учитывая, что начало 90-х было периодом практически неописуемой открытости в поисках продаж на Запад...
ладно, 20 лет я еще проживу.
For example, one version, called the "Nelma" (Минеев, судя по всему, человек с юмором), is an excursion submarine capable of making one-day underwater trips to a depth of 100 meters
in off-shore waters of seas and oceans. Its attractive salon complete with air-conditioning can take 40 passengers in comfortable seats by
port-holes, offering a view of the fascinating underwater world. There is also a steward and excursion guide, as well as a buffet and toilet
facilities. The strong hull, the duplicated systems guarantying movement, submergence-surfacing and operation, the perfect equipment for navigation and communications, and also the set of efficient emergency and life-saving devices, ensure that the "Nelma" conforms to the safety
standards required by the Maritime Registers. Another version comprises two-berth cabins, which makes it possible to extend the duration of
the excursion to six or seven days with a maximum of twelve passengers.
Another project at the "Piranha" base has been called the "Researcher", as this submarine is intended for ecological, oceanographic and geological research on the shelf, study of potential new cable and pipe line routes on the sea bed, the collection of rock samples, drilling, search for submerged
objects, and filming at a depth of up to 150 meters. In addition, the "Researcher" can assist the work of divers at depths of up to 60 meters. Retaining all the finest qualities of their military double, the peaceful "Nelma" and "Researcher" have acquired, thanks to the efforts of Y. Mineev's designers, a number of new features, enabling them to be used most effectively to tackle various commercial undertakings. At the same time their cost and production period are minimal, because they have been designed with the existing basic military submarine and available technological and production capacities. The peaceful version of the "Triton" needs no alterations. In each particular case it is assembled according to the nature and specific features of the tasks which it has to perform. It can be used to inspect and repair underwater pipelines and structures, study the sea bed, gather pearls and carry out rescue operations.
