  • Fire on 'top secret Russian mini-submarine' kills 14 sailors.

    The Russian Defence Ministry says 14 sailors have been killed in a fire on a navy submersible, with media reporting the stricken vessel is the country's most secret mini-submarine.

    this fire has spawned a rather hilarious conspiracy theory.

    the sub in question supposedly was intercepted by a US sub, they then engaged in a fight sinking the US sub, and the fire being a result of battle damage...

    just ignore that it would probably be close to impossible for a damaged sub to travel 2700 miles from US waters to severomorsk after firing on a US sub...

      .Sounds a lot like our NR-1, crated to tap into seafloor communications cables.

      I found Putin's comment amusing:
      "This is not a regular vessel ... it's a scientific research vessel. It's a highly professional crew," he said.
      IOW, the usual nuclear submarine crew is not highly professional?

        They are now saying that the fire was in the batteries. I thought the point of a nuclear sub was it didn't need batteries
