    Smart move by Russia though, to Kalibrate the Caliphate...

    I just hope that section is not accessible by crew because that would be scary as hell
    *thump* thats the sonar on the left *thump* *thump* front of the pressure hull *thump* on the right.

    What's the story with this one, experimental test bed or something?
    Test of pumpjet propulsion but as far as I know otherwise a normal Kilo.
    But maybe we've uncovered the reason the repairs seem to be taking so long 'You can't leave. She won't let you.' Shocked


    Hard to be present when you have to be on call 24/7 in the Mediterranean to "kalibrate" jihadists in Syria...
    Thing is the first 4 only hung out off Syria for about a month before moving on to Sevastopol, these two must be close to 6mths.

    Well it's pretty obvious that they want to have cruise missile strikes available so those subs are parked in Tartus for the time being

    Once Syria cools down they will transfer them to Black Sea

    But I wouldn't be surprised if Navy ordered​ couple​ of brand new conventional subs specifically for Tartus down the road, same goes for surface ships

    Finally found visual confirmation the two have been docking in Tartous


    Edit: Hmm, doesn't seem to want to show, possibly doesn't like hotlink?

    Via Balancer Stary Oskol one of the new BSF boats is out in drydock, apparently work on the prop?



    Kilo props always look almost comically tiny relative to the fairly tubby hull.
