    Does anyone have any good references to the differences between Project 636.0 and 636.3?

    Mostly much better acoustic quitening and better sonar performance and improved C&C system

    Other than that carries the Klub with range of 1500-2500 km range

    636.3 argubly the best kilo out there without the degrading that comes with export model 636

    No, Alrosa is piered dockside in repairs right now. That pic is old.

    And it has been in repairs an absurd number of times. Went up to the North recently for repairs. Came down, and somehow is back in repairs already.

    Pump jets are high maintainence.... but with it being the only pumpjet Kilo then they might include regular inspections too just to check on wear and tear for future pump jet designs.

    They might be using it as a test vessel for other new technologies, which would require regular visits to specialists and more visits to test things are OK etc.

    So how many kilo components are made in Ukraine ?

    Got weird news (In Indonesian) from RBTH (Russia Beyond The Headlines) That over 70% parts of kilo are Ukraine made.

    That information is bizarre. It is physically impossible for 70% to be made in Ukraine since the submarines were never manufactured
    there and they are built by the same plant that made them in the past (but with upgraded manufacturing equipment). There is
    also nothing pertaining to the electronics and other equipment (e.g. sonar) that would have such a fraction of Ukrainian equipment.

    http://news.rin.ru/eng/news/54366/

    Looks like they have sourced all of the Ukrainian components from elsewhere.

    Sounds like they sourced their information from the west or the Ukraine....

    Kilos are 100% Russian these days.

    The few Ukraine-made components were recently substituted to domestic ones.

    There was a recent article about that, can't find it now.

    Submarine B-227 "Vyborg" back in the ranks of the Baltic Fleet

    According to the newspaper "The Guardian of the Baltic" submarine B-227 "Vyborg" [Project 877] relocated from Kronstadt to the Baltic and take up the challenge of combat training.

    Submarine "Vyborg" was in need of repair since 2007. However, the limited amount of financing state armaments program did not allow the Defense Ministry to begin funding the work on submarines before 2011.

    In 2011, the Kronstadt Naval plant started to work on a submarine "Vyborg". May 15, 2013 the submarine was launched from the dock "Memory 3 destroyers" and moored at the quay of the plant for outfitting works.

    Next mooring trials - from January to July 2014. Factory sea trials the submarine was launched in August 2014. After the address the identified observations in September 2014 the ship out to sea. Commissioning team and the crew of the submarine is fully completed the program and passed factory tests Navy.

    On Friday, October 24, 2014, on the pier in the harbor of Kronstadt Merchant solemn ceremony of signing the Act of Handover diesel-electric submarine "Vyborg" Navy Russia.

    The service life of the submarine, built in 1983, was extended until the end of 2017.

    Submarine B-227 was built for the Soviet Navy in 1982 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. In 1985 he was transferred to the Baltic.

    I cant understand why a ship is docked for modernization for 7 years and when it comes out it will serve only for 2-2,5 years. Whats the point?

    Simple. No funds to repair it back then.

    Now they finally repaired it, and it can serve out the rest of its life until replaced by something more modern.

    If the ship has life it can get another dock-repair in 2017 and serve for another 2-3 years after.

    I know little about military affairs but a naval man with whom I got briefly acquainted once told me the US went seriously wrong when it went for an all-nuclear submarine force. Conventional submarines are inherently much quieter and stealthier than nuclear submarines and they are now solving the problems of endurance that worked against them before. The Kilo class (which is what these submarines are) were a revolution when they first appeared in the 1980s and they have got progressively better. The coming generation of submarines that use a closed cycle system are going to be better still.

    Conventional subs are also dramatically cheaper.

    With AIP and Lithium Ion batteries the only thing a conventional diesel electric sub will lack in the near future compared with a nuke is the high top speed.

    they are easier to sell on the international market and are perfectly adequate in shallow waters where big nuke subs lack manouver capability.
