September 02, 2009. Pictured: Mikhail Puchkov preparing his submarine for the test underwater trip in the waters of the yacht club in the suburbs of St.Petersburg. Many russian `nouveau riche`s (new rich russians)can envy Russian Captain Nemo Mikhail Puchkov, the designer and owner of the only personal submarine in Russia ; as personal as just personal computers or personal cars can be... Puchkov`s mini-submarine have been built as a do-it-yourself project.The very idea of building a personal submarine came to him in 1979 in Afghanistan (the country where there is no ocean, sea , or even any deep river!!!! ) where he used to serve as a Red Army military man - tankist .Being eighteen years old ordinary Soviet guy from the city of Ryazan Mikhail was dreaming to join the Soviet Navy but the `Soviet Motherland` sent him strait to hot Afghanistan to support the puppet goverment of Afghanistan. (quotation)Mikhail says: `i started thinking of building a submarine in late 1979 in the Afghan city of Kandahar when during the night duties sitting inside the hot tank was dreaming of sea trips,i started thinking about the parts and details of construction and design of the would be sub. To build the submarine it took him about 20 years, working at night after returning from his factory job. Puchkovís mini-submarine weights 2,300 kilograms (5,060 pounds), five meters (17 feet) long and 1.2 meters (4 feet) wide. It has two benzine engines and electronic navigation system and can dive as deep as 30 meters, the speed of the sub is 8 knots with 2 persons on the board. The interesting thing is that Mikhail is constantly working (for about 20 years) on improving and perfecting his submarine. So now Mikhail Puchkov`s model navigates various Russian waters spooking the local KGB authorities as they guess he can cross the russian border driving his mini-submarine and go abroad without any permission or visa, when he just built his sub KGB even suspected him of being a spy but could not find any evidence to prove it. Soviet military experts with big stars on the shoulders named him `genius` as his submarine whose body was made of plastics was not seen to radars. Mikhail designed and built his sub himself only and it is the smallest submarine in Russia, officially registered as a boat by Russian boat Registry and it has got itís own personal number and name. Potentially, Mikhail can now make an underwater trip from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Finland and back without any stops, and he can go as fast as 8 knots. In future Mikhail would like to use his submarine for underwater research of the Blatic sea including Scandinavian area of the Baltics. After the end of all necessary underwater tests Mikhail plans and dreams to cross the Atlantic Ocean with his submarine and he wants to take his wife with him.
