Big new Red boat

Perhaps that nappy it is wearing is hiding kit for a towed array sonar? I notice the rudder is placed forward and well clear.

crazy ivan!

Cracking movie that........I've only been in submarine once.....when I was a baby bunting.....I spent a day under the waves on Orpheus.....back in the day. I was told it was part of my training.....although I failed to see the relevence.....as they didn't have a flagdeck.

As an ex-slumberiner, my missues loves watching that film with me, despite Mr Connery's "Let them Shing", unconvincing rusky.

I'd be telling her "That's not right!" and "That's rubbish!" and "Range 300 fu***ng yards??? 5 Miles would be considered 'close'".

Yeah - she really loves watching that with me.

Love those 'O' boats. I was on nuke's but I did help refurbish inside the tubes on H.M.S. Onyx once using a pneumatic paint/rust remover tool (the multi-pin type). Talk about noisy! H & S would have kittens about that nowadays.

True English is of course, accentless.

Of course it isn't, with the possible exception of others who speak 'true English' whatever that is. I would imagine someone from Chicago or Adelaide would detect an accent in 'true English'.

*sarcasm mode in temporary suspension* I understand that it easier for a Scot to speak Russian than an English accented speaker due to the 'rolling of the R's' (amongst other things within the accent). May be crap of course, but with my limited understanding of Russian it does ring true to me. *sarcasm mode resumed*

TRUE!! And any other language with rolling Rs or words with a ch as in loch. Spanish for example! A Spanish 'J' is a Scottish 'ch'.

Every day a schoolday heh?

At least Sam Neil made the effort..................A kiwi with a Russian accent..........as for rolling of the R's......it's just the way you walk, Guzzler.

Russian is just English backwards.
