    I am pretty sure they are, remember that Kilo sub that fired cruise missiles at targets in Syria?

    What are you talking about? Russian subs are free to leave the Black Sea whenever they want. Look at Alrosa for example.

    Some people don't read the treaty properly...

    there are limits on ships that can pass through, but most do not apply to navies of the country that have a coastline on the Black Sea...

    A somewhat less boisterous media this time Neutral

    Here's a vid

    Subs is one section that explicitly includes BS powers
    https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Montreux_Convention wrote:Article 12.
    Black Sea Powers shall have the right to send through the Straits, for the purpose of rejoining their base, submarines constructed or purchased outside the Black Sea, provided that adequate notice of the laying down or purchase Of such submarines shall have been given to Turkey.
    Submarines belonging to the said Powers shall also be entitled to pass through the Straits to be repaired in dockyards outside the Black Sea on condition that detailed information on the matter is given to Turkey.
    In either case, the said submarines must travel by day and on the surface, and must pass through the Straits singly.
    Only BS powers can transit Subs and only if they are built outside & going to home base or are leaving to get work done.
    I believe Alrosa did the latter once but I think visiting Latakia for what minor work can be done there (which could obviously be easier done at Sevastopol/Novorossiysk) & launching Kalibrs on the way/way back would be extremely questionable unless there has been a clear precedent previously.

    Nice pics.

    But they launch Kalibr via torp tubes...
    Maybe if the next gen is quite a bit bigger but then they'd also be a lot more expensive -> fewer dunno

    I was talking about successor to Kilos.

    Kalina class is next one and I hope they squeeze a set of UKSK in the back. One extra segment should not be an issue. I saw model of proposed export version with vertical launchers.

    There would also be space for additional batteries next to launchers. It's useful for electric subs to have all the extra juice they can get.

    Considering the 32 missiles in the Yasen, i expect at least 16 missiles in the Kalina.

    Russia to lay down 2 diesel-electric submarines for Pacific Fleet in July

    The submarines are capable of developing a surface speed of up to 20 knots and dive to a depth of 300 meters


    ST. PETERSBURG, June 26. /TASS/. The first two Project 636.3 Varshavyanka-class diesel-electric submarines for Russia’s Pacific Fleet will be laid down in July and will be named the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and the Volkhov, Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Korolyov said on Monday.

    "In July, the Admiralty Wharfs Shipyard will start the construction of a series of Project 636.3 submarines for the Pacific Fleet. The first two such submarines will get the names of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Volkhov," the Navy chief said.

    It was earlier reported that the submarines for the Pacific Fleet would be named as the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and the Mozhaisk.

    The Project 636.3 (Varshavyanka-class) covers the third generation of diesel-electric submarines that are among the most noiseless underwater cruisers in the world.

    They are capable of developing a surface speed of up to 20 knots and dive to a depth of 300 meters. They have a cruising capacity of 45 days and a crew of 52. The Project 636.3 submarine displaces about 4,000 tonnes in its underwater position. A total of six such submarines are planned to be built for the Pacific Fleet.

    The first series of such Project 636.3 Varshavyanka-class submarines have already been delivered to the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

    The first two submarines of Project 06363 for Pacific Fleet

    July 28, 2017 at the JSC "Admiralty Shipyards" (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC) in St. Petersburg, the ceremony of laying two large diesel-electric submarines of project 06363 "Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky" and "Volkhov" (factory numbers, respectively , 01614 and 01615) - the first boats of this project, intended for the Pacific Fleet of Russia. Yuri Borisov, Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Rear Admiral Vladimir Tryapichnikov, Chief of the Shipbuilding Department of the Russian Navy, Alexander Drozdenko, Governor of the Leningrad Region, and Alexander Buzakov, General Director of Admiralteiskiye Verfi, took part in the solemn event.

    The contract for the construction of a series of six submarines of project 06363 for the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy between the Ministry of Defense of Russia and Admiralty Shipyards was signed on September 7, 2016 as part of the International Military Technical Forum "Army-2016". Under the terms of the contract, the first ship will be handed over to the customer by November 25, 2019, the construction of the entire series is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

    Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov at the ceremony said: "Admiralty shipyards are a stable supplier of weapons for the Navy. Over the past few years, the company built six submarines for the Black Sea Fleet in the shortest possible time, with the efforts of the shipyards we have strengthened this region, introducing stability and showing everyone that it is reliably protected. Now the plant workers are faced with the task of strengthening our eastern borders - the Pacific Fleet. And I am sure that the team will maintain a high standard, stable, rhythmic and high-quality build ships! ".

    He can take that to the bank. It was only a few years back RuN pulled their head out and decided buy them 6363s, they got them all on-time and en-mass. I say they order more of that little sub and never look back. It's one of the few boats Russians know how to build well and fast enough. So keep on it lads.

    Any idea which sub has been seen off Syria in recent days?

    http://charly015.blogspot.co.nz/2017/07/buques-rusos-en-la-costa-de-tartus.html

    I thought Krasnodar continued on to Sevastopol after launching Kalibrs, or is it still there?

    For a "gas station posing as a country" (McShitStain) and "a country that does not make anything" (Obummer) Russia can sure produce
    diesel-electric subs. I remember the absolute rubbish that Canada got second hand from the British:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/used-subs-a-daft-deal-for-canada-u-k-mp-says-1.1166047

    The funny thing is that Canada is part of the western hate chorus that bleats about Russia being a turd wrapped in tin foil (Ottawa
    Citizen newspaper). Canada is actually "a country that does not make anything" and is a hyena pack also-ran achiever
    by proxy.

    I've been pretty surprised & disappointed about Canada in recent years re Russia/Ukropia 404, made more sense when I read they have a lot of immigrant (& descendants of) Civil War Whites & UPA types out of Ukraine.

    Navy day is celebrated at every Russian Naval base.
    Tartus happens to be such a base.

    There will be a parade involving 7 ships including:

    The submarine KRASNODAR which never went to Sevastopol and is still lingering in the Med. sea
    The frigate Admiral Essen
    The frigate Pytlyvy
    A minesweeper
    etc.

    I don't think that Whites descendants would care especially since modern Russia is definitely leaning lot more into White than Red approach.

    But key factor are definitely UPA offspring, that war was relatively recently and those immigrants were some of most hardcore Nazis that ever existed and huge number of them was given a free pass in Canada.

    Fact that (as usual during Operation Paperclip era) there were no investigations or penalties for what they did, only additionally motivated them to pretend that they were "freedom fighters"

    Not only Ukraine but also Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Croatia, Hungary, etc all because they were anti-communist in danger of the new post war governments. Skip to present and 1,400,000 descendants plus later and...

    Being ant-communist is fair enough. Being anti-Russian 25 years after the end of the Cold War is retarded.
