pometablava said:While reading Steven Zaloga's "The Kremlin's Nuclear Sword" I found another interesting ship which is absent from my books: Project 11570 (NATO: Sadko). The 11570 role was to reload the 941 Akula SSBN with R-39 SLBM at sea. My Google search yields neither info not drawings/pictures.
Can anybody post some info and/or picture?. Is that a unbuilt design or not?
