changed its name many times. During its long and rich history, the squadron participated in WW II and several science experiments. Currently there are 20 submarines there, some of them serve in the world ocean. Today we’ll step aboard the nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine 949A Chelyabinsk.


Crews do not watch their submarines, there are special guard companies to do this work.

Restricted zone in the raduis of 5 meters.

As the vessel serves for the Russian navy, it is not allowed to see or photograph some of its strategical parts.

After taking a shower, submariners can rest in cabins with flowers, watch TV or play chess that is rather useful.

Very nice and neat places.
