    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.

    '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.

    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.

    Silent Runner: Russian Kilo Class Sub is Back in Action

    Vladikavkaz, a Kilo-class diesel submarine first commissioned by the Russian Navy in 1990, will return to service on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Navy will accept its advanced diesel submarine into service a month ahead of schedule after extensive overhauls, a Navy spokesman said Tuesday.

    "The Navy will accept the repaired and upgraded Project 877 diesel-electric submarine Vladikavkaz a month ahead of schedule," Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo told reporters.

    Dygalo said the Vladikavkaz, a Kilo-class diesel submarine first commissioned by the Russian Navy in 1990, will return to service on Wednesday having had its military and performance characteristics significantly improved.

    He cited Navy Deputy Commander Rear Adm. Viktor Bursuk as saying the overhaul included hull, equipment and other system repairs, as well as upgrades to communications, navigation, traffic control, naval combat data, propulsion control and other systems.

    Vladikavkaz passed all the speed, handling, noise and many other parameters designated by the Navy during tests in early August 2015, the Navy spokesman added.

    The ceremony marking the signing of the submarine’s handover is slated to take place at the Zvezdochka shipyard in north Russia in the presence of the Main Command of the Navy.

    Kilo-class submarines, sometimes dubbed "Black Holes" for their ability to "disappear," are thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world.

    Russian Sub Rostov-on-Don Passes Verification Tests and Heads to Black Sea

    Capt. 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev said that Russia's submarine Rostov-on-Don has completed verification tests.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia's submarine Rostov-on-Don has completed verification tests, and is on the way to join the Black Sea Fleet, a spokesman for the fleet, Capt. 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev, said Friday.

    The submarine is expected to arrive to its permanent location in early December, according to Trukhachev.

    The Rostov-on Don is a third generation Varshavyanka-class submarine designed to modernize Russian Black Sea Fleet submarine capacity.

    In September, Russia's Black Sea Fleet submarine Novorossiysk, the first new Russian Black Sea Fleet submarine in post-Soviet history, arrived at its permanent location at the Novorossiysk Naval Base.

    Earlier on Friday, Russian submarine Stary Oskol arrived at the main naval base of the Kola Flotilla of the Northern Fleet for further testing. As soon as it successfully undergoes a comprehensive military and technical capacity verification procedure, it will leave to join the Black Sea Fleet.

    Because it can sail under its own power in open seas, while on river-canal system it will require a floating dock to transport it.

    "black hole" from NATO since it couldn't track it. One would expect the experience gained in quieting these boats would have

    NATO should be careful. The story of arrogant invaders trying to dominate Russia has been very sad.

    Looks like there could be a problem, this is from last Thursday. A lot more at the link.

    Very early this morning, St. Petersburg blogger Ilya Kurganov (citing unnamed "navy officials") reported that Kilo-class submarine "Rostov-na-Donu" had arrived in Kronshtadt for unscheduled repairs of its electrical plant. According to the blogger:

       "...it began its scheduled transfer to its home port of Novorossiysk on October 16, 2015, but within literally a few days it was necessary to call for a rescue tug, with which it headed to a location where unscheduled repairs will be performed by technicians from Admiralty Shipyards, where the submarine was built."

    Interfax, citing an unknown source in the shipbuilding industry, confirmed that the submarine is in the Baltic Sea, but the source would only say that "it was forced to return to the Baltic for technical reasons." Finally, Admiralty Shipyards denied that any Russian Navy officials had contacted the shipyard to provide any technical assistance to the submarine.

    What is the range of a kilo class sub ? I know it's not the same if it sails sumerged or surfaced but in case of war it's dangerous to be surfaced while searching for the enemy.

    On wiki they said it's about 300 km submerged which is very small considering that early soviet subs were able to sail 20 000 km (see foxtrot on English wiki, I can't post the link I'm new)

    why don't don't they build it bigger with higher fuel/battery capacity to allow them to attack with the SNA's in ocean far from land bases ?

    For the norther fleet it would be better as they are far from England and North sea and they don't have enough SNA's to patrol in the atlantic, protect north pole from nato's SSBN, protect their SSBN.

    How would be the kilo used in a war ?
