Talking Slightly OT: Loose Screws in the Russian Navy

So, apparently this happened:

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...-own-destroyer

This would make for quite a caper-style adventure if modified for a T2k setting. I imagine that, in many cases extant naval vessels would be seen by many to have more value as spare parts and scrap metal than as operational weapons of war in 2000 and beyond.

Along these same lines, IIRC, in canon and elsewhere, nuclear-powered surface and submarine vessels have found second acts in T2k as power-plants for nearby facilities/communities.

Has anyone used naval vessels as something else not originally intended by their designers or original crews?

I can just add some personal experience to this.

For eight years I was Curator/Director of Operations for the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum (AIMM) in North Little Rock, Arkansas. AIMM is home to the historic submarine USS Razorback (SS-394). From 1970 until 2001, Razorback served in the Turkish Navy as TCG Murat Reis (S-36). When AIMM got ready to tow Razorback back from Turkey, one ironclad requirement was that her two propellers had to be removed, in Turkey.

Divers actually cut one prop off with a saw. They had trouble cutting the other one off and gave up about halfway through. A Turkish UDT team actually used it as a training exercise, diving at night, placing plastic explosives and shearing the shaft in two the next morning, once a crane had been rigged...

The two props are on display today...
