The Ramius is the third large-scale military sub to appear physically in a Grand Theft Auto game, the first being the USS Numnutz in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and the second one the partially-constructed submarine seen in the LS Port in Grand Theft Auto V.
The vessel appears to be based on the Typhoon-class nuclear-powered submarine, having the characteristic rounded front end with fins, rear square-shaped portion and cased propellers. However, it appears to be much smaller compared to the real life submarine.
The submarine contains three levels, each one containing specific rooms listed below:
- Upper level
- Control room: the main room of the submarine, where the monitoring screens and several devices are located. There is a small circular platform where the vessel crew use the periscopes. It is located between the missile room and the stairs leading to the middle level.
- Missile room: a three-level room where the missile tubes can be seen. There are six tubes per side of the hallway, each one with a circular hatch. It is adjacent to the control room.
- Rear section: A medium-sized room that connects the upper missile room with the engine room through a ladder. A small room leads to the aft access hatch, where the submarine team entered the vessel. A set of scuba diving gear is located in there, where the team would eventually use it for escape, next to a set of ladders leading to the engine room.
- Middle level
- Gym room: a small room where the crew perform exercises, fitted with several weight lifting equipment and other devices. It is located at right-hand side of the ladder.
- Living areas: basically the room where the vessel crew rests. Several beds and lockers can be seen here, along with posters and small radio devices. It is located right under the control room. The room has capacity for at least 30 vessel crew members.
- Gallery: a medium-sized room where food is served to the vessel crew. It contains tables and chairs on one side and the kitchen on the opposite side. There are cabinets containing several cans of food. It is adjacent to the living areas and leads to a stairs to the lower level.
- Lower level
- Brig: a small room where errant sailors are kept imprisoned, found ahead of the stairs connecting to the middle floor. There is a small monitoring room and a cell room with two beds, able to keep two inmates. The navy contact is found here.
- Torpedo room: a large room where large torpedoes are seen. The room consist of two large racks on either side, containing four torpedoes and a fifth one on ground level, as well as six small hatches on the front wall, where they should be loaded for launch. It is found passing the brig.
- Missile room: as stated above. Is is found opposite the stairs that lead to the middle floor.
- Nuclear reactor room: a small room that provides connection between the brig and the engine room. A large chamber with the nuclear warning marked above an unusable door can be seen here.
- Engine room: a large two-level room where the engine is seen, with two elevated walkways passing above it. A set of stairs provide access to the middle floor and another walkway leads to another room with the ladder that connects it with the upper floor. The main engine room is connected with two other smaller engine rooms, the lower one connected to the Nuclear reactor room and the upper one connected to the rear room via ladder access.
Several stairs provide connection between the levels, as well as a ladder that connects the engine room with the rear section of the upper level.
- Bogdan - Commander
- Unnamed navy contact - Found imprisoned in the brig.
Prominent Appearances in Missions
Grand Theft Auto Online
- The submarine appeared physically in the setup mission "Submarine Recon", where the crew have to disarm sea mines around the vessel.
- Later, it is seen again in the heist finale "The Bogdan Problem", where the crew sneaks the submarine through the aft access hatch in order to search and eliminate their commander, Bogdan. After Avon's betrayal, Cliffford sets a self-destruct sequence on the vessel, forcing Bogdan and the crew to escape and being destroyed in the process.
- While not directly refered as such in-game, the vessel has "Ramius" and "2701" printed on the con tower, as well as a double-headed eagle. These markings are rather difficult to see due to the vessel being underwater and approaching it would trigger the cinematic of entering the vessel.
- Its name is an obvious reference to Captain Marko Ramius from The Hunt for Red October, where its real-life inspiration also appeared as the main submarine of the same movie.
- The double-headed eagle emblem was a symbol of the Russian Empire.
