    I will be ecstatic if they do, but I see no reason to change my prediction regarding the big nuke boats for now.

    Hell, I'll be glad if I am off by even two boats.

    If you were as careful and pessimistic with your negative predictions as you are with your optimistic praise when they do better than you predicted, I think you would get a lot less stick by our more optimistic members.

    It sometimes comes across as though you are hoping for failure just so you can be right.

    I perfectly understand... my father is the same when supporting the local rugby team... I think it is his way of coping with defeat if he never expects them to win when they do win it is gravy.

    Disappointment is part of life... deal with it... don't make it your world view.

    It is something I like about the americans... a setback is part of the learning experience... don't call it failure... it is only failure if you give up and you are more likely to give up if you never expect it to work out well.

    Of course Russia does not need to emulate everything the US does, like George Bush snr who said when he was secretary of state... "I don't care what the facts are America is not to blame!"... or the religious deep south reaction... a tornado just killed your family and destroyed your house and place of work... how do you feel?" "Well I feel this is a test from God and I am going to just rebuild my house and carry on."

    They talk about Aircraft Carriers and cannot order more conventional subs? 1AC is like 7-8 subs with AIP. Hope they wait for successful accomplishments of AIP tests and then like with PAK FA orders pirat

    Project 636 Varshavyanka submarines "Novorossiysk" and "Rostov-on-Don" will serve the Black Sea Fleet in August and December 2015 respectively.

    Nice thumbsup !! I hope Turkey will not block any ship/submarine transfer to BSF through Bosporus straits

    Russia’s Novorossiysk submarine ready to join Black Sea Fleet after trials

    The submarine fired a cruise missile from the Barents Sea against a target at the Chizha firing range in the Arkhangelsk region

    MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. The Novorossiysk, Russia's new Project 636 (Varshavyanka) diesel-electric submarine has completed trials in the Northern Fleet and is ready to sail to the Black Sea to its permanent base, Northern Fleet acting spokesman, Captain 2nd Rank Andrei Luzik said on Tuesday.

    The Novorossiysk submarine has completed its trials with a cruise missile launch from the Barents Sea against a target at the Chizha firing range in the Arkhangelsk region in north Russia, he said.

    "Today the crew has completed a cycle of the ship’s basic preparation, replenished provisions and is fully prepared to make an inter-fleet passage from the Barents to the Black Sea to its permanent base in Novorossiysk," the spokesman said.

    During the period of its stay in the Northern Fleet from November last year, the submarine successfully performed its submersion to the maximum depth and the check of its armament and technical means while carrying out live torpedo and missile launches in the Barents Sea, the spokesman said.

    Russia stops the construction of submarines of Project 636 "Varshavyanka"

    "A series of six submarines for the BSF project 636.3 will be the last," - a spokesman said.

    He stressed that the CDB "Ruby" is now working on a new project, "Kalina" with the anaerobic plant, which will be developed after 2020.

    'Black Hole' in Action: Novorossiysk Submarine to Hold Drills in Black Sea



    Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarines feature advanced stealth technology, extended combat range and the ability to strike at land, surface and underwater targets. They have been dubbed "black holes in the ocean" by the US Navy because they are virtually undetectable when submerged.

    ROSTOV-ON-DON (Sputnik) — A new Russian Varshavyanka-class Novorossiysk submarine will hold a four-day military exercise in the Black Sea, a source in Russia's Southern Military District told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

    On Wednesday, Novorossiysk, the first new Russian Black Sea Fleet submarine in the post-Soviet Russian history, passed the Turkish Straits and arrived to its permanent deployment in the Black Sea.

    "The navigation in the Black Sea is completely different. Besides, the Black Sea basin has peculiarities associated with hydrogen's occurrence," the source said, adding that one of the drills involves the submarine crew's adaptation to their new environment.

    According to the source, the crew of the submarine will practice tracking underwater ships at various distances.

    "After completing the training missions the submarine will arrive in Novorossiysk — its stationing site — on September 21," the source pointed out.

    Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarines feature advanced stealth technology, extended combat range and the ability to strike at land, surface and underwater targets. They have been dubbed "black holes in the ocean" by the US Navy because they are virtually undetectable when submerged.

    In July, Navy Commander Adm. Viktor Chirkov said that Russia will add six diesel-electric submarines to its Black Sea Fleet by the end of 2016. One more submarine besides Novorossiysk — Rostov-on-Don — is expected to arrive to its place of permanent deployment in December 2015.

    Russia's Black Sea Fleet Submarine Novorossiysk Arrives at Naval Base

    Russia's Black Sea fleet submarine Novorossiysk returned to the Novorossiysk Naval Base, according to Russian Navy spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Black Sea fleet submarine Novorossiysk has arrived at its permanent location at the Novorossiysk Naval Base in the south of the country, Russian Navy spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said Monday.

    According to Dygalo, Russian Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Adm. Viktor Chirkov, Black Sea Fleet Commander Adm. Alexander Vitko and Novorossiysk Naval Base Commander Capt. Oleg Shastov were among those attending the arrival of the submarine.

    The Novorossiysk is a Varshavyanka-class submarine, the first new Russian Black Sea Fleet submarine in post-Soviet history.

    During its stay in the Russian fleet since last year, the submarine successfully underwent maximum depth submersion and military and technical capacity verification procedure trials.

    Last week, it was announced that the Novorossiysk was involved in a four-day military exercise in the Black Sea.
