"Squids": the story with his head held high

29



Passed information that has been confirmed. Indeed, in April 2018 of the year, Rosatom Corporation announced a tender for the unloading of spent nuclear fuel from reactors of disposable nuclear submarines of the 667BDR project.

"Squids", which for three decades have been a nightmare for NATO in general and the United States in particular, are leaving.

K-223 "Podolsk" and K-433 "St. George the Victorious" were sentenced to write-off.

"Squids": the story with his head held high

K-223 "Podolsk"



K-433 "St. George the Victorious"


After them, only K-44 "Ryazan" and BS-136 "Orenburg" (formerly K-129) remain in service. Ryazan was simply “lucky” to play for repairs in the 2017 year, and Orenburg in the 1994 year was transformed into a carrier of ultra-small submarines designed by 09786.

The business card of the Kalmar project is super-reliable. Over the years of service (the average service life of each of the 14 boats for about 20 years), more than a dozen emergency situations happened to them - from fire to collision with an American submarine in 1981 year. However, none of the “Squid” sank or burned.

They were crazy at the time hikes, combat duty, firing ballistic missiles. Separate headache for "potential".

The R-29P rocket, the brainchild of Viktor Makeyev, unfortunately, who left us so early, was inferior to the Trident in some indicators, but nevertheless played a role in restoring parity between the USSR and the USA in terms of ICBMs for submarines.

The American "Poseidon" generally looked frivolous in quality weapons against P-29P, and only the appearance of the Trident somewhat improved the situation.

The reliability of the P-29P is simply amazing. The rocket is still in service, and firing rockets held. At the end of the 2015 of the year, Podolsk fired a P-29Р and fired successfully.

But - time. Time is the main enemy for everything. For shells, for reactors, for rockets.

Take the same "St. George". When making a transarctic transition in the waters of the Chukchi Sea, the submarine collided twice with ice floes, as a result of which the hull was seriously damaged. The crew eliminated the damage on their own, and the boat continued on its way.

In 2016, the crew of "Victorious" became the winner of the competition for the prize of the commander in chief of the Navy among strategic missile submarines. It is unlikely that in a year the boat turned into trash that needs to be disposed of. However, the years are not playing into the hands.

And now you just have to come to terms with the fact that the following conclusion is accepted: “Squids” have fully exhausted their resources and can no longer be part of fleet. More precisely, they can, but further extension of the service life will pose a threat to the crews.

38 years, namely, so many are in the ranks of "Podolsk" and "George the Victorious" - this is a lot. Even for highly reliable atomic submarines. Even for P-29Р rockets.



Of course, the Squids are losing heavily to the Boreas, who surpass them in all respects, and especially in the habitats of the crews.

“Squid” is ours yesterday. “Borey” is ours today and tomorrow, and it’s just fine that now three Boreas are in the ranks and five more are being built.

And Bulava is not P-29P. This is a more powerful weapon, even at the beginning of a rocket forced everyone to worry. But this is again today.

Squids, the 667BDR project, did even more for us than they could. They were part of our nuclear shield in the most terrible time for the country. When we didn’t even dare to dream of “Boreas” and “Ash”.

In addition, the former submarine of the project 667БДР, converted into a carrier of small submarines "Orenburg" brought the country as many territories as any army of the past could have won.



This is an operation in September 2012. The BS-136 "Orenburg" served as the carrier of the deep-sea nuclear research station - the submarine AC-12 of the 10831 project, known as "Losharik."



The expedition was carried out in order to clarify the high-latitude border of the continental shelf in the Arctic. Three rock samples were taken at a depth of 2-2,5 km to collect evidence of the Lomonosov and Mendeleev ridges belonging to the Russian continental shelf.

There was simply nothing for the UN Commission on the Law of the Sea to do, as you remember. Russian claims for the shelf have received real confirmation.

"Squids" go to history. Honor, glory and our gratitude to these ships and their crews!

      The main patrol area of ​​the Kamchatka SSBNs is the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. It is very difficult to get them there, a modern boat or not, it does not matter. But missile defense systems appeared in Alaska, Hawaii, Japan and Korea, which means that modern, low-noise ships are needed to shift patrols to the south of the Pacific Ocean. We cannot solve this problem with new missiles alone; we are going to Camran and Jakarta!

          Exactly.

          Again, someone agitated seen enough on TV.
          Our boats have no chance there.

              There are no modern TD-mine seekers at the Pacific Fleet.
              The “freshest” ones in those parts are MTShch pr. 266ME (the MO refused to complete the last of them due to obsolescence of the filling) and HSPs of project 1265. Both projects were developed in the 70s of the last century. Armament - a set of trawls and / or a comprehensive mine-seeker-destroyer KIU-1 developed in the same 70s.

    Um ... "Russian claims for the shelf have received real confirmation" ...
    I remember, in the days of the USSR, such a question simply did not arise request , that it would be necessary for someone to prove something ...
    The obituary for pr.667BDR turned out to be positive with many relative characteristics of these boats. They honestly served to protect our homeland ... But .. Aging and death are integral companions of development smile

      In Soviet times, no one had the technology to work on the Arctic shelf. Disputes about the division of the Arctic were already ongoing. Now the situation has changed, but the strength is not enough. There are not a few different funds for the army, but TC Star is stubbornly spinning advertising for all shit. But this is not the only state. TV channel. I think at the current level of patriotism, such funds can collect annually sufficient amounts for the annual financing of the construction of the notorious aircraft carrier ...

        The level of true patriotism, which from the heart, is steadily falling among the population.
        Outrageous corruption. constant price increases, lack of stability, miserable pensions, constant cuts, lower wages on the one hand weights - which we see in real life ..
        And a TV picture. where a lot of lies are pouring into our ears - different things.

        There is a lot of “Hurray” on this site - but believe me, this is not true patriotism.
        And you ... either paid, or gathered from all over the country (and you are not more than 1000, believers in TV Star) - but the real population of the Russian Federation - more than 100 million rubles.

        And how did you determine that it is Novomoskovsk? Was there a specific shoot? Outwardly, only Tula differs from them; there are covers of shafts of artful form. And the first and like the fifth had special “wings” for the laminar flow around the body, they were then cut off. Yes, and the “holes” in the sidehouse for the release of the communication antenna were white and black, I also don’t remember which buildings. And they differ in their internal atmosphere ... You get down not on your side, and you feel, well, not your ship ... There the stand is not so, the device is different ... And the crew is not yours. Like you know everyone, but not that ...

            Yes, actually these are my native ships, and external differences, and some internal ones I still remember. And after the autonomous regions, they still differed in the nature of the torn rubber, holey cuttings, and the “Novomoskovsk” in 1993 was still distinguished by a crumpled “muzzle” on the starboard side. True, it was in the 80-90s. After average repairs, the external parts could change, so I ask. And what are the external differences, for example, of the first and fourth corps or the fourth and last corps of BDRMs? And what are these cases? This is Deer Lip, 1989. Here are the differences.

                Son, felling cannot be full of holes by default. The submariner calling the wheelhouse / pull-out guards is the same submariner as I am Archbishop Makarios.

                Well, if you want to be smart, I'm ready to throw terms in terms. What about the differences between the BDRM corps? Are you silent And what do you know about Hippos? By the way, on August 6, 1991, not one of the seven BDRM corps (at that time there were 7 more) had names. So you are Archbishop Macarius.

                In general, you need to treat nerves. I asked a harmless question about why this is K-407. A normal person will calmly answer, and some who consider themselves to be grandfathers with backs overgrown with shells begin to spit poisonous saliva. And you could just remember the past, if, of course, Gadzhievo was also related to these ships. This year was the 70th anniversary of VVMUPP. It seems that many graduates, admirals, etc. have gathered. And the impression of how the wake was held ... The state of the school is depressing ...

    It was a real workhorse .... a horse .... a Cold War heavy truck. Worthily fulfilled the mission assigned to them. By the way, the operation of this series went without serious emergency. This ship can safely put a monument.
