The Zhelyeznly Akula (Iron Sharks} are Russian pirates based in Kronstadt.
The Zhelyeznly Akula are a group of Russian pirate submarines. It's origins traces back to the mutiny of Russian submarine crews in the Baltic Sea and the North Cape at the end of the Euro Wars in 2034. One submarine went into mercenary work, several stayed in Kronstadt and became part of its Kronstadt Militia, and the rest turned to piracy).
In the late 2030s, several of the pirate submarines banded together for mutual protection. They use Kronstadt as their base of operations and use Russian diesel/electric hunter-killer submarines (both aging versions from the EuroWars and newer versions acquired through the black market).
