It is supposed to be mounted on nuclear submarines Belgorod (Project 09852) and Khabarovsk (Project 09851). The first one, formerly a cruise missile carrier, is being rebuilt into a special-purpose submarine, and the second one is being built from scratch. Both subs are at the Sevmash shipyard.


    A Status-6 recent update


    After making a splash in November, the Status-6 underwater drone has almost completely disappeared from the news. Probably for a good reason - the story looked like a deliberate fake from the beginning. And by all indications it was. Moreover, it appears that the appearance of that Status-6 slide on TV was an elaborate ploy that had something to do with an obscure internal power struggle in the Russian ministry of defense. Details are elusive and not particularly important, but the word is that the episode did result in some very high-level MoD officials being interrogated at Lefortovo regarding the alleged breach of security. Nothing came out of it, however.

    That does not necessarily mean, however, that there is nothing behind the story. In February, a Russian newspaper published an article that mentioned Status-6 and included a photo that shows something that looks very much as a container that can house the drone on the slide:



    The caption says that it's a mockup of a "Skif self-propelled underwater vehicle." The article also has some interesting information about the project (although, as always, some scepticism is advised). It says that tests of the vehicle began the fall of 2008 and it is expected to be ready for deployment in 2019-2023. We still have time to figure it out.

    Another photo, which shows the container from a much closer distance:



    There is nothing inside yet - it's a mockup of the real thing. But the photo appears to have been taken in 2009, so the program may have made some advances since then.

    Speaking of timing, Rose Gottemoeller was asked at the hearings back in December 2015 if the United States was aware of the Status-6 when it was negotiating the New START treaty. She said "unequivocally no." Which is interesting - on the 2009 photo the mockup seems pretty beat-up, so it had been hauled around for some time. Someone must have seen something.

    Since the “Arctic-2012” expedition in 2012 where it was sent down to 3000m it was not in the focus.
    AS-12 saw some repairs after that journey at Severodvinsk.
    Now (June 2016) it seems back at Olenya Guba.
    Terraserver has a nice image. There she is together with a Paltus class (AS-35)

    ...screwy forum, this.

    It has in giant letters:

    "turning the Arctic into Russia's own back yard"

    I mean really... the bald face temerity of Russia to even consider turning its own back yard into its own back yard.

    Doesn't it realise that the US does not understand geography and the Arctic obviously belongs to the US.

    Lots of interesting information but ruined by so much western STUPID.

    It is like a fan boy site that peppers its articles with western stereotypes to get some credibility with a western audience... and to be honest that turns my stomach... it is just creepy. And ignorant.

    Originally, Submarine was built 1986 as third boat in Delta IV class SSBN.
    Later it was decided to convert it to special purpose submarine.
    After finishing all trials, she will become part of 29 separate submarine brigade of Northern fleet.

    Originally built to be a SSBM but converted to be a mini-sub carrier.

    Oh I assume for various special missions that require mini subs will this be the only sub carrier russia fields or will there be more?

    There is a second, the BS-136 Orenburg which is a converted SSBM sub also but of an older version.

    They'll definitely build more, fitted with autonomous sub "Kanyon", with Status-6 munition load outs.
