If it is K-159 the story of her sinking in August 2003 is in this link.
The article does suggest that a salvage attempt would have been made in 2004!
If your model isn't of K-159, there are other Russian K Class incidents recorded at the end of the article.

Is this the K-129, the Golf class salvaged by the CIA, using the GLOMAR EXPLORER, in order to gather intel on the advances of the Russians on SLBM and submarine technology?
Best regards from Lisbon,

As far as I know the US Navy/CIA filmed the memorial service they held for the recovered bodies of some of the Russian sailors and provided the soviets with a tape of the proceedings to show they had been accorded full military honours. Am I close or completely up the wrong tree here? If K 129 had a name I can't remember it. Hold on it's not K 19 is it, when she limped home.
