tunguska said:On this forum, similar pics are showed like model of Kursk internal hull in order to modelling the explosion
Firefly said:It does seem to have influences from wester designs. Given the anti-surface load I guess this is rather a Oscar type " carrier killer" than an attack sub?
flateric said:because we had previously some discussion with one of those who makes those models
for example, 'watchers' from FSB and Sevmash Security Dept. still demand to remove any details of launch tubes covers and rear stern planes "winglets" on Project 941 Typhoon models - while NG shoots dozens of hours footage of one of Typhoon being scrapped with details going as far as reactors' compartments
Granay and Borey models authenticity in the case, I suppose, are self-explanatory
"I feel a shame, when I asked to make two-screw Borey models to be presented to VIPs that have just returned from the shop floor with the real one that has one pumpjet" - something like this

Russia on Tuesday launches a new nuclear-powered multipurpose attack submarine after a short delay caused by technical reasons, the Sevmash shipyard said.
"It is the newest generation of the Russian submarine fleet, which rightfully meets the demands of the 21st century," said Vladimir Pyalov, chief designer of the Malakhit design bureau.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev arrived in the port of Severodvinsk to attend the official float-out ceremony.
Commissioning of Severodvinsk-type nuclear-powered submarines will significantly enhance combat capabilities of Russian Navy, reported RIA Novosti citing Vladimir Pialov, director and general designer of Malakhit design bureau (the project developer).
"This new generation of Russian submarine fleet meets standards of 21st century", Pialov said commenting SSGN Severodvinsk to be launched at Sevmash shipyard.
According to expectations, President Dmitry Medvedev will attend the launching ceremony of lead sub Severodvinsk. He is also about to inspect salvage tug Zvezdochka.
In contrast to 4-gen SSBNs (Yury Dolgoruky armed with SLBM Bulava), weapons of SSGN Severodvinsk have already passed all trials.
"Those are long-range cruise missiles", said Pialov not specifying the missiles' features due to classified information.
He only pointed out that those missiles were capable to hit sea and land targets at significant distances.
