    For the durability of a durable case! drinks
    happy holiday melt !!!
    There was a tired boat at the pier
    And a wave washed her gently.
    It’s not easy, apparently, the boat’s work ...
    Near the shore she was dozing quietly.
    What do you dream about at your own pier
    Steel Queen of the underwater depths?
    What seagull shouted alarmingly to you?
    What did the seals on the ice say?
    Her wind sang a song about the gentle sea,
    Stroking the boat steel sides.
    After all, again she will soon protect us from grief ...
    So let her sleep until ...

      Happy Sailor-Submariner Day !!! drinks
      The Vepr multipurpose nuclear submarine (NPS) of project 971 Schuka-B is currently undergoing factory sea trials after repair and modernization.

      As I understand it, the Boar weapons of Project 971 Pike-B have also been changed. Onyx and Caliber are likely.
      “Updated submarines will become deadly for enemy squadrons and aircraft-carrying groups,” an expert told Izvestia. - One of their volleys can hit several targets at once. Moreover, this can be done at a distance of the ultimate range of missiles. To attack, you need to get the coordinates of enemy objects from reconnaissance satellites, drones, planes or ships.


      The naval version of the Caliber went through baptism of fire, having established itself as a highly accurate and trouble-free weapon. It is also important that they can be used to strike strikingly at ground targets, which has been demonstrated in Syria. Now "Pike" will be able to effectively support the actions of our Ground Forces or landing forces.

        Onyx will definitely not. The caliber is in question. If integrated, the state should shoot back.

          The calibres on the upgraded 971 are already a fact. Follow the link in my previous post.

          Yes, everything will be, otherwise what is the point in deep modernization of 971 projects?
          Vepr is a third-generation strike submarine of project 971 Pike-B. Submarines of this type are notable for low noise and are intended for hunting enemy submarines and surface ships, as well as for guarding Russian strategic missile carriers on alert duty. Together with Veprem, four of the same type of nuclear submarines undergo repairs with deep modernization: Bratsk, Wolf, Leopard and Samara. All of them will have the opportunity to use Caliber cruise missiles.

          Initially, the main objective of the nuclear submarines of Project 949 Antei was aircraft carrier groups. To combat them, 154-meter ships carried 24 Granit cruise missiles each. In the process of modernization, the boats are adapted to use the latest Caliber, Onyx and Zircon missiles - there will be up to 72 of them on board each submarine.

          I was on her gosah (in the last century). I had a little "outrage." From a member of the commission I heard: “What, do you need most?” But the entire shooting program was completed. Although I heard a few words from the chairman. Of course it was necessary to be more diplomatic. He was young. But my six was small. He controlled everything that he considered necessary and made him do it. True, a special opinion had to be left. The pen, I remember, was a fountain pen. Seven feet under the keel, successes in the development of the crew. Sailing with a holiday.

            In the 91st, a sailor with peritonitis was removed from a similar side on the Kalinin in the North Atlantic. We gave 12 hours 33 knots to a rendezvous. On the boy’s boat with appendicitis, complications arose. The commander of the campaign didn’t let the Ka-27 go; the wind was very strong. Snipe removed. Stretchers on braces, a wave above the roof ... The guy in the cradle, the poor fellow, under anesthesia, already green. They lifted aboard with the longboat. And our operating room is excellent and most importantly, the Dock Surgeon-Hands Golden - Tolya Voitsitsky! Saved the submariner! Somewhere now runs a navy. Submarine Brothers Happy Holiday!

      At the state (20th century), the test program went underway for some time. Experienced all sorts of modes, etc. That is another impression. The sea is small (White). I felt the trembling of the body as the "fifth point". Imagine: a five-story house rushing under water at about 60 km / h. What a terrible power !. It was intense for the boatswain. On the “machine” the boat “jumped” a little. Feedback on the wheels could not cope. Impression: "like a horse." And in the manual is dumb. Not far to the bottom. I then thought everything, but is there a breaker on the surface? (hump). Eh .... Once upon a time we were trotters.
      Happy holiday! For those at sea!

      Deep modernization of 971 projects.
      “Full dock repair, repair of ventilation valves, kingstones, main shaft shaft, propeller, special rubber coating is being carried out, the hull is being completely painted, those ship systems that affect its survivability are being repaired,” director of the enterprise Arkady Ohanyan told Zvezda shopping mall.

      In addition, he said, work is underway to replace the core of a nuclear reactor.

    Explain to me why leave four 650 mm torpedo tubes if the "thick" torpedoes were removed from their armament? Could it not be installed instead of them 533 mm?

      These devices are made constructively in combination with all the equipment of the submarine. These are the supporting fittings, automated shelving and other body kits. Moreover, the devices pass through a sturdy case into the nasal extremity. But to cut old and “solder” new “thin” ones is not so simple. Well, "thick" hydrogen peroxide torpedoes is not the only product that can be used from the corresponding devices. There are rocket torpedoes. They are armed and loaded onto the submarine. So the "thick" devices come in handy.

    Great news! It is interesting that with weapons under 650 mm, they say they do not produce new products
