Russian nuclear attack Submarine 1986Kit
incorporates a double hull system that increases the strength reserve and is able
to dive deeper than any other modern SSN. It is the quietest Russian nuclear attack
submarine; the noise radiated by the Akula-II class is comparable to that of last
versions of the American Improved Los Angeles class.
The distinctive "bulb"
or "can" seen on top of the Akula's rudder houses its towed sonar array,
when retracted.All Akulas are armed with four 533 mm torpedo tubes which can use
Type 53 torpedoes or the SS-N-15 Starfish missile, and four 650 mm torpedo tubes
which can use Type 65 torpedoes or the SS-N-16 Stallion missile. These torpedo
tubes are arranged in two rows of four tubes each. Improved Akulas and Akula IIs
have an additional six 533 mm torpedo tubes mounted externally, however it is
unclear whether these are fully functional external tubes, or if they are only
capable of launching Mines and decoys. The external tubes are mounted outside
the pressure hull in one row, above the 'Normal' Torpedo tubes, and can only be
reloaded in port or with the assistance of a submarine tender. The 650 mm tubes
can be fitted with liners to use the 533 mm weaponry. The submarine is also able
to use its torpedo tubes to launch mines.
