Before you get your panties in a bunch, let’s take a closer look at what happened of the “coast” of Alaska on 1 JULY, 2019.
- On July 1st, 2019, the Russian submarine AN-12 suffered a casualty in the Northern Pacific. “Casualty” is NAVYSPEAK for something broke. It was an electrical fire.
- The AN-12 is a Belgorod class nuclear submarine. which is an Oscar 2 Class missile sub (like Kursk) but has been converted to act as a mother ship to midget subs in ‘special missions’. Like USS Halibut and NR-1 combined. It’s a spy sub.
- Russian submarines break all the time. Think “Kursk”. They made a movie about the K-19 that the Russian sailors nicknamed “Hiroshima”.
- Although capable of carrying torpedoes, it probably wasn’t. Even the US Navy doesn’t arm their spy subs. The reason being that it should be lost with all hands rather than reveal the mission.
IN MY HUMBLE OPINION
A Russian spy sub broke and they limped home to fix it. Since it had to surface to vent smoke and fumes, they have shit on their face for being caught. There was no battle. There are no survivors in a sub fight no matter what Hollywood says. In stories made public in the book, Blind Mans Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage, Soviet and American submarines collided a lot. That’s how subs get damaged and limp home. Maybe…..that’s what happened. It is a tragedy that 14 sailors died but they probably saved their ship.
Please note her snorkels are up and running. This leads me to believe that they scammed the reactor.
