There was information related to the repair work on the AS-31 underwater vehicle, known as "Losharik". This is a nuclear submarine station, on board of which there was a fire on July 1, 2019. According to official reports, a fire broke out in the battery compartment, and the nuclear power plant was not damaged. The titanium hull of the special-purpose submarine was allegedly not damaged either.

In that fire, 14 submariners died, including two Heroes of Russia.

According to TASS, the total duration of repairs at the Losharik underwater nuclear power plant will be up to 4 years. The information service refers to a source in the military-industrial complex.

After the repair of the AS-31 "Losharik" will return to the combat strength of the Russian Navy.

Let us remind you that a few days ago the unloading of the so-called active reactor zone was completed at the Severodvinsk Zvyozdochka plant. After that, the renovation began.

The characteristics of the AS-31 and the purpose of this underwater vehicle are classified. Open sources say that the Losharik's crew consists of 25 people (and all officers), the autonomy of navigation may exceed the autonomy of navigation of any of the existing underwater vehicles.

    Since it is so secret, why write about it?

      In this case, just a rehash from someone else's voice.
      In general, not a single fact is new.
      Well, everything has already been sucked to the bone ...
      In general, about nothing.

        Efremov has a story about how he was in the dining room when he was still a summer, but opposite was a group of officers with orders and even the GSS (not one)!
        To his question: "Who is this?" were advised never, under any circumstances, to be interested in these people.

      Why write? what

      Why can't you write about those data and characteristics that are known to the "probable enemy" and which are NOT secret?

      Why "secret" open information from your own citizens, generating unnecessary rumors in society?

        Could you share a link to "open" information about Losharik?
        Not by "leaks" in the media, but by the real one.
        Do not offer a foreign one.

            This is written in the article.
            Is that true?
            Maybe yes.
            Or maybe not.
            But I can say that the crew ... well, 40 people ... Of these, 4 caperangs (well, or ten). And in the galley, for

        The media are now the most important deterrent and disinformation tool. Although they say that "the truth will emerge sooner or later," the relevance of truthful information and misinformation can greatly depreciate over time. In addition, people, not only as taxpayers, but also as patriots, should know about the exploits of testers and developers of the latest weapons and their importance for the security of their country.

          Is this exactly what they are holding back, not spreading? As for me, now almost all the media are doing their best to support the old assertion that there is no news in Pravda, and in Izvestia there is no truth, and the Internet is generally worldwide a trash heap of rumors, nonsense and other nasty things that are intensely hammered into the head. Therefore, I support the opinion of dad Mueller: "In our time, you can not trust anyone, sometimes even yourself. I can."

            It’s funny if it weren’t sad to tears. All the same, in reality, all sorts of Mullers, Gerings, Hitlers and Goebbels are not at all anecdotal "heroes".
            And in order to get rid of the mess in your head from conflicting information in the media, you just need to remember 3 main cause-and-effect postulates:
            1. The media is the main instrument of politics.
            2. Politics is a concentrated expression of economics.
            3. Economics is the ability to use life in the best possible way.
            In short, look who benefits.

    Eternal memory to the submariners who died the death of the brave rescuing a unique submarine, pushing out the civilian and battening down the hatches to the last fought with the fire .. Russia held on to such people, holds on and will hold on !!! hi
    And the recovery time, I think it's not worth chasing .. If we really restore, then taking into account all the shortcomings in full and with the latest modern domestic equipment ..!

        We'll catch up, this "losharik" was previously at the maximum autonomy in comparison .. And now it may be to go into silence altogether ... And look for him, where and what he is doing. hi

    And no one is confused by the constant emphasis on the integrity of the vessel and the reactor?
    Okay, the stainless steel reactor is not afraid of anything.
    But titanium is not very fond of unplanned heating. Yes, and even with all kinds of impurities in the air. Especially the welded seams!
