Russian Sub's Interior Video Clip
The video is presented as a look at the interior of a real-deal Russian nuclear submarine. While both audio and video quality are meager, the short clip from Russia Today boasts: You normally have to be an enlisted seaman with unquestionable loyalty to see this.
Before watching the YouTube below (h/t The Sub Report), let me remind you to be very observant of what little is being shown. I have an oolie for you. I know what some of you must be thinking (depending on when you served): What's an oolie?
If you were not a submariner, don't recall, or still want to know, you can find out what an oolie is here: Naval Terminology, Jargon and Slang FAQ Part 2 - N through Z.
The Oolie: What design difference did you note between this sub and U.S. subs? Be sure to state the elapsed time (shown in the clip itself) at which any observation was made. Torpedomen may have somewhat of an advantage, here, but my guess is that someone will know the reason for a differing design, too.
No need to be embarrased, you can use an anonymous alias like Lt. Mad Dog always does. Here's the Inside a Russian Nuclear Submarine YouTube:
Russian 'nuclear' submarine...
The clip invokes several, more obvious oolies. Examples: Is that cluttered mess really in a nuclear submarine?; What evolution is being shown?; What class of submarine is that?; and for naval information aficionados like the Armchair Admiral, what's the name or hull number of the submarine?
Good luck! Until a later posting about this.
