When at last it dawned on the fleet commanders that some catastrophic disaster had caused the Kursk to plunge to the bottom, twenty three of the submarine 8767 s crew had sought refuge in the rear section, confident of rescue. No one has satisfactorily explained why these men didn 8767 t use the escape hatch (the boat lay in relatively shallow waters) but the fact remains, they sat in total darkness for two days, writing notes to loved ones until the air regeneration plant failed, caught fire and filled their compartment with lethal fumes. What makes this disaster more tragic and memorable is the fact British and Norwegian navy rescue teams were prepared to help but denied the opportunity until it was too late!
8775 It 8767 s dark here to write, but I 8767 ll try by feel. It seems like there are no chances, 65-75%. Let 8767 s hope that at least someone will read this. Here 8767 s the list of personnel from the other sections, who are now in the ninth and will attempt to get out. Regards to everybody, no need to be desperate. Kolesnikov. 8776
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.
What do the Thresher and Scorpion have to do with Kursk? If you are insinuating that they were lost and left you are mistaken. Both wreck sites were located and mapped. The cause of Thresher is known and resulted in changes in . fleet operations. The cause of Scorpion is still debated but several plausible reasons are suspected. If you are insinuating that the . doesn 8767 t have the technical knowhow or will to do a recovery, you are also incorrect. Who recovered the sunken Russian Golf II missle boat off of Hawaii? and that was how many years ago?

A very sad day, after many years serving in submarines the photos are very grim indeed.
When sailors are in dire jeopardy we all act as one and I offer my hand to all the families and friends of the crew and hope they are able to find peace.
Well, I live in Taiwan, and I must declare, Taiwan does not belong to the Red China, but the people who live on it
Shkval torpedoes were filled with clay, dummies. Usually they would have had multi kiloton nuclear warheads
No way they could have caused this damage

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.
