SadnessFebruary 1, 2010
These are images of one of the three existing Typhoon submarines – like the Red October, sort of. Over 500 feet long, 70 feet wide, with two pressure hulls running parallel. The images come from a Russian web site.
It’s sad, isn’t it? I know, they were the enemy – and could be again, that’s the beauty of it. But this was a magnificent piece of engineering. I’m glad they don’t have missiles pointed at us from these babies anymore, but I hate to see them just rusting away up there.
