Description Extended Information
Easy Model EM37300 Russian Navy Kilo Class Submarine (1:700 Scale) "Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!"
- Admiral Farragut sailing aboard his flagsphip Hartford while entering Mobile Bay, Alabama, August 23, 1864

The Kilo class is the NATO reporting name for a type of military diesel-electric submarines that are made in Russia. The original version of these vessels is known in Russia as Project 877 Paltus (Turbot). There is also a more advanced version, which is known in the west as Improved Kilo and in Russia as Project 636. The Kilo will be succeeded by the Lada class submarine, which began sea trials in 2005.

The boats are mainly intended for anti-shipping and anti-submarine operations in relatively shallow waters. Kilo class submarines are capable of operating very quietly. Project 636, sometimes called by the US Navy "The Black Hole" for its uncanny ability to "disappear", is thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world.

Anechoic tiles are fitted on casings and fins to absorb the sonar sound waves of active sonar, which results in a reduction and distortion of the return signal. These Anechoic tiles help attenuate sounds that are emitted from the submarine, thus reducing the range of which the sub may be detected by hostile passive sonar.

Pictured here is a 1:700 scale replica of a Russian Navy Kilo Class Submarine. Now in stock!
