          I suspect that torpedoes 650mm and 533mm are very noticeably different in appearance, it is difficult to mix. Although, of course, someone is smart, and someone is strong ...

          If you have a gun and an assault rifle, will there be confusion with ammunition?

      650 mm torpedoes have a more powerful warhead and range.
      A 533 mm torpedo can fit on a submarine more.
      Each caliber of torpedoes has its advantages and disadvantages.

          Are you really not aware of the "thick Russian torpedo", or is it just a banter? Didn't you hear or read anything about the nuclear submarine Kursk? There were just 650mm - everything is attributed to such a torpedo ...

        Unfortunately, the 633 torpedoes were abandoned on the new nuclear submarines. Apparently, the tragedy of Kursk played its evil role here. Where is the "fat" torpedo blamed.

          Nope, 633mm - you confuse it. Either 650 mm or 533 mm.

        And Gauges on Vepr through 533 mm can be launched.
        Colleague novel66, how not funny, partly right.
        On Ash-trees, etc. 855 TA 650 mm - no. hi

      For different torpedoes, however ... this was the case according to the original project.

      In different situations, they use either a pistol, then a machine gun, or a howitzer. You can, of course, kill everyone, even a trifle, with artillery. As the saying goes - "big ship, big torpedo"

    It’s a shame for the pier, the submarine is standing and there are really no fenders, part of it is hanging up.

    Everything has its time - they will repair it. Here in Baltiysk, the mooring walls were repaired with dignity ...

    With the exit from Boar repair, the number of mapples in the system will be 14 out of 23. And after the adoption of the Kazan fleet - 15 out of 24. This will say that we have passed the bottleneck. If the Leopard is surrendered this year, then we will get the maple serviceability in two-thirds. This is already good. Better than when more than half of the mapples were either under repair, or on modernization, or on hold. good

      Besides Kazan 885, Novosibirsk 885 is also promised this year. Another 2 Borea-A and 1 diesel. Bold. Hope everything goes according to plan. That would be 5 boats every year

        I don’t believe that they will hand over Novosibirsk. Until the head Kazan is surrendered, the tests of Novosibirsk will be slowed down. Again, there is an option that according to the results of the tests Kazan will have to do some work and this will also delay the delivery of serial boats. Of course, I would expect to surrender Novosibirsk only next year.
        Here Boreas can both pass. Prince Vladimir has already passed all the tests and I am very surprised. that they didn’t take him under the Christmas tree as usual. I think they will guess by May 9th. There were no special problems, they can and Oleg have time to turn in this year. Well, they will surely surrender the Varshavyanka - everything is debugged there, the process is already ordinary.

      Not necessary. Perhaps 650mm TA can be used not only for torpedoes - it would be strange if the designers did not think about it and the operators did not take care. And then - do not cut them for repair ...

        There was reasoning that 650mm is right to save for missiles.
