I do not think the two first pictures is about a nuclear submarine - they are to small - I suspect it to be one of the Kilos they have (Diesel-Electric) submarines - great for the service in shallow sea waters - but less perfect out in the ocean - even if it can endure long tracks under water... The Kilos is a dangerous submarine if used properly -but lack the advances the Type 212/214 have - who is german by the way - and recognized even by US as one of the most advanced Diesel-Electric submarine in the world..

The last one is in fact a Whiskey submarine - whose class was rather infamous when it hit solid rock at the coast of Sweden in 1981 - and was made famous by a new understanding of the worlds Whiskey on the rocks...
