RUSSIAN SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES ARE GETTING HIGH-TECH MINI SUBS

The Russian Special Operations Forces (SOF) will be receiving an advanced infiltration capability in the form of futuristic mini subs.

According to a source from the Russian government, “the Main Directorate of Deep-Water Research of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed interest in the apparatus, and it considers these bathyscaphes [which is a manned submersible vehicle] as a means for conducting special underwater operations.” He added that the Russian Navy intends to allocate at least two mini subs to each of its three battle fleets (Black Sea, Northern, and Pacific).

According to the specifications and information provided by the Russian Ministry of Defense, the mini subs will be able to dive up to 1.6 miles beneath the surface. They will have a crew of three operators, although Russian government officials didn’t specify if the submersible will be able to carry additional personnel. The mini subs, which will be shaped like a ball, will be constructed out of a transparent layer of acrylic and titanium. Furthermore, an electric engine will provide enough energy to operate the vessel for a minimum of 24 hours. Finally, the mini subs will be designed so they can be launched from any military or civilian vessel in the Russian inventory. The underwater vessels are expected to be operational by 2022.
