The Foxtrot is a Russian submarine of the Zulu class, build during 1952 - 1955 in Leningrad and Serodvinsk, Soviet Union. This particular boat was bought by a group of Dutch submarine enthusiasts and was towed to Den Helder. Foxtrot is the name of the company that exploits the boat. This is a bit confusing since the Russian Foxtrot class (1958-1967) is the successor of the Zulu class. The early Zulu boats were used for trials with missiles (V-2 and Scud). The Zulu V class is capable of launching two guided missiles while surfaced. The foxtrot can be seen now in Amsterdam in the Maritiem Kwartier. More on www.maritiemkwartieramsterdamnoord.nl/
