The painting depicts a Russian Oscar II class in the process of making a sudden starboard turn to clear his baffles….
the so-called “CrazyIvan”manoeuvre. The trailer, USS Toledo, is depicted at the moment he has stopped his propeller
and gone quiet in an attempt to maintain subterfuge. The painting was inspired by the rumoured encounter between
the Kursk (K-141), USS Toledo and USS Memphis. View the information PDF below. (Note: An art print of this
painting is in the Bowfin Museum at the the Pearl Harbor Memorial at Oahu- along with my USS Hawaii SSN-776)
