Severodvinsk ships in May will launch the Kaluga non-nuclear submarine of the Northern Fleet after modernization

Severodvinsk ships in May will launch the Kaluga non-nuclear submarine of the Northern Fleet after modernizationDiesel-electric submarine / DEPL / Northern fleet The B-800 Kaluga will be launched in May after modernization at the Zvezdochka ship repair center in Severodvinsk defense shipyard, the press service of the plant told ITAR-TASS correspondent today that the submarine is expected to be accepted by the end of the year It will become the first non-nuclear submarine in the quarter century to be repaired by Zvyozdochka ships for the Russian Navy.

The submarine stood for nine years at the pier of the enterprise, waiting for repair. Large-scale modernization work began on Kaluga last year.

Diesel submarines "Kaluga" was built in 1989 year at the factory "Red Sormovo" in Nizhny Novgorod. First, the submarine was part of the Black Sea Fleet, then redeployed to the North. It belongs to the “Kilo” class / according to the NATO classification / or “Varshavyanka”. The submarine was designed at the Central Design Bureau of Rubin marine technology in St. Petersburg. Such submarines have a surface displacement - 2 thousands of 300 tons, length - 73 meters, speed submerged - 18 knots / approximately 33 km / h /, full autonomy - 45 days, depth - 300 meters, crew - 52 person, standard weapons : 6 torpedo tubes caliber 533 mm.

The asterisk, specializing in the repair and disposal of nuclear submarines, has extensive experience in modernization and diesel submarines. Since 1997, the Severodvinsk shipyard has upgraded four diesel-electric submarines at the slipway on the order of the Indian Navy and is working on the fifth submarine. The company also provides repair and modernization of such a submarine at its home base - the Indian port of Vizakhapatnam.

      I recalled a note from an article 2 months ago

      Last Friday, Estonian Ambassador to Russia Simmu Tiik visited Severodvinsk. The visit was, to put it mildly, an unofficial character. is he together with several embassy staff, he arrived in the city of shipbuilders - a territory with regulated visits to foreigners, without any permits, reports IA "Belomorkanal".

      On February 10, on the Yagrinskaya Embankment, the attention of the PPS detachment, who was on duty there, was attracted by a foreign car, which drove into the embankment itself near Butoma Street. It turned out that the owner is a taxi driver who brought a group of people here from Arkhangelsk. During the verification of documents, two women and two men approached the car, who provided the documents of the employees of the Estonian embassy. Since the diplomats did not have permission to visit Severodvinsk, they were asked to leave the city:

      - During the audit, it turned out that they are citizens of the Republic of Estonia and have diplomatic immunity. Considering that Severodvinsk is a place with regulated visits to foreign citizens, it was recommended to leave the territory of the municipality, - Pavel Kiselyov, the deputy commander of the PPS battalion told us.

      The news agency correspondent also asked the Estonian ambassador that he had been brought to the shipbuilders city:

      - They decided to get out of Moscow’s cold weather and see how people live and try what the local cuisine offers, ”said Estonian Ambassador Simmu Tiik.

      When asked, why permission was not issued, Mr. Ambassador replied that he did not know about the need to issue them.


      And the boat is good and the enterprise does not just attract "fans of national cuisine" wink

        But the boat is good

        And how do you like this. For the Russian Navy they can create a fundamentally new submarine. This could happen already in 2014, said Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.
        "In the coming years, we can get an experienced air-independent power plant. On submarines of the Lada project (two submarines have already been laid), tests can begin in 2014. This is absolutely real," the admiral said.
        Currently, submarines of this class do not exist in the Russian Navy. In the combat strength of the Russian fleet there are only diesel and nuclear submarines. The Russian Navy will abandon the construction of Project 677 Lada diesel-electric submarines due to the imperfection of their power plant. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Vladimir Vysotsky.
        "The Russian Navy does not need Lada in its current form. We do not need new 'brains' with weapons that would sit on the energy sector of World War II. Why? Who needs it? And its operational properties are the same," Vysotsky said.
        According to the commander-in-chief of the Navy, the declared technical characteristics of the project 677, in particular, are not confirmed by the lead submarine of this type - "St. Petersburg". As the admiral of the fleet explained, "Lada" is a good project, "you just need to put what should be there."

      American fleet - has long posed no threat to Russia. Since the time of the USSR, Brezhnev.
      After all, he asked - we can destroy the Amer fleet - they answered him yes, calmly - only they will respond with YaUdar. And at that time - the USSR - did not have strong air defense and missile defense.
      Therefore, they decided - not to destroy - yet! laughing
      Especially now - missiles - Onyx - at 550km. aircraft carriers and other troughs are wetting them. Now new SUPER-missiles are being developed - anti-ship - Zircon - there will be a BEAST in general - hypersonic, ultra-precise, invisible for radar range mom don't cry. In the year 14, it seems - they will already be put into service.
      So - in the Amer fleet - only against savages - who have nothing but Kalash - to fight and is good. You look with whom they are at war - and how!
      All my life against the poor and the weak and civilians - marauders and murderers - there is no other name for the Amer "army".
      But in fact - all their weapons - worse than ours - sometimes even Soviet. And it costs - how ... knows what.
      There they are - still flying on our rockets in space - on rockets of the 80s of development! To Afghanistan - our helicopters and the Urals are being purchased.
      Full .......! As for the fact that they are "at war" with the Kalash, I will not say anything at all! wassat

        We were the most reading country in the world.
        There is a lot of evidence about the preparation of our military, for example, about a downed helicopter that had an emergency landing and the crew under fire, repaired and flew away. Is this possible in the "army" of "oil workers"?
        The principle "The king has a lot" is the principle of the foreign fleet. Our principle is "I die but do not give up" This is the whole truth.

      So the modernization of the boat was not. It was planned to upgrade Kaluga as Indian Halibut with the installation of the Club-S missile system, the Lama ER missile control system, and the new MGK-400EM sonar system (MGK-EM). As a result, the boat received only an average repair. Although in our time, average repair is very good. So 10 years since she should run. wink

          From the naval forum of the Flotprom

          Baltimore: What to say? It seems like everything has already been said above. About "one and a half times" is true. The "basis of defense loading" next year, as well as this year, will remain service, not the construction of MTV. The construction of MTV will help anyone noticeably, so only the corps workers of the 7th workshop, otherwise they have been sitting without work for a year. Well, plus to the whole 20180TV at the current price - the order is already unprofitable. About "Novomoskovsk" has already been written above. Well, fuck him such a load with a loss of 4 billion! The modernization of "Kaluga" in fact is not "modernization" - an average repair, and even somehow it so happened that this ship has a line in GOZ-12 - oops! - it was not. "Smolensk" - yes - VTG, but "Leopard" - medium repair. It is strange that there is not a word about "Marshal Ustinov". It is strange that there is not a word about the renovation of Verkhoturye.

          In conditions when the Ministry of Defense presses every penny on the shipyards, and the amount that the Ministry of Defense agrees to patch is usually 20% less than necessary, I would not count on modernization. Most likely, some of the equipment was repaired, some of it was removed from the donor (for example, during the VTG PLAKR pr.949A Voronezh, the broken turbine was replaced with a turbine removed either from Krasnodar or Krasnoyarsk), but what cannot be removed or restore it, of course, change to a new and modern one. But can this be called modernization?

          In general, you need to wait for information on the official Zvezdochka website.
          Now there is no information on Kaluga there.

    In 2003, at NATO exercises in the Baltic, the Polish diesel-electric submarine "Eagle" sank 3 frigates in training, while itself was never discovered by the ASW forces. It is not for nothing that Kilo-class submarines are called the "Black Hole in the Ocean" in the West. So the renewed old Kaluga will still make a rustle, if necessary.

      interesting design

      Project 877 "Halibut" / sub-series 08770 (?) - KILO (1980) - basic serial version of the submarine, head submarines - B-248 and B-401. There is an assumption that, in addition to the 08770 series, there was a 08771 or 08772 series - perhaps they differed between the manufacturing plants (respectively, the head boats B-248 and B-401, and the B-401, in this case, the head boat of the 08770 series).

      Project 877E "Varshavyanka" - KILO (1985) - export modification of the submarine pr.877 of the first series for the Warsaw Pact countries, delivered to Poland (B-351 = Orzel, June 29, 1986 transferred to the Polish Navy) and Romania (B -801 = Delfinul, September 19, 1986 transferred to the Romanian Navy).

      Project 877EK - submarines were not built, "export commercial", adapted to tropical operating conditions.

      pr.877EKM - KILO (1985) - "export commercial modernized" version of the submarine pr.877, supplied to Algeria, India, China and Iran. GAS MGK-400E. Adapted to tropical conditions. The last 2 submarines of the project are identified in the West as Improved KILO (presumably this is the "Yunes" of the Iranian Navy and the "Sindhurakshak" of the Indian Navy - the last pr.08773). The cost of one submarine, according to mass media, is from 150 to 200 million USD (1990s).

    Here is the news that "flooded" bully

    On Wednesday, they tried to steal important documents related to the Nerpa nuclear submarine from the Indian Novotel (the Indian name is "Chakra"), which Russia a week earlier leased the Indian Navy for 10 years.

    In the room from which they tried to steal documents, the Russian vice admiral Alexander T. lived Returning to the room at about 2.30 a.m., he noticed a cracked lock and immediately called the police.

    Indian Navy released photos of the arrival of the Russian submarine "Nerpa" ("Chakra"). The ceremony of commissioning a nuclear submarine rented by India for 10 years took place at the Rambilly Naval Base

    In addition to important documents, 80 thousand Russian rubles, a laptop, equipment and 2 thousand Indian rupees were stored in the room, but their criminals did not touch, writes Times of India.

    According to a police source, the attackers unsuccessfully tried to open the secret box. According to other sources, they still managed to get some documents out of the room.

    For the police, it remains a mystery how an outsider managed to get into a room full of hotel guards. Currently, law enforcement agencies are trying to identify the perpetrators using video from surveillance cameras.

    “We will find the criminal with the help of surveillance cameras. The document was not stolen, ”said the police commissioner.

    According to the source, the Russian officer arrived in the Indian city of Vizag on March 30 to prepare the country's Navy for work on the Chakra nuclear submarine.

    “He will be here for about a month,” the source said, noting that “several more Russian officers stayed at the Park, Taj Gateway and Novotel hotels.

    As the newspaper VZGLYAD reported, on April 4, Russia transferred the Nerpa (Chakra) nuclear submarine on lease for 10 years to the Indian Navy on alert.

    The nuclear submarine of project 971 "Pike-B" was laid down at the Amur Shipyard in 1991. In the mid-1990s, construction was frozen, but it resumed after it was decided to transfer it to India.

    Tests of the submarine ended in December 2011. On February 21, a submarine with Indian crew and Russian specialists on board went camping from Bolshoy Kamen Bay. The cost of renting a submarine is $ 650 million. Earlier, the United Construction Corporation reported that the contract value is more than $ 900 million.

    How odd is all this? Is it really that the Indian side cannot ensure secrecy, or do our Indians have secrets on this submarine? smile

    I am not a sailor, a tanker, but explain - diesel boats are not enough in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea Fleet. Even with such autonomy, the nuclear cruisers do not hold out - the 949th project is 120 days, the 667th - 90 days. And the 971st project is the most similar in goals to the "Varshavyanka" project - 100 days.
