Russian sub lost in 1915 found!

Recommended Posts

Akula (Shark) a pioneering Russian sub built before WW I under the Tsar and lost on a combat cruise in the Baltic Sea in 1915, cause unknown, has now been found. Am sure we have some sub buffs out there.

If you need something bigger and more modern, will the huge Japanese marvel the I-400 do?

Isn't that the sub they towed back to Pearl after the war? It's been many decades since I read a book by the guy in charge of the sub during the tow (it was one chapter of his book IIRC). As I recall, the sub was a leaky piece of [crud] and barely made it there, even under tow. And he implied it was more of a danger to the crew than to the USN.
