Recently, a Russian military website exposed the inside of Russian Northern Fleet’s 971 (NATO calls it Akula) nuclear attack submarine, as in photographs, which show the 971 nuclear attack submarine’s officers room and soldiers room, kitchen, dining room, shower room and other interior layout.
Akula nuclear-powered attack submarines (No. 971 (U, V, M), Russian name: Щука-Б, Shchuka-B, NATO calls it Akula) is developed in times of the Soviet Union. It’s one of Russian navy’s most powerful attack submarines. The word ‘Akula’ means shark in Russian.
Akula’s pressure-resisting hull is made of titanium alloy. Ti Alloy for submarine can ensure the safety of ‘Akula’ in 650m underwater. When the U.S. Navy found, the first time, that "Akula" submarines can dive to 650 meters underwater, they were flummoxed by the information. Even today, most of the anti-submarine weapons and nuclear submarines can reach the depth of no more than 500 meters.
