      I'm glad that the boat is standing still. I was a kid, they took us on an excursion to the S-56. There were a lot of impressions, for some reason I remembered the torpedo compartment. I'm glad that they don't forget the Soviet military past, otherwise you know how we like to change priorities ... Yes, just a trip to the north is worth it. Do not run into the Japanese, go through the entire Pacific Ocean, which has never been quiet, then the Atlantic, where German submarines ruled, and this is all with the level of autonomy of navigation at that time. And people survived, and that's feat.Eternal glory to the heroes-submariners !!!!
