    Project 877 boats are the quietest Russian submarines. In the west, Varshavyanka received the respectful nickname Black Hole for its high stealth. The submarine is noisy at the level of natural ocean noise.

    It is good when the ships and submarines are not standing at the pier in a half-dead state, but are carrying out combat and training missions in the seas and oceans! They brought life back to a submarine built in my hometown!

    Good news. Briefly about the average repair with modernization.

    From the official website of Zvezdochki
    At this point, the ship completed work on the repair of the hull, equipment, mechanisms of the rotor-propeller group, the main power plant and other systems that ensure the survivability of the submarine.

    Upgraded BIUS, GAS, navigation, communication. Still have to put new batteries.
