Bring Back That Practice Torpedo Or Let No Man Come Back Alive!

Admiral Al'fred Berzin, who last made an appearance on this blog with his reminisces about Cold War submarine encounters in K-184 vs. Guardfish has a very cool Livejournal page, too.

I don't know how the US Navy does it, but the Russian Navy apparently places a premium on retrieving spent practice torpedoes such as this one:



Admiral Berzin assures us that this is not an authorized manner of torpedo recovery, no matter HOW lost the torpedo retriever is:





And here is Hotel II SSBN K-178 demonstrating an alternative method of practice torpedo recovery back in 1989 (click for a magnified view):



Admiral Berzin offers a wealth of Cold War stories and more on his Livejournal page.

Don't know what the US does for practice torpedos, but I do know what the do for experimental ones. The are recovered at sea by helocopters and divers.

Just one little remark:
His correct last name Berzin, not Berezin..
