Retro Moments: The Submarine


The Tango class submarine U-434 (B-515) in the Hamburg harbor:
“…The submarine B-515 now renamed U-434 was build at the Krasnoe Sormovo shipyard in Gorki in 1976. It was placed into the service of the Soviet North Sea fleet based in Severomorsk near Murmansk and remained in service until 2002. The U-434 was used as espionage submarine and was active during the Cuba crisis, performed spy missions on the US East coast and patrolled the Soviet territorial waters. In 2002 it was bought by the U-boat museum in Hamburg and towed from Murmansk to Germany…” – Internet-Info
