…I had fun. Some dorking around in photoshop to take a break hhaah
Can’t stop listening to Navigator by Funker Vogt ksajldsajaskld
so YAY SUBMARINES.
I decided to drop one of my classes and it’s like OH GOD I CAN FINALLY BREATHE AGAIN haahaahahha geez.
From right to left: Prizrak (Shchuka-B/”Akula” class), Gorbun (Delta IV) and my K222 guy whom hasn’t yet been named becasue I haven’t found anything fitting yet
Someone already asked here about project 941 Typhoon, it's not interesting to look to project 705K Alfa, because she is very similar to 971 Akula, so, maybe any ideas about deep diver 685 Mike?
Hmm! Man I love all of these - I should just do a page at some point with a variety of submarine creatures, haha! Though I've already uploaded quite a few new ones. For drawing, I look for ones though that are visually more unique from each other since while you and I can tell them apart, the average person would be more interested in seeing that visual variety of designs. Things like the S-80 ("Whisky-class") with external missile fittings is a great candidate for "weird," and interesting oddballs like the NR-1 (whose missions are still very much kept under wraps!)
I normally don't do requests but if there is one sub you really like, I could do a quick doodle of one - because I'm definitely a fan
It's fastest in the world project 661 K-222 Anchar/Papa (44,85 knots);
It's a series of subs project 705K Lyra/Alfa with fastest acceleration speed (acceleration from 0 to 41 knots — about 1 minute);
Biggest in the world series of subs project 941 Akula/Typhoon;
Biggest immersion depth (1027 meters) project 685 Plavnik/Mike
By the word, K-222 not so small sub. for comparison: K-222 is 107 meters long, anyone of 705K family — only 82 meters.

And if we speaking about subs we can remember (it's an idea, not request) oldest ship still in service with any navy excluding honorary commissioned ships — Kommuna-class salvage vessel — en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kommuna-…
Hell they knew whenever a sub was leaving port and could even triangulate their position!! And yeah the Russians went for speed rather than stealth but eventually realized how silly it is to have screw cavitation XD
Ohios rock!! Though I'm a sucker for Russian stuff :U the Typhoon is an insane feat of engineering...and then Akula/Shchuka-B, that was the first sub that beat SOSUS once spies informed the Soviets that their subs were being tracked, LOL!
I've gotten to see a Virginia class in person! That was cool :U nuuuuukes! But yeah I like my rattley old Russian & German subs XD
