Agreed... I cant guarantee thats what your looking at, but if it was indeed a Russian sub that was spotted, you can bet your ass it was an Akula-Class... This isn't the first time a Russian sub has been spotted off our east coast this year.

Take a look at a different picture of an Akula without all that extra up top.

Yet you can still see the bow of the vessel because its sitting at an up angle, which obviously puts the stern deep in the water.
That's a pretty creative rendition of the photo. Looks two guys standing on a whale to me.

Does anybody realize that hes in about 30ft of water Acula class my azz. It's piping for the beach replenishment. If it was a sub, why would he poke his bow out of the water. Way too much television I think.

Maybe we couldn't find any mexicans to do the work so we are hiring russians? Hey Obama made it to the oval office.. ANYTHING CAN/COULD HAPPEN!!

America.... A place to be somebody.. As long as we don't have to give them welfare and food stamps they can hang out on the water. Whens the next NJPPB run.. You might have a new entry..

hey hey, I am not even saying that is a sub that your looking at... I am just trying to lay out a scenario with possibilities. And no I didnt even look at the water depth, but if you can tell water depth from a grainy crappy photo, thats pretty good. Piping sticking out of the water offshore like that, highly unlikely as is a Russian Nuclear submarine showing its face.

The chance a Russian sub even got past our attack fleet which is scattered in the coastal waters is also highly unlikely, I think your just looking at some camera mans wet dream with photochop and the grain filter.

about as unlikely as all the illegals driving their boats up onto sanibel and captiva islands down here in florida.
