    Any ideas what's going on here?

    A Trafalgar class with what looks very much like the SOKS sensor off the sail of an Akula Suspect

    I seem to recall reading that UK had their own system similar to SOKS but it would seem pretty odd to use the same rake angle, on the other hand where could they have gotten one from?
    From what I've seen Nerpa was delivered sans-SOKS, seems fairly unlikely that Russia would sell one?
    Severodvinsk & Boreis don't have obvious SOKS so maybe it's considered obsolete tech, or never actually worked?

    Edit: also since it was in the comments & I'd failed miserably to re-find it recently when I wanted to, this is a really good imgur album about the class

    On the last scene, the door has the pressure rating of the bulkhead and volume of the section .

    It is a door on the Kursk, it was on the bulkhead between the main section and the torpedo room (they forgot to close on of these as I remember)

    Anyone can read the pressure rating of the door under the damage/rubbish?

    It seems like 100 for me.
