    Source: submarine "Wolf" with "Calibers" will return to the Navy in 2023

    She will receive new shock capabilities after modernization, said the interlocutor of TASS

    MOSCOW, January 5. / TASS /. The repair and modernization of the Volk nuclear submarine (nuclear submarine) of Project 971 (code Schuka-B) of the Northern Fleet will be completed in 2023. This was reported to TASS by a source in the shipbuilding industry.

    "The nuclear submarine" Volk "will return to the combat strength of the Navy in 2023, having received, after modernization, new strike capabilities associated with the use of cruise missiles" Caliber-PL ", he said.

    According to the interlocutor of the agency, the arsenal of weapons on board the nuclear submarine will remain the same - 40 missiles and torpedoes, but it will be expanded with the help of Kalibr-PL cruise missiles, the flight range of which is up to 2,500 km. The Zvezdochka ship repair center (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) did not comment on this information to TASS.

    The Volk nuclear submarine came to Zvezdochka for repairs and modernization in 2014. She was originally supposed to return to the Navy in 2017.

    Project 971 multipurpose submarines of the third generation were developed at the Malakhit St. Petersburg Maritime Bureau of Mechanical Engineering. In total, the 24th division of the Northern Fleet's submarine forces includes six nuclear submarines - Leopard, Vepr, Tiger, Panther, Gepard, and Wolf.

    On December 26, 2020, the Ministry of Defense reported that after the completion of the repair and modernization of the Leopard submarine, it was withdrawn from the slipway of the Zvezdochka ship repair center in Severodvinsk.

    In total, Zvezdochka and its enterprises are currently modernizing five Project 971 nuclear submarines, including two from the Pacific Fleet.

    Submarine "Tiger" of the "animal" division will return to the fleet in 2022

    Submarine repairs began in 2019

    MOSCOW, January 11. / TASS /. The Project 971 Tiger multipurpose nuclear submarine (nuclear submarine) (code Schuka-B) will return to the Northern Fleet in 2022 after repairs are completed and technical readiness is restored. This was reported to TASS on Monday by a source in the military-industrial complex.

    "Repair work on the technical condition of the Tiger nuclear submarine is planned to be completed in 2022, after which the boat will return to the combat strength of the fleet," the agency's interlocutor said.

    The nuclear submarine Tiger arrived at the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of the Zvezdochka ship repair center, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) in 2019. According to reports, its modernization, following the example of a number of other Project 971 submarines, has not yet been envisaged.

    The Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center did not comment to TASS on the timing of the completion of the repair.

    A total of five Project 971 nuclear submarines, including two from the Pacific Fleet, are undergoing repair and modernization at Zvezdochka and its enterprises.

    Now in the combat composition of the 24th ("animal" by the names of submarines) division of the submarine forces of the Northern Fleet are nuclear submarines of project 971 "Panther", "Vepr" and "Gepard". Earlier it was reported that the Leopard nuclear submarine will return to service in 2021, the Wolf - in 2023. Thus, in 2023, the "animals" will gather almost in full.

    As said, now the time for the SS(G)N has come.

    Submarine "pike" series "Samara" will complete repair and modernization in 2023

    Then the tests of the updated submarine should begin, which will receive the Kalibr-PL cruise missiles, a source said.

    MOSCOW, January 14. / TASS /. The repair and modernization of the Samara nuclear submarine (nuclear submarine) of Project 971 (code Schuka-B) of the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) will be completed in 2023. TASS was informed about this on Thursday by a source in the military-industrial complex.

    "It is planned that the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center will complete the repair and modernization of Samara in 2023," he said, noting that then tests of the updated submarine, which will receive the Kalibr-PL cruise missiles, should begin.

    According to another TASS source, as of August 2020, the submarine was undergoing the first stage of repair and modernization. The work was carried out by specialists from Zvezdochka (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation). Zvezdochka's press service did not comment on this information.

    Initially, the nuclear submarines "Bratsk" and "Samara" were planned to be repaired in the North-East Repair Center (SVRTs) located in Kamchatka in Vilyuchinsk, but after a visit to the enterprise of the Minister of Defense of Russia General of the Army Sergei Shoigu in March 2013, it was decided to transfer the modernization of the submarines to another contractor ... The reason for this decision was the delay in the repair work, which was supposed to start in 2008. According to the original schedule, sea trials of the Bratsk nuclear submarine were planned to begin in December 2012.

    It is known that the Bratsk nuclear submarine after the completion of repairs and deep modernization will become the third nuclear submarine leased to the Indian Navy. As a TASS source clarified earlier, the transfer of the "Bratsk" converted for Russian-Indian Brahmos missiles is planned for the first quarter of 2026.

    So Bratsk is going to India, very interesting. I wonder what the RuN will do with Nerpa (INS Chakra) when she is returned after the lease expires in early 2022? Maybe they will extend the lease until Bratsk is ready?

    Anyhow, it looks like the delays in 971 modenisations are finally being overcome. How much of the delays have been caused by a lack of funding/resources for repairs at Zvezdochka as opposed to new builds? Sevmash doesn't seem to be affected, so the problem isn't a loss of national capabilities.

    It seems that India funds the modernization of those that are leased to them afterwards
