SUBMARINE B-413

The submarine B-413  (or NATO’s Foxtrot) is a unique museum vessel. This is the only submarine in Russia and one of a few in the world that belongs to the pre-atomic period. Moreover, she is preserved in original. Strength hull and outer casing, superstructures, all main and auxiliary mechanisms, equipment and armament are the same as they were when the submarine was retired from the Navy.

The History of the Russian Undersea Fleet exposition is currently located on board.
