    If you can read Russian, follow the story here: http://airsoftgun.ru/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=111500
    I read the whole thread you linked to... most of the people have the same questions as I did: how are the ammo issues dealt with (the magazine is pretty clearly a 5.56 shape rather than a Russian calibre) and is this simply a weapon familiarisation exercise or not. It's not impossible for one person to use an M-4 in 5.56 ammo in the Alpha unit, but at least many other people share my scepticism.

    And what about the picture I shared with this soldier and his gun? The photo was taken at a shooting competition in Russia.

    I'm certain this man can have all the match grade ammunition he wants.

    Don't let nationalism confuse the issue. The photos show a Russian soldier from Alfa with an M4 style carbine.

    I defer identification of his rifle to someone else

    I do not know much about Armalites or Colts.

    Once again, why nobody will comment these?

    You get in trouble in Russia if you do? It is strating to be suspicious seriously

    I think the simpler explanation is people just dont know. There is almost no information around about these special purpose subs.

    They also do not appear to be purposed to launch big badabooms, so Freud didn't approve and made the sub uninteresting.

    No, you won't. It's just too much of the effort, apparently.

    Void summarized for me:
    The article you posted actually has almost no details. It is mostly an interview with the designer about what should be done about the current state of Russian shipbuilding and the like.

    He did say that their challenges in building a small submarine capable of long distance voyages was great. They had to use a titanium hull, a small nuclear reactor, make most of the machinery autonomous and separate from the crew, going so far as moving some like the electric motor out of the inner pressure hull and into the water between the inner and outer hull. But that is basically all of the technical detail there is in the article.

    Some photos from last year Bulava succesfull launch (IIRC one before the last). No Bulava photos unfortunately, but still I hope you'll enjoy them.
