Poland's Only Submarine Stops Firing
The blog notes that this is a Soviet-built submarine Orzel, which was commissioned back in 1986. All six 533-mm torpedo tubes of the submarine were out of order because they had not been used for a long time.
In addition, the external torpedo-loading device also became unusable, without which torpedoes cannot be loaded on board. Also, experts identified a malfunction in the Murena-E torpedo firing control system, which is responsible for recharging the devices from inside the submarine.
It is noted that on March 22, the Polish Navy announced a tender for the repair of all out of order equipment of the submarine, offering the performers 428 thousand euros for this. However, a week later, the competition had to be canceled due to the lack of applications from potential participants. On April 2, the tender was resumed, but its results are still unknown.
