I dont know if anyone has posted this as of yet. I found this while doing some random surfing.

This is telling somewhat to those who know a bit about construction details. Pretty obvious that there was a foreward end explosion.

I would like to know what a frisker reads in various areas of this boat..both foreward and aft ends. Also in an around the missle tubes.

If I remember correctly, the sub was cut underwater and the forward part is still there ... or maybe not. It is quite possible that it was brought up separately, or they bombed the debris after. According to what i read about the subject, it was probably an accident during the testing of the secret Shkval torpedo.

Yes,

That is pretty much what I was given to know by the reports. That the foreward end was removed or cut away. I suspect that there may have been something very unstable about the foreward end that they did not want to risk bringing it up with the rest of the boat.

Possible that they brought it up later...or destroyed it.

Nonetheless it is obvious that something bent all the metal and bulkheads in the foreward end that was removed. It had to be a considerable explosion to do such.

If you look carefully in one of the pictures you can see a number of hull penetrations to the side of the hull. I suspect that these are for cables running through the side to the outer hull..electrical cables..probably for the missles Very noticable.


Thanks,

They used a new invention (ATT) using a chain, latten with diamond bits that was on a sort of conveyor that mimicked a band saw. I saw a video documentary of the Salvage of the Kursk which was very interesting. They removed the cone to reduce the weight of the lifting balloons while keeping the majority of their primary components in tact.

Hopefully this was a wake up call to the Russian Navy.

After the accident, it took them several days to get anyone on scene with rescue capability. The US Navy had DSRV Mystic on a C-5 Galaxy ready to fly within hours of the accident, but the Russians didn't request international assistance until it was too late. There were over 20 survivors. Some people in the rear of the engine room had time to write final letters in the dark before likely asphyxiating.

Unlikely that it was a Shkval torpedo.

It was more likely the hydrogen peroxide they use in there older torpedoes.
100% hydrogen peroxide is very dangerous. In contact with some metals it turn into hydrogen and oxygen and is very explosive

There are also some pictures in this thread, where you can see a hole on the side. It looks like a torpedo has entered the Kursk from the outside...

wE therefore commit his body to the deep, to be turned into corruption, looking for the resurrection of the body, (when the Sea shall give up her dead,) and the life of the world to come, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who at his coming shall change our vile body, that it may be like his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.

 


Its both impressive about the strength of the Russian Subs and the abject failure of thier military and political leadership to save those aboard who survived the inital disaster but not the berurocratic bungling after.
