|} Soviet submarine B-515 was a Tango-class submarine of the Soviet and Russian Navies. She was built in 1976 and remained in active service until 2001.[1] She is currently docked in Hamburg and is open to the public as a museum exhibit. The submarine is sometimes referred to as U-434, which derives from the pennant number painted on the vessel.

This submarine was used for hunting, espionage, and patrol purposes. A 78-man crew operated the boat.[2]
