The crew of the diesel-electric submarine “Kolpino” of the Black Sea Fleet performed a test exercise on leaving the damaged submarine through a torpedo tube.

The event took place at the training complex (UTK) of the Black Sea Fleet submariners.

During the training, the submariners complied with the standards for putting on rescue equipment and worked out the exit from the torpedo tube using an individual breathing apparatus. In addition to the theoretical and practical readiness required for this exercise, the submariners improved the level of psychological readiness required to exit through the torpedo tube.

Also in the UTK pool, the submariners conducted a training session on boarding an inflatable liferaft PSN-10.

Trainings to evacuate personnel through a torpedo tube are one of the main methods of emergency escape from a submarine and are held regularly and in accordance with the fleet’s combat training plan.
