Caught in fishing nets...on FNC...

Its a mini, only 7 on board. Japanese vessel in route for possible rescue. Enough O2 for 120 hours, still communicating with surface.

It's all the USN's fault.

US Navy, Britian and Japan are enroute to try and rescue.

I hope they succeed.

This time the Russians requested our assistance.

Russian Deep-Sea Vessel Stuck, Trapping 7

Friday, August 05, 2005

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia — The U.S. Navy (search) will send an unmanned rescue vehicle to help efforts to save a Russian mini-submarine stuck on the floor of the Pacific with seven crew members on board, a Russian navy (search) spokesman said Friday.

Capt. Igor Dygalo said in remarks broadcast on Russian television that a U.S. plane will fly to a base in San Diego to pick up a robotic rescue vehicle and then deliver it to the accident site off the Kamchatka Peninsula (search).

The Russian navy said the seamen had enough air to survive for one more day.

Don't know why I found that so funny. Must have been the navigator's fault. MJD

Only so much vodka you can stuff in the torp tubes.

I would like to see a successful rescue for once. I don't understand how the Russians can even get somebody on a sub anymore.

Hopefully they can get them out. It would suck being trapped on the sea floor knowing that your supply of air is dwindling and rescue your only hope for survival.

you ever notice how despite the fact that they are no longer calling themselves communist they still act the same way they did during the cold war years,always to proud to ask for help untill it becomes to late.

Agree. Those things are ALL death traps. It's only a matter of when, not if.

[DUh] But what about the poor dolphins that get caught in the nets? [/DUh]

Sailors who go to sea on submariens are different in all Navies, they just are…

Hope they get out this time, the RN sent it's LR5 DSRV to do a rescue from the Kursk, but the Russians said niet for too long, it turns out there were survivors after the initial explosion.


ANdy



The Navy tried to recruit me to be nuculear engineer on for submarines.

Ain't no way I would get in a sub.

Given the amount of hours "at depth" that these guys log, I won't hesitate to speculate that it's safer than flying.

To be fair, this is not a combat submarine.
It's some sort of small, experimental submerisble.
I would think that blowing your tanks in a big tube would get you out of any fishing net.

The only reason being the insane amount of training/drilling we were required to do and the extremely conservative design measures taken during equipment design.

Come on, can we hold the jokes until these guys are (hopefully) safe?

I hope to God that they are brought to the surface with time to spare.
