The death of the "K-219" and the mysterious "Quakers"

"Pravda.Ru" often returned to the theme of the mysterious death of the Soviet nuclear submarine "K-219" in the Bermuda Triangle in 1986. But there was a caveat, writing which still did not raise a hand — was the fear, no matter how wrong. However, recent scientific publications confirm this version: "K-219" could have died from the effects of an unidentified underwater object.

This version is now more often heard in the specialized press (mainly English), and in Russia. In the not so long ago, held on one of the TV program about miraculous unidentified underwater objects quite openly talked famous admirals, former employees of the naval intelligence and security services.

That transfer has forced this author to raise record conversations with the untimely deceased famous Soviet submariner, Captain I rank by Nikolai Tushin, a former deputy commander of the brigade built nuclear-powered ships. In the 80 years of the last century, it was he who was part of a rather narrow circle of specialists of the Navy, who were admitted to the acceptance of the fleet of nuclear submarines, built in Severodvinsk at Sevmash.

On duty, he had to know all the nuances of underwater accidents that have occurred from time to time with our atomic submarine. That our very frank discussion took place after his retirement, at a time when little by little began to declassify most that neither is the secret mysteries of the Soviet ocean-going fleet. He's on duty was aware of all emergency incidents. True, he told me about the mysteries of mysteries rather sparingly and tactfully, apparently for fear of becoming a kind of source of unnecessary sensationalism. Submariners sensations do not like and only believe their own eyes and ears. Well, perhaps it's time to reveal some of the secrets of the Soviet.

So, is that an underwater object in a collision with whom died zatonuv at a depth of four kilometers, the strategic submarine "K-219" with two nuclear reactors, and 16 ballistic nuclear missiles on board, was miraculous, Z is not doubt. Incidentally, it was from him and then I heard what troubles endured Soviet (and American and British, and French) Atomic submarine from so-called "Quakers." He said that experienced sailors is quite serious about the talk of underwater "unidentified objects".

According Tushin, he, like many submarine commander, saw the ocean glowing balls and cylinders. Almost every diver a "cherished" story is. But it is not accepted then it was extended to these topics. You never know what to avtonomke dreaming? Moreover, that "the instruments" few recorded meetings with such objects.

About them, these croaking the whole ocean stealth, even now do not know almost nothing. What is this phenomenon also say no one — no one saw. They began to hear a few decades ago, when the submarine, especially nuclear, there was a more or less sensitive sonar equipment that could listen to the ocean in many sectors of sonar range.

In the 70's of last century, the so-called unidentified flying objects, "Quakers" were not seriously disturb the submariners. When the Navy Intelligence was even set up a special group to organize and analyze all unexplained phenomena occurring in the oceans. The officers, who obliged to collect information, went to the fleet, collecting all that somehow relates to the problem. There was even organized a series of special ocean expeditions. Parallel organized several American expeditions, hunting for "Quakers" (information about it, by the way, was leaked to the press in the last years).

Range "Quakers" has expanded from the Barents Sea to the Mid-Atlantic, including the one the Bermuda Triangle, which killed our atomic submarine "K-219". However, the version of the man-made origin of the mysterious underwater sounds was rather weak: even the wealthy United States, such costs can not afford it. Imagine how much you need to spend in order to ensnare what some speakers 'croak' stations and wire the entire ocean …

These mysterious objects doggedly pursued our (and not only ours) submarines, and the chase is accompanied by characteristic acoustic signals resembling the croaking of frogs, which is why, in fact, submarine and called them "Quakers."

A paradoxical situation: the creepy secret Soviet intelligence expedition came to the conclusion that "Quakers" — it's still kind of secret development of NATO, aimed at finding our submarines. The Americans, too, have studied in detail the mysterious phenomenon, with the same determination reported "up", it is — a top secret development of the USSR for the detection of foreign submarines. It is possible that if at that time to study this strange phenomenon combined efforts of scientists of the USSR and the USA, the problem would still be "split". But there was a "cold war" …

For those who actually heard the Quakers, created a lasting impression of awareness actions of unknown source of the mysterious sound. It might even seem that the Quakers, appearing from nowhere, tried hard to make contact. Judging by the continuously changing bearing, they circled around our submarines, changing the tone and frequency of the signal, as if invited to speak divers responding proactively to sonar "send" on board submarines

In fact, the Quakers themselves as such do not pose any threat to submarines. But another thing is that some kind of mania hydrophone appeared — they were afraid to intrude on the watch. They were afraid to go crazy from mysterious sounds "Quakers" …

According to Z's Tushino, which I heard for the first time seriously and not man-made, and the story of the objective reality of the existence of "Quaker", sometimes with some sailors even create the impression that the mysterious objects actively show their friendliness.

Famous Atomic experienced diver, admitted to commander's control of almost all the projects of the Soviet nuclear submarines, even admitted that we are dealing with some unknown underwater civilization to which scientists have not reached yet … And really — is still quite limited (at least the size of the planet) we explored the underwater world much less than a bottomless space!

This author, who has served in the submarine fleet sufficient number of years, one day, while still a lieutenant, himself once had a chance to hear the "Quaker." Invited his wheelhouse another lieutenant, commander of hydroacoustic and handed headphones: there really is something to "croak" (in other words you could not tell), and a specific, constant frequency. It was somehow not on myself psychologically felt that some sounds are emitted by the unknown animal.

And, as I remember, our boat was then at low speed at a depth of 250 meters even without changing course. Once surfaced 120 meters, "croaking" headphones have speakers stopped. Remember, too, that the commander told him not to record these sounds in the log: that is fed these "frogs", nothing new.

By the end of the 80s the Soviet secret research program "Quaker" was closed. First, money is falling apart in front of then USSR was not, and secondly, with the U.S. Gorbachev started a "big love", why do we "almost friends" to catch some "Quakers"? The most interesting is that the sounds of "Quaker" in the ocean, too, had disappeared by the time — as if someone suggested "unidentified" that they no longer interested. Since the 90's of the last century there have been no official reports of meetings with them.

Our group of scouts and scientists disbanded, and all of the materials and the development of on disappeared in the naval archives classified as "Top Secret". It remains unclear why so suddenly disbanded the group and what they have learned about the "Quakers"? Unfortunately, this information is still closed. Both here and in the U.S.. Only occasionally information about leaks to the press Only God knows how.

But back to the collapse of the Soviet submarine "K-219" in the Bermuda Triangle, not far from the land borders of the United States. As established by a special commission, and the performance of which Z was familiar in detail the cause of the accident was a kind of "accident" in the missile silo, which for some reason the seal, and the subsequent leak sverhyadovitogo superactive and rocket fuel rocket section. Then there was a fire, with all the consequences.

As a result of experimental tests, simulations and careful analysis, it was shown that it was not the fault of the crew. Was the impact of external factors. Why rocket crushed? How water gets into the body of missile silo? Official reports have pictures that prove that the body "K-219" runs deep groove. It was she who broke the seal of one of the missile silos. That she allowed seawater to crush water rocket!

Commission investigating the accident, made a preliminary conclusion that such "external factor" was a foreign submarine. But whisper the same committee members said, still something is not right … The agent Soviet intelligence reported that the after the death of the "K-219" no foreign submarine did not get in for repair on any NATO shipyard. But, faced with the Soviet, she had to get a lot of damage!

But voiced a different version then might well recognize crazy — well, they say, what are these Mysterious underwater objects? We and the UFO is more than enough public stir! About the fact that the deep groove on the case of "K-219" was not a metallic color, which was formed after a serious collision with another submarine, but a completely different (like the bluish paint poured), the Commission's report were made. "Just in case."

However, an experienced Captain Tushin was sure that the "K-219" sank just that mysterious force, but at the time this was not to say out loud, so the "anomalous" version was timidly voiced only years after the disaster. So unidentified underwater objects, like the "Quakers" and remain unsolved mysteries of the oceans. Well, the mysterious object of Bermuda Triangle wittingly or unwittingly (perhaps accidentally) was actually the killer of Soviet submarines …
