Can anyone identify this Ex: Russian submarine seen in a back water at Den Helder in Holland during May 2000? Is she a preservation project or awaiting scrap?

She's a Foxtrot class diesel sub. AFAIK she is a tourist attraction. Actually, I think she might have been hauled ashore recently.

and hasn,t a preserved Foxtrot been on display at various locations in the UK?

Thanks RD77.

I'm not sure that she is a Foxtrot class, she look's more like an early Zulu class, the Foxtrot class have a different style fin. I'll attempt some research on the name AFAIK and see what it throws up.
There was a Foxtrot (475) as mentioned above on the River Thames for sometime and the attached photo shows her at Woolwich in July 1994, the difference in the fin is apparent.

This submarine used to be in kent in England but they kicked the owner out for not paying hes rent. ive been on it before it was a museam but i think it just sits on the medway now...soon to sink as its falling apart.

Acctually she is not a foxtrot class at all, she is a zulu V class SS project 611B from the 1950's she was built before the foxtrot came about, theres only this one left and she is used as a resturante in holland, theres around three foxtrots left as museams and one is a moving exibit as she visited folkestone.

Of the soviet submarines that remain theres only a handful,

Lima class in moscow
Zulu V in holland
Foxtrot (moving exibit)
Julliette class (played K19 in san diego harbour)
Foxtrot class in mumbai india
and several others.

Just like to note i studied the russian and soviet cold war navy for history and followed it on to present day if you wish i can supply full specification for the foxtrot and Zulu's and all soviet / russian submarines 1945 to present.

Thankyou sirs ~S~

Not sure of the class, but K19 widowmaker was filmed in and around Halifax Harbour and approaches. The opening scene clearly shows the graving dock in the Halifax Shipyards.

Dumah:

The Hotel-class submarine K-19 (the real "Widowmaker) was portrayed in the film by a decommissioned Soviet Juliett-class submarine.

HMCS Ojibwa portrayed the Soviet Whiskey-class submarine S-270 which also appeared in the film. HMCS Terra Nova portrayed the USS Decatur. As you stated, Halifax Shipyards represented the Soviet shipyard.
