    Hello everyone - sorry I did this posting out of order.

    I've joined this forum because I am finding it very hard to find information about Russian ships' crews are organized and operate.

    Reading THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER years ago piqued my interest and was the only thing I could find at the time that showed how Soviet ships were organized. But I am not sure how accurately that book reflected how Soviet-era naval routines were but it was the starting point of my interest in Russian naval life aboard ship and how the ship are run.

    Any assistance in this would be much appreciated. I started a thread under the RUSSIAN NAVY forum.

    welcome Smile

    I seem to remember some retired Soviet sailors went to see hunt for red october, and they thought it was a comedy...

    I believe they described it as being run like a pirate ship.

    You will have problems finding out about how Soviet ships operate here because AFAIK there are no Soviet or Russian sailors here.

    Best of luck. Smile
