Russian term or phrase: "позиционное положение" Soviet submarines
What is a "позиционное положение"? As opposed to a "боевое положение,"which I suppose means battle or combat status.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Clever Hedgehog Russian Translations
positioning, state of taking a stand (position)
Explanation:
"боевое положение" means the combat or allert state and readiness to shoot our launch a missile or torpedo. All the memebers sub's crew take their places in combat order and are ready to fulfill any battle task, e.g. the vessel is in fightnig trim.

"позиционное положение" is the state of the vessel and its crew in which the vessel takes a position (underwater or on water surface) at which it can either fulfill certain nnt-battle tasks, e.g. observation of sea, charging their batteries, etc., or stay (or navigate) in the most convenient position. If the sub is hiding from enemy, then its position can be in sink mode. So the term can be treated also as
"positioning". "Perevesti lodku v pozitsionnoye polozhenie" means to setlle the sub into a position ready for compat task fulfillment. The schedule of the crew and assignment to places is, say softer, than in "boevoye polozheniye".

Hope this helps!
