1/700 Scale Plastic Russian Akula Class Submarine - Length: 6.5"
These models come already assembled and painted out of the box. There is nothing to do or needed other than take them out of the packaging and display them.
These models are plastic. The overall coloring and the details are very interesting, there are many grill marks accurately painted along with embossed hatches and panels.
The model rests on a display stand. The model is not permanently attached to the display stand.
This is certainly not a toy. It will not last long if played with. The box is labeled as not recommended for children under 14.
The box measures 7.5" x 3.25" x 3.25"
Project 971 Щука-Б (Shchuka-B, 'Shchuka' meaning "pike", NATO reporting name "Akula") is a nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN) first deployed by the Soviet Navy in 1986. The class is also known under the name Bars (meaning "snow leopard"). There are four sub-classes or flights of Shchuka, consisting of the original seven Akula Is, commissioned between 1984 and 1990; six Improved Akulas, commissioned between 1991 and 2009; one Akula II, commissioned in 1995; and one Akula III, commissioned in 2001. The Russians call all of the submarines Shchuka-B, regardless of modifications.
