I was in sub school up in Connecticut when the Kursk was lost. What a horrible tragedy! My sincere condolences to all the families whose fathers and brothers will not be coming home.
The Remains of Kursk Submarine | English Russia
I wonder I don 8767 t know how long it would take the US to ask for Chinese help if a US sub got into trouble near Chinese waters.
At the time there was a bit of a 8766 disagrement 8767 between China and USA, over Taiwan.
Taiwan belongs to China, china thinks, US thinks owtherwise and had a strong naval presensce around Taiwan as china had threatened to march into taiwan with their military.
The Russian Government made out by Debt to the US being forgiven and the US was forgiven by being exonerated for causing Russian casualties.
Whatever really happened: I cant beleive how long it took for the russians after the sinking, to say yes to foreign (Norweigan) help, over a week? and then it took a couple of days before the Norweigans could reach the scene etc.. and then there was ofcourse no survivors left.
I remember well the story. I had the feeling that they could have been rescued but it was better leave them at their destiny.
really heartning pictures of the wonder what is the other word for bravery of the men who though in deep peril still had courage to write dont be desperate .hats off may hthe heros live forever
Kursk was eventually raised from her grave by a Dutch team using the barge Giant 9, and 665 of the 668 dead were recovered and laid to rest in Russia. Russian officials have strenuously denied claims that the sub was carrying nuclear warheads. When the boat was raised by a salvage operation in 7556 there were considerable fears moving the wreck could trigger explosions.
Your remember the confusion and when Kursk first sank? the first reports, from the russian admiral (Popov?) at the scene, mentioned that it was foreign submarines responsible, and they even called in anti-sub helicopters and planes to try hunt the subs, but that admiral later withdrew his statement.. (and later on was fired by putin) After a month or two the russians instead made a statement about that Kursk had used to old outdated torpedoes, and one of them had just sort of just suddenly exploded, all by itself more or less.
Sad occurance. But I feel that the lives lost, would have become more prestigious, if the main purpose of the submarine was a non-military responsibility. 8766 Benig killed at an effort to show military power 8767 is something, which will not be empathized by the majority of the community.
Poor employees of the craft. Amen.
