      They are generally of a different mindset as submariners, it is good that they did not put the "armchair admiral" in command of the fleet.

        Good day, Yurich!
        Navigator, became commander, commander, commander in chief.
        Familiar with the PWB, went to sea, did not sit in cabinets. In a word - a submariner, a sailor. The orders are all deserved.
        I think that with his arrival at the High Command the attitude towards the reception of new ships will change. With imperfections and "trial operation", as it was under Chirkov, probably will no longer be.
        Significant purpose: the Arctic is waiting!

    10 years after graduation, he was appointed commander of a multipurpose nuclear submarine (from 1977 to 1984 ??) with a subsequent sharp rise. Ambiguous opinions. Let's hope that the fleet with this commander-in-chief will only win.

    "Honest man!" Guys. I apologize for my france, heifers get their tails! An honest man and an excellent officer - "Servant to the Tsar. Father to soldiers (sailors)"! True, it was somehow uncomfortable with Admiral Chirkov, but "the party (read Motherland and the Supreme Commander-in-Chief) said" must ", the Komsomol answered" yes "! (In the sense of taking command of the Fleet!).

    I am not personally acquainted with the admiral, but from the experience of participating in one of the scientific conferences, the new Commander-in-Chief, unlike the predecessor, is less compromise and more demanding in relation to representatives of industrial enterprises! I think it is precisely such a Commander-in-Chief that is now needed for the Navy.

    The fact that he is a submariner is good. And the fact that he performed the BZ in the 90s .. honor, respect and low bow. And he and all the submariners that I know.
    I hope he can handle this too.

    Commander-in-chief of a submariner is very good! By the way, amers also have a submariner assigned to a similar position ... a tendency towards the face.

    Chubais is also, in principle, a submariner, from the national welfare fund he spends billions and under water, then floats away and so many times laughing

    Well. And why do we need the position of Commander-in-Chief, competent, experienced officer? Really there wasn’t anyone who was a relative of the furniture factory - well, a very effective manager. A flaw, however.

    The worst thing was exactly that the navigator. When he was a zamkomdiv, at first he had a watch, then a commander with a chief officer, and then BC-1 from old memory. Intersected with him periodically, the last time already as with the division commander "animal".
