That's pretty cool. Essentially buying the nuc sub you once were a conscript on. Ain't capitalism great?

It was scrapped and he is buying the original, or parts of it anyways:

Mr Romanov has bought the main section of the submarine, including its conning tower which will now be painstakingly repaired.

Probly still got the sail all he has to do is repaint 701 on her n then he has K19 russian boats have a habbit of being re numberd, the white numbers on the hull denote its mission (did do up untill 1991).

he probably has another submarine same class ect just been told that it is K19.

I would love to own an old WW2 Uboat put it in my backyard and set it up as my home, i would have the control room as the living room, forward torpedo room as the bathroom. the officers mess cleared out to be the kitchen and the rear compartments as the bedrooms, sonar and radio room will be my computer room for when playing subgames - how realistic will that be! :P. The periscope would still stay but alot of everything else would be renovated. The conning tower hatch would be the way in and out. No windows, the persicope is the window.Yep i have it all visualise in my head. Now hoping one day it will be a reality.

Edit: the boat would either be an VIIC or IX
