The Spy who loved Me (1977) is the tenth James Bond film. Bond has to stop shipping magnate Karl Stromberg from using captured submarines against major cities.

LiparusEdit

The Liparus is not a real ship. According to the producers, it was loosely inspired by Shell tankers from the 1970s. The ship seen in the movie is a model, while the interior scenes were filmed at Pinewood studios in England on a special-built set. In the movie, the Liparus, owned by Karl Stromberg (Curt Jürgens) is the second-largest tanker of the world, and has been built between 1976 / 1977. Bond soon discovers that it is not only a tanker, but also a mobile submarine pen, and that it has a submarine tracking system installed, which helps her to kidnap submarines. The ship, which also houses a command center, an armory, quarters for the captured submarine crews and its own small subway system, gets destroyed after Bond (Roger Moore) unleashes a major battle between the British, American and Soviet crew members, and Stromberg's private army.
