    Fifth and Sixth Improved Kilo Class Submarines to Enter Russian Service

    By the end of May of this year, two more Project 636.3 submarines are due to be in service with the Russian Navy. On March 2, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the fifth diesel-electric submarine, called Veliky Novgorod, will be launched on March 18. The submarine will be floated out in Saint Petersburg on the 110th anniversary of the Russian Navy’s underwater forces.

    The MoD’s announcement of Veliky Novgorod’s launching was preceded by a Tass News Agency report that cited a source in the Navy as saying the launch would be on March 17. According to the same source, the Navy will launch Kolpino, the sixth and last submarine of this project, in May. Both of these submarines will join the others in the Black Sea Fleet.

    The Project 636.3 submarines, built by Admiralty Shipyard, are an improved version of the initial Kilo class submarines, which entered service in the 1980s. The first of these improved submarines, Novorossiysk, was laid down in August 2010 and entered service four years later. Since then, three others – Rostov-on-Don, Stary Oskol, and Krasnodar – have entered service with the Russian Navy.

    Russian media have touted the stealth features of the Improved Kilo class submarines, noting that the Rostov-on-Don, in particular, “is believed to be the quietest [submarine] in the world.” The NATO Alliance appears to view the Project 636.3 submarines similarly, dubbing them “black holes” for their stealth capabilities.

    In November 2015, as Krasnodar was being launched, Adm. Viktor Chirkov, commander of the Russian Navy, stated that this type of submarine could be built for Russia’s other fleets too. Though Moscow at first did not seem interested in procuring more of the Improved Kilo class submarines after the first six, delays to the Lada class submarines (which are supposedly even stealthier) have caused Russia to change course and order six more Improved Kilo class submarines, which will eventually join the country’s Pacific Fleet.

    With the entrance of these submarines into service, Moscow has wasted no time in showing off their operational ability. In December 2015, Russia released footage of Rostov-on-Don taking part in Russia’s intervention in Syria. From the Mediterranean Sea, the submarine fired Kalibr cruise missiles at Islamic State positions in Raqqa, inflicting “significant damage,” according to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

    Russia’s Kalibr missile launches from surface ships in the Caspian Sea, which occurred several months prior to Rostov-on-Don engaging the Islamic State, were described by U.S. officials to Defense News as being “really about messaging to the world and us that this is a capability that they have and they can use it.” The use of Rostov-on-Don in the Syria campaign to bomb the Islamic State sends a similar message

    Russia is intending to demonstrate to NATO its ability to deploy cruise missiles from both surface and underwater vessels to hit strategic targets in the Middle East theater, a region that had until recently been primarily dominated by NATO. Moscow is also demonstrating that it is strengthening its military appearance in the Mediterranean and Black Seas, in the face of what it sees as an expansionist NATO. The six Improved Kilo class submarines are an important component of that effort.

    A 636 was damaged by the Polish pigs... an intentional ramming on orders from their murican masters?
    Incidents like these are what Russian navy need to avoid coz it delays operational deployments.

    Does anyone know what kind of upgrade got Russian northern fleet Kilo class submarines"Kaluga" and "Vladikavkaz" ?

    I am curious about what did they upgrade? (sonar, weapons system etc...) or it was just overhaul with some minor upgrade?


    After looking at this video about upgraded Indian Kilo, I started thinking that maybe "Kaluga" and "Vladikavkaz" got same fancy LCD displays and same level of upgrade?

    Russian shipyard to put afloat new sub for Black Sea Fleet on May 31

    The sixth Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarine Kolpino designed for the Russian Black Sea Fleet will be put afloat in St. Petersburg on May 31, a source says


    ST. PETERSBURG, May 5. /TASS /. The sixth Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarine Kolpino designed for the Russian Black Sea Fleet will be put afloat in St. Petersburg on May 31, a source in the Navy Main Command told TASS on Thursday.

    "The submarine Kolpino is set to be floated out on May 31," the source said.

    Russia’s United Ship-Building Corporation told TASS earlier that the submarine is expected to be put afloat in May. However, the corporation did not specify the exact date.

    In all, the Russian Black Sea Fleet is expected to receive six Project 636.3 (Varshavyanka-class) diesel-electric submarines. The submarines developed by the Rubin Design Bureau are under construction at the Admiralty Wharves Shipyard in St. Petersburg.

    The fifth Project 636.3 submarine Veliky Novgorod designed for the Black Sea Fleet was floated out on March 18. Both Kolpino and Veliky Novgorod submarines will be delivered to the Russian Navy before the end of 2016.

    As of today, the Russian Navy operates four Project 636.3 submarines, the Novorossiysk, the Rostov-on-Don, the Stary Oskol and the Krasnodar.

    In late 2015, the submarine Rostov-on-Don launched Kalibr cruise missiles from the Mediterranean Sea to destroy facilities of the Islamic State terrorist organization in Syria.

    This is not a 636 boat. This is an older 877 boat that saw a mid-life refit in India.
    I was confused before looking at the video.
    Anyways, thanks for posting.

    Russian submarine launches Kalibr cruise missile during Barents Sea trials

    On Thursday, the Stary Oskol diesel-electric submarine also successfully launched a Kalibr cruise missile to hit a sea target

    MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS /. The Stary Oskol diesel-electric submarine (project 636.3 Varshavyanka) has successfully launched a sea-based cruise missile of the Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) missile system during its trials with Russia’s Northern Fleet, fleet spokesman Vadim Serga said on Friday.

    "The missile was launched from the underwater position at a Northern Fleet range in the Barents Sea. The costal target at the Chizha training range [in the Arkhangelsk Region in north Russia] was accurately hit," Serga said.

    On Thursday, the submarine also successfully launched a Kalibr cruise missile to hit a sea target, he added.

    In late 2015, another Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarine Rostov-on-Don launched Kalibr cruise missiles from the Mediterranean Sea to destroy facilities of the Islamic State terrorist organization in Syria.

    Order "Varshavyanka" for the Pacific fleet can split between the two plants

    http://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/3269887



    KAZAN, may 10. /The offset. TASS Alexei Ugarov/. Order for construction of six submarines of project 636.3 (code "Varshavyanka") for the Pacific fleet can be divided between the Amur shipyard in the far East and the Admiralty shipyards in St. Petersburg. About it on Tuesday in conversation with journalists said the head of the Department of shipbuilding of the Navy Vladimir rag-pickers.

    "Both companies are ready to build ships of this class, the final decision is made. Perhaps the series will be divided into several parts and will be transmitted to both enterprises," he said.
    According to Trapeznikova, the issue of placement of the order is in progress. "The decision will be made as soon as worked out the issue of under capacity, timing of construction of these ships", - explained the head of Department of shipbuilding of the Navy.
    In the battle of the Russian Navy (black sea fleet) are already four submarines of project 636.3. The lead submarine "Novorossiysk" transferred to the Russian Navy in August 2014. The second boat of a series "Rostov-na-Donu - 30 Dec 2014. At the end of 2015 it used cruise missiles "Caliber" for the destruction of the terrorist organization "Islamic state" (organization banned in Russia), while in the Mediterranean.
    The third ship - "Stary Oskol" - serving in the Navy of the Russian Federation from July 2015. Submarine "Krasnodar" - the fourth in the series, was transferred to the Navy on 5 November 2015. All these submarines were built at the Admiralty shipyards. The fifth and sixth submarine is planned to transfer the black sea fleet this year.

    Sixth Varshavyanka-class sub for Black Sea Fleet launched in Petersburg

    Russia will build diesel-electric submarines for the Pacific Fleet, fifth-generation conventional submarines for the Northern and Baltic fleets

    ST. PETERSBURG, May 31. /TASS/. The sixth Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarine of Project 636.3 Kolpino, intended for the Russian Black Sea Fleet, was launched on Tuesday at the Admiralty Shipyard (Admiralty Wharves) in St. Petersburg.

    "It’s a big day for the Navy, for St. Petersburg, for the country. The submarine launch is a national event. Admiralty Shipyard is indeed the flagship of the national shipbuilding industry. Your ships are delivered on time and with proper quality", Deputy Commander of the Russian Navy Vice Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov said.

    Head of the Rubin Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering Igor Vilnit for his part wished the crew of the submarine successful service and said that the designers will do their best to maintain the good quality of submarines of Project 636.3.

    The Kolpino submarine will be the final in a series of six non-nuclear submarines that are currently being built for the Russian Navy.

    Subs for the Northern and Baltic fleets


    Fifth-generation conventional submarines will be built for the Northern and Baltic fleets, Russian Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief, Vice-Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov said on Tuesday.

    "The talk is about building a series of fifth-generation conventional submarines," he said.

    Submarines for the Pacific Fleet

    The Admiralty Wharves Shipyard in St. Petersburg in northwest Russia will build a series of six Project 636.3 Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarines for the Pacific Fleet, Shipyard CEO Alexander Buzakov said on Tuesday.

    "The decision by the command has been taken and the submarines will be built at the Admiralty Wharves shipyard," he said.

    "We expect that the entire series will be built at our shipyard," he added.

    In turn, President of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov said the Admiralty Wharves Shipyard would be the main builder of the submarines for the Pacific Fleet.

    ‘We’ll see by the results of the year whether it will be possible to make a decision on the construction [a part of the defense contract] at the Amur Shipyard," he said.

    According to the president of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, the contract for building submarines for the Pacific Fleet will be signed in the imminent future.

    As was reported earlier, a defense contract for the construction of six submarines of this project for the Pacific Fleet may be divided between the Amur Shipyard in the Russian Far East and the Admiralty Wharves in St. Petersburg.

    Varshavyanka-class submarines

    Submarines of Project 636.3, also known as Varshavyanka, were developed by the Rubin Central Design Bureau.

    There are already four submarines of this project in the Russian Navy’s (Black Sea Fleet) combat strength. The lead submarine - the Novorossiysk, was delivered to the Russian Navy in August 2014. The second submarine in the series - the Rostov-on-Don - was delivered on December 30, 2014. In late 2015, it launched the Kalibr cruise missiles to destroy facilities of the Islamic State terrorist organization (outlawed in Russia) from a position in the Mediterranean Sea.

    The third submarine - the Stary Oskol - has been serving in the Russian Navy since July 2015. The Krasnodar submarine - the fourth in the series, was handed over to the Navy on November 5, 2015. The fifth Varshavyanka-class submarine for the Black Sea Fleet, dubbed the Veliky Novgorod, was launched on March 18. The fifth and sixth submarines are planned to be delivered to the Black Sea Fleet this year.

    Type 636 submarines are designed for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface-ship warfare (ASuW) and also for general reconnaissance and patrol missions. The Type 636 submarine is considered to be to be one of the quietest diesel submarines in the world. It is said to be capable of detecting an enemy submarine at a range three to four times greater than it can be detected itself.

    At least this bit of the Russian shipbuilding industry manages to pump out the ships in good time Cool

    I assume the short time between Launch & entering Service is because they are launching very close to full completion whereas the surface ships are launching not much more than bare hulls?
    Western & Asian shipyards seem to have long since switched to the near-complete launch for surface ships, is there any sign of Russian shipbuilders managing to move to that mode?

    I do wonder what they are doing for the year between entering service & transferring to the Black Sea, is it working up the crew or are they not really in service yet running trials?

    Good to see the 636 carrying forward the baton. But disappointed to see that Russia did not put its best efforts due to economic probs to have a version with 8-cell VLS and an AIP section when the 636 was revived.

    877/636 is now comfortably the most produced submarine design in the world, already it was with a slight edge over the U-209 family courtesy the Chinese order in the 90s and in the last 5 years it got better with Vietnam and Russian Navy orders.

    The new likely orders are
    6 x RuN (pakka)
    2-4 x IN (Indian media had some talks about it)

    Iran would be interested in getting new subs, but unfortunately Russia seems to be too much obliged to that crap UN stuff.
