I think I have discovered a new sport disease art: photography gray submarines against the gray sky and the gray (or rather, lead) of water ... So if the photo quality is not optimal happened - I do not blame :) 3. With PL-189: view from the Lieutenant Schmidt Embankment. In the background sprava- icebreaker "Moskva" on vacation. More to the right, very far away - another museum ship - "Krasin":

The museum has its own team, almost totally made ​​up of former submariners. They help visitors to go down, give them (visitors) commands to be executed immediately, as well as carry out them trips. When I went downstairs, I was given the first team to buy a ticket, and then I was sent directly to the feed (torpedo) compartment - for exploring the museum. As I realized later, I was lucky, because I decided to visit the submarine on a weekday, and I almost had to push inside the submarine with other suffering, or to queue up at the pier. 4. So here it is, the compartment №7, stern-torpedo. He - compartment refuge. Well visible flat door (hatch) connecting 6 and 7 compartments. This door is designed only been a slight pressure:

11. The control station right main motor (GGED). New stations have been much easier to previously used shields with knife-switch:

The history of the submarine project. As I said, the design was the most used technical solutions of German submarines recent series, including a device for operating a diesel engine under water (PRD). This series became the most massive submarine in the Soviet Navy.There were built 215 submarines, and 21 more submarines of the project 613 were built under license in China. Initially the boats of this type provided for the installation of artillery arms, first one twin 25 mm anti-aircraft machine-2M-8, and then also paired 57- mm universal tool SM-24-mill, but in 1956 they were taken off the boats already built - as a weapon for self-defense, they become virtually useless. 12.Go into the bay №5, diesel. It is separated from the 7th and 6th compartments "real" door and a "real" bulkhead capable of withstanding pressures up to 10 kg / cm:
