    These are fantastic submarines. The name "Obninsk" doesn't ring a bell though?

    Expanded news from last days:

    Nuclear submarine "Tiger" project 971 "Pike-B" in the course of modernization will receive new weapons

    The multi-purpose nuclear submarine (NPS) "Tigr" of project 971 (code "Pike-B"), undergoing repairs with modernization at the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of the Zvezdochka ship repair center), will receive a new weapon system. This was reported by a source in the defense industry.

    The modernized "Tiger" will be armed with the package complex "Caliber-PL", as well as two other submarines of this project - "Leopard" and "Wolf", undergoing modernization at the TsSR "Zvezdochka". The submarine should receive new electronic weapons, a control system, communications, navigation, hydroacoustics, CIUS. Earlier it was reported that technical readiness would be returned to the submarine, the modernization of weapons was not envisaged.

    Nuclear submarine "Tiger" after modernization at the plant "Nerpa" will return to the combat strength of the Northern fleet, armed with the Caliber complex

    - leads TASS source words.

    The return of the "Tiger" to the combat strength is planned for next year, although earlier it was said about 2022. In this year, the Leopard nuclear submarine of project 971 will return to the Northern Fleet, and in 2023 - the Volk nuclear submarine of the same project. All submarines are part of the 24th "Animal Division" of the Northern Fleet of the Navy. In total, the division has 6 submarines - "Leopard", "Wolf", "Tiger", "Vepr", "Panther", "Cheetah". The last three are in the combat composition of the fleet.

    The nuclear submarine "Tigr" is considered to be under repair since the mid-2010s, but the repair of the submarine at the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of the Zvezdochka ship repair center) began in 2019.

    The K-154 "Tigr" submarine was laid down in 1989 in Severodvinsk, launched on July 10, 1993, and joined the Northern Fleet on December 5, 1994. The submarine was built according to a project with improved acoustic stealth. Characteristics: The greatest length - 110,3 m; maximum width - 13,6 m; average draft - 9,7 m; total displacement - 12770 tons; working depth of immersion - 520 m; maximum immersion depth - 600 m; full underwater speed - 33 knots; surface speed - 11,6 knots; autonomy - 100 days; crew - 73 people.

    Armament: 4 torpedo tubes 650 mm, 4 torpedo tubes 533 mm, torpedoes, mines, anti-ship and anti-submarine missiles.

    BTW, shouldn't this thread be renamed to Shchuka-B Class instead of Akula?

    No, because that ship has sailed long before this forum was even created

    This late in the game it's best to just leave it to play out until the end, especially since last other Akula is almost on it's way to becoming museum exhibit

    It should be called Pike as it is an English language forum, but it is known in the west as Shark (Akula), but obviously the Soviets and Russians call their Typhoon class subs Shark (Akula)...

    It is potentially very confusing.

    BTW information about Calibre-PL is here:

    http://roe.ru/eng/catalog/naval-systems/shipborne-weapons/club-s/

    This is Club-S, which is the export equivalent... much shorter ranged missiles of course due to export restrictions.
