    It’s crazy how this jumps right into a commercial at the end aimed at fighting cyber crime.😂

                    it sounds like the inspiration for Hunt For Red Octobre. except in red Octobre the sub captain defected. The sub was typhoon class.

                                The animation is very inaccurate, soviet soldiers holding Thompson sub machine gun? Come on, show some accuracy. On that period of cold war the Soviets were using kalashnikov.

                                          Most likely the submarine had plans to help a new American president win the elections.

                                            This was the inspiration for the sub-swallowing supertanker in the Roger Moore Bond film, 'The Spy Who Loved Me'.

                                              An amazing story that I can't believe they never made into a movie yet. The interesting and disgusting part is that three newspapers found out about it possibly compromising the U.S. advantage during the cold war, however only the L.A. Times reported it. I guess they wanted to cover WW3.

                                                Wait so the submarine is still there right? So anyone could just go out there and pick it up?

                                                      When I first saw the title of the video, my first thought it was going to be about the event that inspired "Hunt for Red October."

The Soviet sub was hijacked by rouge-KGB agents to launch a nuclear strike against Hawaii. The sub and the location of the launch were selected to appear like a similar Chinese sub, and trigger a war between the US and China. But alas, it never happened. Because the launch sequence was incorrect, the self-destruct mechanism activated and blew-up the missile, causing the sinking. That is why there was radiation, a missile was destroyed. CIA pictures of the wreck would also show the missile-tube doors open! That is why the US needed to retrieve an old Soviet sub at such great expense: they had to see what was going on in that sub when it sunk. And don't believe they only retrieved the front piece of the sub - the CIA got the control room too.

                                                                      • Izzamil Faris Khairul Azizan
