    They didn´t fail. That were "paper" projects. Things that the design bureau and yards could build if someone wanted them. Each design bureau has dozens such projects. If one or two get realised after 10 or more years they are lucky.

    MOSCOW, 14 April. /TASS/. The second stage of factory sea trials of the Kronstadt submarine, built at the Admiralty Shipyards, has been completed. This was reported on Thursday in the press service of the enterprise.

    JSC Admiralty Shipyards (part of the USC) has successfully completed the second stage of factory sea trials of the Kronstadt Project 677 submarine.
    According to the press service, at the second stage of testing, which took place in the ranges of the Gulf of Finland for nine days, the submarine was immersed and the ship's systems were checked. After returning to the outfitting wall, the company's employees will begin preparing the submarine for the next, third stage of factory sea trials.

    The shipyard specialists have now completed the docking of the pressure hull of the third Project 677 submarine Velikie Luki. Metal cutting continues for the fourth and fifth submarines of the project. The state contract for their construction was concluded between JSC "Admiralty Shipyards" and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in June 2019 as part of the Army-2019 forum.

    Project 677 submarines belong to the fourth generation of non-nuclear submarines and today are recognized as the most modern and promising domestic non-nuclear submarines both in terms of combat effectiveness and other performance characteristics. "Admiralty Shipyards" is the only plant that builds ships of this class.

    RIA Novosti; 03:18 05/25/2022 (updated: 03:19 05/25/2022)


    USC confirms laying of two non-nuclear submarines

    USC confirms laying of two diesel-electric submarines of project 677 "Lada"


    MOSCOW, May 25 - RIA Novosti. The laying of two large diesel-electric submarines of project 677 "Lada" will take place this year at the St. Petersburg enterprise "Admiralty Shipyards" (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, USC), the head of the corporation Alexei Rakhmanov told RIA Novosti.
    "We keep the deadlines, the laying of two Ladas will be this year," Rakhmanov said.

    He clarified that everything is ready at the enterprise to start construction, but the exact dates for the laying of two new ships will be determined by the customer - the Russian Ministry of Defense. The contract with the military department for the construction of two submarines was signed in June 2019.
    Earlier it was reported that the first two serial boats of the project - "Kronstadt" and "Veliky Luki" - should be transferred to the Russian Navy in 2022. The lead submarine "St. Petersburg" was accepted into the Russian Navy, but since 2010 has been in trial operation in the Northern Fleet. In September 2021, she completed trial operation and became a full-fledged combat unit in the Russian Navy.

    In total, this year USC is to hand over 24 vessels and ships, 10 of them under the state defense order. In particular, by the end of the year, the fleet should receive two nuclear submarines of project 955A (code "Borey-A") "Generalissimo Suvorov" and project 885M (code "Ash-M") "Krasnoyarsk", as well as one non-nuclear submarine "Ufa" project 636.3.

    "Lada" polar: the newest submarine will replenish the Northern Fleet in the fall, by Roman Kretsul for Izvestia. 24.07.2022.

    Silent boat "Kronstadt" will cover submarine strategic missile carriers.

    The underwater "black hole" - that's what the Navy calls this submarine - will replenish the Northern Fleet in the fall. The Ministry of Defense approved a plan for the transfer of the Kronstadt submarine of Project 677 Lada to the Navy. She is currently being tested. By the end of autumn, the submarine must make the transition to Polyarny, where it will join the brigade of submarines of the Northern Fleet. Today, the Kronstadt is considered the quietest boat in its class - it is capable of hitting underwater and surface targets, including Caliber and Onyx missiles. Experts believe that in the North, Kronstadt will be able to solve several tasks at once, including covering strategic missile carriers.

    Heading North

    The Ministry of Defense has approved a plan for the transfer of the unique Kronstadt submarine of Project 677 to the Navy, sources in the military department told Izvestia. According to the interlocutors of the editorial office, the submarine is currently undergoing factory tests.

    Already at the end of summer - the beginning of autumn, the submarine should make the transition to the Murmansk region. There, the submarine is waiting for additional tests, which should be completed before the end of autumn. After passing them, Kronstadt will become part of the submarine brigade of the Northern Fleet.

    “Today, the 161st submarine brigade of the Northern Fleet consists mainly of Project 877 boats,” military historian Dmitry Boltenkov told Izvestia. - Two of them - "Vladikavkaz" and "Kaluga" - were modernized in the 2010s, but in general they are outdated boats, and it's time to just write them off. The 161st brigade performs important tasks - ensuring the deployment of the main forces of the Northern Fleet in the Barents Sea - submarine strategic missile carriers, surface warships. In the context of deteriorating relations between Russia and NATO, it is necessary to supply the Northern Fleet not only with nuclear submarines, but also with diesel ones.

    In addition to covering the main forces of the fleet, the tasks of the submarines of the 677th project will include anti-submarine operations in the North Atlantic, the expert added.

    Protracted streak

    The Lada series became the development of the 877 Halibut project. These submarines have a displacement of 1.8 thousand tons, a speed of up to 21 knots and a diving depth of more than 300 m. So far, the Navy has only the lead ship of the 677th series - the submarine "St. Petersburg", built in 2010. Two years ago, it underwent modernization and can use torpedoes, missiles and mines, operate in the near and middle sea zone, hit both surface and underwater targets. At the end of 2021, she became part of the 161st submarine brigade of the Northern Fleet. In February, the St. Petersburg boat took part in large-scale maneuvers in the Mediterranean Sea, where she came with a detachment of ships from the Northern Fleet. As Izvestia reported, the exercises took place in conditions close to combat.

    The Kronstadt boat was laid down in 2005, but in 2009 its construction was suspended. In 2013, the submarine continued to be built, but according to an updated project. It was equipped with an improved navigation system and a more powerful and quieter electric propulsion system. The ship's arsenal now includes Caliber cruise missiles, which it can launch through torpedo tubes.

    In February, the general director of JSC Admiralty Shipyards, Alexander Buzakov, said that Kronstadt was "somewhat delayed due to problems with contractors."

    In addition to the Kronstadt, this year it is planned to transfer to the fleet another Project 677 boat, the Velikiye Luki. In addition, two more ships, Vologda and Yaroslavl, were laid down at the Admiralty Shipyards last June.

    The Lada project turned out to be quite difficult for the developers, Dmitry Boltenkov also noted.

    - But in the end, "St. Petersburg" brought to mind. Project 677 ships can now fire Kalibr cruise missiles. So, in addition to the tasks of covering the main forces and anti-submarine operations in the North Atlantic, these submarines will be able to perform the third round of tasks - to hit ground and surface targets, the expert summed up.

    Without noise and dust

    One of the two divisions of strategic submarine missile carriers, the 31st, is serving in the Northern Fleet of Russia. The ships included in it regularly go on combat duty. As Izvestia previously reported, it is to this formation that the latest strategic submarines of project 955 Borey and 955A Borey-A are being built as they are built. This decision was made based on the results of the maneuvers. During the exercises, three submarines simultaneously rose to the surface in the Arctic, breaking through a layer of ice one and a half meters thick. As Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Admiral Nikolai Evmenov reported to the President, the ascent in a limited area with a radius of 300 m was made for the first time in the history of the Russian fleet. Besides, according to the developers, due to new technical solutions, the visibility of the Lad is already lower than that of the diesel-electric submarines (DEPL) of Project 636.3 Varshavyanka now being mass-produced. After the installation of an air-independent power plant, their noise level will be below the background level in the sea. That is, it will be almost impossible to detect them.

    Initially, it was announced that an advanced air-independent power plant (VNEU) would be developed for Lada. With it, the submarine could move for a long time without surfacing. It was planned to equip modern Ladas with an engine with an electrochemical generator developed by the Rubin Central Design Bureau of MT, and hydrogen would be produced from diesel fuel and oxygen. But the development of this engine has not yet been completed, which has led to delays in the construction of boats. In 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Rubin signed a new contract to continue work, which is scheduled to be completed by the mid-2020s

    The first serial Lada has started the final stage of sea trials

    August 9, 2022 at 9: 13 am Subject: Industry

    The final stage of factory sea trials of the Project 677 diesel-electric submarine Kronstadt (code Lada) has begun in the Gulf of Finland. This was reported in the press service of the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

    As part of the event, which will be held in the landfills of the Gulf of Finland, specialists will check the electric propulsion system, the effectiveness of the hydroacoustic complex, technical means and devices at the working depth. The delivery team will test the torpedo and missile armament, check the maneuverability of elements in the underwater position and steering devices at maximum speed.

    After the submarine returns to the Admiralty Shipyards ' mooring wall, the company's employees will begin to eliminate the comments and prepare the Kronshtadt for state tests.

    The first serial submarine of Project 677 "Kronshtadt was laid down at Admiralty Shipyards in 2005, but construction was suspended and resumed only in 2013. In September 2018, the submarine was launched. In October 2021, it became known that the diesel-electric submarines are planned to be transferred to the Navy in 2022.

    The press service of the USC noted that Admiralty Shipyards built the Kronstadt submarine according to an adjusted project, based on the results of the pilot operation of the lead Lada – the Saint Petersburg diesel-electric submarine. The submarine's technical equipment management system, electric propulsion system, and navigation system have been upgraded.

    Sea trials of the Kronshtadt began in December. Then they continued in early April.

    Recall that the lead submarine of Project 677 "St. Petersburg" has been in trial operation in the Northern Fleet since 2010, which was planned to be completed before the beginning of 2017, but did not have time. In April 2020, she arrived at the Kronstadt Marine Plant for modernization. At the end of September 2021, it was announced that the trial operation of the submarine was completed.

    At the Admiralty Shipyards, the docking of the solid hull of the third Project 677 submarine, Velikiye Luki, has been completed. In June 2022, the company laid the fourth and fifth diesel – electric submarines of Project 677-Vologda and Yaroslavl.

    Project 677 diesel-electric submarines of the Lada type belong to the fourth generation of non-nuclear submarines. They are designed to fight submarines and surface ships, to defeat coastal targets of a potential enemy, to set up minefields, to transport special-purpose units and cargo. "Lada" is characterized by a low level of noise.

    The displacement of the Project 677 Lada submarines is 1,765 tons, the hull length is 66.8 meters, and the width is 7.1 meters. Underwater speed – up to 21 knots, diving depth - up to 300 meters, autonomy-45 days. The crew is 36 people. Diesel submarines are equipped with six 533-mm torpedo tubes. Ammunition – 18 torpedoes.
