The power structures of Sevastopol noted that the submarine had already left the 13th shipyard and took its regular place at the pier
MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. The diesel-electric submarine B-871 "Alrosa" of project 877V "Halibut" after modernization became the carrier of the "Caliber-PL" complex and will soon return to the 4th separate brigade of submarines of the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) of the Russian Federation. This was reported to TASS on Monday in the power structures of Sevastopol.
"The Alrosa submarine left the 13th shipyard and has already taken its regular place at the berth. In the near future, its crew will begin to work out course tasks L-1 and L-2, after which it will return to the combat strength of the fourth separate submarine brigade," - the interlocutor of the agency said, noting that as a result of repair and modernization, the oldest boat of the Black Sea Fleet gained new combat capabilities - it became the carrier of the Caliber-PL missile system.
The diesel-electric submarine B-871 "Alrosa" was built in the city of Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod) at the Krasnoye Sormovo plant and became part of the Navy on December 1, 1990. The boat was built according to the unique project 877B, which provided for equipping the boat with a jet propulsion instead of a propeller, which ensured the most covert movement.
Since December 1990, she was part of the 153rd submarine brigade. In March 1992, there was an attempt to seize the boat with the adoption of part of the team of the oath of allegiance to Ukraine. After the division of the Black Sea Fleet in June 1993, for 20 years it was the only active submarine of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
In the period from 2014 to 2017, the Black Sea Fleet was replenished with six new diesel submarines of project 636.3 - carriers of the Kalibr cruise missile system.
