Re: Submarine badge

Vicealmirante Betancourt, cómo ingresó en la Marina?

— Después del triunfo revolucionario vengo para La Habana como miembro de la Columna 1.

El 9 de enero nos acuartelamos en el campamento de Managua. Hoy, en ese lugar, hay un museo.

Existía la disyuntiva de qué íbamos a hacer los soldados rebeldes.

El Comandante en Jefe planteó la necesidad de que nos pusiéramos a estudiar para prepararnos para el futuro.

Estando en la oficina del Comandante de la Revolución Juan Almeida, en Managua, me entero de que en el Mariel existía una escuela para pilotos. Le pedí que me mandara para allá.

Como era de la Columna 1 tuve que ver a Celia Sánchez para que me autorizara el traslado.

El documento que me da Almeida decía: Se traslada al soldado del Ejército Rebelde, de la columna 1, Pedro Pérez Betancourt, como cadete de la aviación de la Marina de Guerra.

Por aquellos días se cierra la escuela de pilotos navales. Entonces, me encuentro con el dilema de que la carrera que iba a estudiar es eliminada. En esa situación nos encontrábamos quince compañeros. Hablan con nosotros y nos convencen de que ingresemos en la Academia Naval. Antes nos dieron un curso de nivelación cultural durante un año en El Morro.

Lo primero que pasé fue una escuela de marinos. Salí graduado como marino regular.

La navegación se estudiaba, una parte en Baracoa y la otra en el Mariel. Así, buscando ser piloto, me hago marino.

— La primera vez que montó en barco, ¿se mareó?

— Bueno, no precisamente en la primera, pero sí después de algunas salidas, en una travesía en el crucero Cuba, había una marejada muy grande y me mareó.

— ¿Qué estudios militares ha cursado?

— Guardiamarina, Comandante de buque, torpedera y lancha cohetera.

— ¿Dónde estudió?

— En Cuba y en la Unión Soviética. En este último país permanecí dos años en la Escuela Superior de Guerra en Leningrado y otros dos años en un curso de recalificación como submarinista en Riga.

Este curso, en la antigua URSS, nos ayudó a asimilar y perfeccionar nuevas técnicas en el manejo de los submarinos.

Re: Submarine badge

So actually, Cuba has no submarines, and the badges are only worn by those who graduated a submarine course in the Soviet Union, like Perez?

Re: Submarine badge

Correcto, Betancourt and Menendez were graduated in URSS and usually wear the badge, they are the only 2 Officers ever seen.

About current submarine in Cuba, well, MGR have 4/6 North korean Sang-O called "Delfin" and some "Human Torpedoes", like italian pig (WWII).


From http://www.histarmar.com.ar/ArmadasE...os-unanota.htm

Coastal Submarines

Recently, there are news of North Korean submarines of the Sang-O class seen in Cuba, operated by the national navy. It is believed that there are 4 units, but it is not known whether they are the primitive or the most modern, 40 meters in length and 370 tons, armed with two 533 mm torpedo tubes with 53-65K Russian torpedoes, also capable of putting mines.

It is possible that these reports are part of a confusion caused by reports of the Cuban submarine called, it is believed, Dolphin. There is at least one photograph taken in the port of Havana. It seems to be the displacement of the Sang-O, and has the same weaponry. Its design is apparently different, and there is a suspicion that the initial model was North Korean (North Korea used Yugoslavian plans in its construction), with Iranian help, as it also resembles some designs of that country.

It is not known with certainty, but it is thought that there are four/six units of these coastal submarines.
