Russia Submarine Heroes FDC

Russia FDC
Name: Submarine Heroes
Issue date: 2007 July 25th

Nikolai Lunin(Left one) (1907-1970)
Sorry, I can't find more information of him in English, only found he was the commander of USSR submarine K-21 during the WWII and some information quote from Wikipedia.com.

"There is a claim made by Russian sources that the Tirpitz was attacked and damaged by a Russian submarine during the short sortie. The fleet was attacked by Russian submarine K-21, commanded by Hero of the Soviet Union N. A. Lunin, at 71°22′2″N 24°34′3″E / 71.36722, 24.5675 (45 miles from North Cape, Norway). Lunin fired four torpedoes at the Tirpitz and heard two detonations. There is a degree of controversy on this case: since the 1960s most German and British historians deny any torpedo hit, but in Russia this case is studied in naval schools as an example of canonical submarine attack."

Magomed Gadzhiev(Right one) (1907-1942)
Sorry, I can't find more information of him in English.
