A joint expedition of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Geographical Society discovered a Soviet submarine of the "K" type in the Barents Sea

24

Specialists of the Northern fleet Together with the Russian Geographical Society, as part of the expedition, they discovered in the Barents Sea a Soviet submarine of the "K" type, which had perished during the Second World War. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.

As noted, the alleged place of death of the Soviet submarine was determined from the stories of local fishermen, who drew attention to a certain object at the bottom, to which fishing nets were clung. A logistics support vessel "Elbrus" SF arrived at the scene, which assessed the bottom relief and helped to find the submarine.



It was determined that in the area of ​​the Bantos-A minefield set by the Germans in 1942, there is a Soviet submarine of the K (Katyusha) type at the bottom. The sub's hull is divided into three parts. According to preliminary information, it was blown up by a German mine, after which its own ammunition detonated. The number of the submarine has not yet been determined, this will be dealt with a little later.

It is noted that the Katyusha was found while searching for two M-type submarines (Malyutka) M-122 and M-175, which were killed in the area in 1942 and 1943. At the moment, their whereabouts have not been established. Last week, an allegedly American Boston bomber, supplied to the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease, was discovered in the Barents Sea. The remains of the aircraft are at a depth of 25 meters not far from the coast.

Recall that the joint expedition of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Geographical Society called "Remember the War" takes place in several stages and lasts from February to September.

      They are doing a great job. This is a common grave of sailors, and not just a boat.

        And who in Russia does not comply with the law on marine burials? Do not touch, just pushed it in, take it off.

          Two dives have passed, the boat was qualified by type K, the radio antenna is powerful for this class, there are many fishing nets, the crew is supposedly 10 officers, 20 foremen, 37 sailors. Mass grave and you are joking. They will dive in for more details.

            And what has it got to do with mockery. The man wrote which boats were missing. I asked why he wrote this, because his comment can be interpreted in different ways, or rather, each in its own way. It is clear that if the boat is identified by the index, then the work is underway. If we are to write about the missing boats of this series, then write the total number, and separately for each of them ... and not this is the reduction of the numbering.

            Do you need not 2, but 22 dives to determine the boat number? So the bodies and SOULs of the sailors will bother ... negative

          yes at the same as to go for bread))) although who of these divers thinks, let them drown ... depth? weather? how far from the coast? resources? if near the shore and the depth is up to 60m, semi-pro amateurs can dive. if deeper and further, then either the Russian Geographical Society or the warriors. and again it is necessary that the resources have been allocated. and to clarify the number on a boat torn and entangled in nets for not half an hour. if you are lucky with the numbers of the guns, or maybe paint residues on the wheelhouse can sometimes be

      The ships sailed along the route of the first Lend-Lease convoy "Dervish".
      Due to the large number of networks, the classification was made by fragments.
      The expedition is searching in the zone of jurisdiction of the Russian Federation. That is, the "Malyutki" may not be found.

      All the same, it is good that Shoigu S.K. and the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation and the President of the Russian Geographical Society in one person. It's easier to agree on all sorts of nuances. After all, they are doing really great

      A little internet search identifies this submarine as K-2. In 1942, the Northern Fleet lost 2 submarines of the K-K-2 type with mines and K-23 as a result of a strike by ships and aircraft. http://arcticwar.pomorsu.ru/sea/arcticwar2000/platonov.html

          Unfortunately, no. Very often boats are not found where they were considered "lost", people still tried and fought for life, and not just "folded their hands" ...
