Russian Photos of its Submarines


The Russian Defense Ministry released for the first time photos of a cargo ship carrying two of its Akula II-class nuclear-powered submarines.

The two Russian submarines, the Bratsk and the Samara are transported from Kamchatka to Severodvinsk at the Zvezdochka shipyard, where both will receive modernization upgrades.

Nikolay Cherkashin of explains:

“Subs provide Russia with an invaluable means of sneaking relatively unhindered through these obstacles without having to launch from the far North.”
