41
The new Varshavyanka class diesel-electric submarine has passed the next stage of factory tests, having successfully dived. This is stated in a message distributed by the Admiralty Shipyards.




"Admiralty Shipyards" reported the first submergence of submarines of project 636.3 "Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky". The submarine, which is a modernized version of Varshavyanka, should become the flagship in the new Pacific submarine crew fleet Russia.

One of the features of these factory tests was that the Admiralty Shipyards plan to complete them in one step, without the additional return of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to the plant.

The submarine was launched on 28 on March 2019 of the year, and on tests 16 went on August. The boat should be checked at the ranges of the Baltic Fleet and the Leningrad Naval Base. During the test, the functionality of the boat is checked both in the surface and underwater position, the tests are carried out by life support systems, communications and navigation.

The program includes speed and maneuverability tests, as well as dives. After the implementation of the program, the ship will return to the factory in preparation for state tests that precede the transfer to the Russian Navy.

- noted in a press release posted on the manufacturer’s website.

Armed and dangerous


The Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky submarine was laid down on July 28 2017 of the year. In parallel with it, the Volkhov submarine of the same 636.3 project fell onto the stocks. It is noted that the second submarine is in a high degree of readiness.

The contract concluded by Admiralty Shipyards JSC with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on September 7 includes the construction of six submarines of this type in the interests of the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation.

Submarines of the 636.3 project are the third generation of Varshavyanka submarines. They inherit from the 636 and 877 projects. They are considered one of the quietest boats in the world.

The designer, Rubin Central Design Bureau, in accordance with the instructions of the military department, made a number of improvements to the submarine systems in order to improve the technical performance and crew comfort compared to previous Varshavyanka class submarines.

The crew of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky consists of 52 people. The speed of the submarine under water is 20 knots, the maximum immersion depth is 300 meters. The boat is able to go into autonomous navigation for a period of 45 days. Underwater displacement - about 4 thousand tons.

The 636.3 project boats are equipped with the Caliber missile system. They have six torpedo tubes, ammunition - 18 combat units of torpedoes, mines or missiles.

    I am, of course, not an expert, but it seems to me that the Black Sea Fleet and the Baltic Fleet should be equipped with Varshavyanks, while the Northern Fleet and the TF are more atomic. Sorry, amateur opinion. what

        After reading the article, I thought that such modernized boats would not hurt to be based somewhere in Cuba ... To the "great joy" of our "partners".

        Not in the subject, today I saw the MRK "Ingushetia" in Rostov-n / D, tugs from the bow and stern, probably pulling in the direction of Novorossiysk. So the Black Sea Fleet will be replenished with another Buyan soon.

        In general, in shallow water, all submarines are the same. The large power supply and autonomy of the nuclear submarines, plays a decisive role in long duty. But cheaper diesel-electric submarines, in the conditions of a small removal of the water area of ​​duty, are more profitable than multi-purpose UAVs.

      And they do so. Only instead of Varshavyanka it is necessary to release Lada with 10 UVP (Vertical Start Settings) for a salvo of anti-ship missiles or missiles.

        the Lada has still not worked out the power plant, they are built without VNEU. And instead of a well-established and well-proven Varshavyanka, this Mr. offers to drive raw boats into the fleet? You either did not understand what you said (due to amateurism), or an enemy. There is no other way.

      Alas, the nuclear multipurpose submarines are very bad, so for lack of stamp paper ... And yes, Warsaw women in the Pacific Fleet are quite appropriate - at least to fight against enemy submarines who want to crawl into the same Sea of ​​Okhotsk, for example.

      As far as I remember in the Baltic Sea and during the Second World War, it was hard for the boats because of the shallow depths.

        It was bad there not so much because of the depths, but because of the fact that the Germans blocked the Gulf of Finland with mines and anti-submarine nets, almost tightly, at the very beginning of the war.

            There were not so many German convoys, they sent iron ore from Sweden through Norway. In general, the Baltic Sea is not a very suitable place for serious shipping, something like the Sea of ​​Azov. feel

      it is worth manning the Black Sea Fleet and the Baltic Fleet, and the SF and TF are more atomic in place

      That's right, they just do not have these atomic in the required quantities. In such a situation, and "Varshavyanka" "fish"

      The way it is. True, you can rephrase a little - all Russian fleets are equipped with submarines. Only in the Baltic and Black there are no atomic ones.

      The Black Sea Fleet is already equipped with 6 Varshavyanks. Brand new. Now they are urgently building for the Pacific Fleet. And it's not true that Varshavyanka is not needed for the Pacific Fleet. There Ishponiya is at hand. Let them know that the "Black Holes" are somewhere nearby. They don't even need to get close - all of Japan is being shot through by Calibers. I think these Varshavyanki at the Pacific Fleet are for fear of striped "comrades" from Okinawa. Well, the missile defense radar in Alaska will need to be put out of action quickly.

      I agree with you. Of course, the descent of this boat is better than nothing, but the impression is that it is necessary to do something ... The boat is useful for coastal defense, for operations in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. In general, I remembered a legend (or maybe a reality) how Stalin was shown a promising development - a Victory car. Stalin hardly got into it, got out, walked around and quietly said, Yes, the Victory is not great ...

    Here is what I found on the network:
    China - ten units of projects 636 and 636M are in operation.
    Russia - six submarines of project 636.3 are operated by the Russian Black Sea Fleet [21] and six units are ordered for the Pacific Fleet.
    Vietnam - six units of project 636.1 are in operation.
    Algeria - four units of projects 636M and 636.1 are in operation

    It turns out that we have 6 such boats and everything on the Black Sea Fleet? But in the north and east they are not at all?

    The Admiralty Shipyards plan to complete them (factory tests) in one step, without the additional return of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to the plant.
    Commendable. We save motor resources, time, what else is there? What are your plans?
    The boat should be checked at the ranges of the Baltic Fleet and the Leningrad Naval Base. During the test, the functionality of the boat is checked both in the surface and underwater position, the tests are carried out by life support systems, communications and navigation.
    Well, nothing too ... You will certainly pass the measuring line and the IEC ... But where are you going to go in the deep-sea ... I can't remember the deep-sea polygons in the Baltic ... And without them the boat cannot be handed over ... Petersburg "to the North chapal for their conduct ...
    The program includes speed and maneuverability tests, as well as dives. After the implementation of the program, the ship will return to the factory in preparation for state tests that precede the transfer to the Russian Navy.
    And the transition only after L-1, 2-3 ... The first-line will be released accompanied by NK (most likely SB) and probably by the NSR, but already in the summer of 2020.
    Most likely it will be so if the change goes well, without knots and hoots ... What I sincerely wish the Commander and his crew.
