B39 Soviet Submarine

A bow to stern tour of the B39 Soviet Submarine using a Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens.

A Gallery of older images can be found at the end of this gallery.

One of a fleet of diesel electric submarines the Soviet Navy called “Project 641,” B-39 was commissioned in the early 1970s and served on active duty for more than 20 years.
300 feet in length and displacing more than 2000 tons, B-39 is among the largest conventionally powered submarines ever built.

Soviet Project 641 submarines, classified as “Foxtrot” by NATO, are essentially larger and more powerful versions of German World War II era U-boats.
Low-tech but lethal, she carried 24 torpedoes while she was on patrol-some capable of delivering low-yield nuclear warheads.
B-39 carried a crew of 78 and could dive to a depth of 985 feet before threatening the integrity of her nickel steel hull.
The submarine was acquired by western businessmen in the early 90's and was initially on display in Seattle. She has been part of the Maritime Museum of San Diego since 2005.

For photography a very difficult place to shoot because of the lack of light and space and many reflective surfaces. Tripods not allowed, so all images hand held.
