New Sub?

Postby greenman407 » Thu Jul 29, 2010 1:32 pm

What kind of Russian sub is this? I am trying to get a translation of the words. Perhaps a new SSK?

If you look at the general shape of the sail its very similar to the Borei class although it looks much ,much smaller to me. Any ideas???? :?: Perhaps it is the Borei and the camera angle makes it look smaller. I dont know :cry:

The translated words indicate that its on sea trials in the White Sea in Sept. 2009. It is of the Borei class and the name of the vessal is Uriy Dolgorukiy who was a Tzar in russia years ago.
