    6 new Kalinas for Baltic Fleet?

    Ladas not Kalina.

    My interest in the historical split is because recent history prior to the BSF 6 they had most in North & Pacific, presumably guarding SSBNs? -> may want to repeat that rather than even groups of 6.

    According to soviet/russian strategy, SSKs are to be used for "bastion defence" - defence of littoral areas from which SSBNs operate, as well as for disruption of commercial routes throughout the oceans.

    That was true when they had more than 300 subs in the 70s and 80s. Now don't even have enough to protect their coast.

    Back then Amiland had 150+ subs, now around 50.

First nuclear reactor was made for purpose of Manhattan project in early 40s. So, what are nuclear batteries to produce electricity by nuclear fission, without primary circle to heat water and without need to heat water in secondary circle and power turbine by steam. Turbine than runs E-generators. Fuel cells are not nuclear batteries. dunno
    You forgot about naturally occurring fission. It was Henry Moseley in 1912 who created the first beta cell, placing radioactive Radium inside a sphere of silver, to collect charge from the beta radiation. Here are a couple of links which you may find interesting...

    Alpha and Beta-voltaics are not great at high current applications, but are more energy efficient than RTGs, have greater energy density than electro-chemical cells, and decades long lifespans. There was an article circulating sometime back in June which discussed recent Russian research into radioactive nickle betavoltaic batteries.

    Rutherford split the atom in about 1917 or so and was largely responsible for exploring and identifying the parts of an atom.

    Rather important New Zealander he is... much like Sir Edmund Hillary.

    They are and have worked on a wide range of nuclear power generation systems from rather small up to rather large... large to power ships or major land based power generation, but also small for use in satellites and space stations and colonies on other planets where solar is not so reliable...

    ..the Russian naval department today announced that the work on the submarines of the project 677 will be continued in greater volume than previously planned.
    That is, much more submarines will be built than planned.
    Project 677 submarines are low-profile hybrid submarines capable of carrying up to 18 Caliber missiles and anti-submarine torpedoes.
    Such submarines are now considered the quietest in the world, and an improved hull cover makes their detection using radar almost impossible.
    The main driving moment of the submarine is created by a quiet permanent-magnet motor.
    At the moment there is one boat in service with the Russian Navy, and in 2019 two more will come to the fleet.
    All new submarines of this type will be sent to the Pacific Fleet, precisely because first of all they are intended for combat operations in the conditions of the World Ocean.
    That is, to use American terminology, these are the ships of "blue water". The main objective of the project 677 submarines is to fight the enemy’s surface and submarine fleet and to defend the deployment of nuclear submarine cruisers
    .

    The submarine is [quieter than Kilos and] capable of diving to a depth of up to 350 meters. The maximum speed of its underwater course is more than 20 knots, .. The submarine will be able to stay under water for up to two weeks without surfacing to charge the batteries.

    Such a diving depth capability is not needed in shallow waters!

    Wrong image, Ladas don't have VLS tubes

    Don't be so picky, western undercovers just switched sides welcome

    Perhaps mods can move the discussion to the topic where we can continue with criticising Virginias  Laughing

    Anyway according to Shishkin only one is coming next year: https://navy-korabel.livejournal.com/

    Those 18 Caliber missiles will be launched from torpedo tubes then? Or maybe they plan to insert a missile compartment on the new subs?

    That's an amour class based on lada with VLS. This design could be the basis for future ssk design.

    Yes, like how the new Kilos have 'up to 18 Kalibr' too.

    Ladas to Pacific fits with recent statement of Kilos to North but I think I'll believe it when boats start getting delivered.

    It`s a pity that people on this Forum are usually "out of the matter". Pr.677 SSKs don`t carry 18 kalibrs! 18 is a total number of weapons (torpedoes/missiles) Export version of Lada - Amur 1850, 1650, 950 (in reference to displacement) all have VLS behind the sail/fin. Dived endurance on batteries is approx 650M @ 3 knots - 220 hours approx - not more than 9 days. AIP version, if and when it emerges, will have greater endurance dived.

    I really don`t pick what has Lada to do comparing to Virginia SSNs?

    One is coming next year!?. Do you remember - i do - that first news about projecting type 212 U-boot i have heard more than quarter of a century aqo!, And the first was completeed in 2000s.

    'Up to' means exactly that, max 18 weapons but any mix from all torpedos to all Kalibr.

    The last 2 Kilos off Syria have demonstrated firing nearly a full load of Kalibr out of their 18 total weapons (vs previous estimates of max 4 or 6) so its logical that the same capability will be on the Ladas.

    Kilos off Syrian coast, as all pr.877/636 SSKs have 6 TTs. So, it is perfectly viable to have full salvo of 6 kalibr missiles. Reload takes some time and though, there is no effect of surprise and effect on target is smaller! Naval staff confirms no more than 12 kalibrs from two boats for one mission. Confirmed. Source... russian naval officers from Tartus.

    They could certainly fit vertical launch tubes to the Ladas if they wanted to... lets wait and see which ones they decide to go with because there are a wide range of options for the export model and being the main customer I am sure the Russian Navy can get any features they ask for as long as they are prepared to pay for them of course.

    A new brigade of Lada submarines (Project 677) will be deployed as part of the Pacific Fleet

    https://topwar.ru/151076-mo-rf-razvernet-na-kamchatke-novuju-brigadu-podlodok.html



    The lead submarine of the project 677 Lada St. Petersburg showed on tests that it's "much more difficult" to detect than submarines of project 636 Kilo
