She was designed by Mikhail Petrovich Nalyotov as the world's first submarine minelayer, although due to construction delays the German UC submarines entered service earlier. The mines were stowed in two horizontal galleries exiting through the stern.Diving depth was 45 metres. She was ordered in 1908, launched in September 1912 (or early 1913, sources differ) and entered service in 1915. This submarine fought during World War I in the Black Sea Fleet. After the Russian Revolution of 1917 the boat was captured by the Germans and transferred to the British intervention force who scuttled the boat near Sevastopol to prevent capture by the Bolsheviks. The wreck was raised in 1935 and scrapped. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Bells".
