In November 1984, the Soviet Union's best submarine captain in their newest sub violates orders and heads for the USA. Is he trying to defect or to start a war?
Natalia Ramius died on November 23, 1983.
When underway in such clandestine situations, submarines never go active on sonar, as it compromises their stealth and allows for easy detection from great distances. When Red October and Dallas are communicating at periscope depth, Red October twice signals confirmation to Dallas with "one ping". Considering that, both the U.S. and Soviet fleet were closing in and ready to kill Red October, the acoustic enormity of those two sonar pings would have clearly meant the end for Red October.
The words "Red October" are first spelled in Russian, with the Cyrillic alphabet, before being replaced with the English words.
