              They want the second. One is not enough for them.
              Asked Ash, but the Americans' tour of Nerpa closed the topic
              And it is time for Nerpa to repair EMNIP.

    Great news .. every MAPL is in service - it is important now !! However, according to the news:

    "Armament: 4 torpedo tubes 650 mm (ammunition - 12 torpedoes) and 4 torpedo tubes 533 mm (ammunition - 28 torpedoes), missile torpedoes and cruise missiles RK-55" Granat ", MANPADS" Strela-ZM "."

    As far as I read, the calibers were installed on it during the modernization, but in the news there is not a word about it ..

      I doubt, as far as I know, it was only about restoring technical readiness, this is not even an average repair.

        Isn't 3m14-51 the same thing as S10-RK55-Grenade, or is it necessary to modify something in order to shoot with calibers

          they are the same as RN R-7 Koroleva and RN Soyuz flying now, or are you talking about the same caliber of TA? At least, the equipment for controlling weapons with submarines is different ..

      "Caliber-PL" can use. TA of the required caliber on the "Vepr" is for this.

        Unfortunately, it cannot. But extending the service life is also very important in the current situation of an acute shortage of multipurpose nuclear submarines. The ship repairers promise that the next nuclear-powered ship from the "animal" division, which is undergoing modernization at Zvezdochka, will be modernized for Caliber-PL good May God grant that 6 - 7 nuclear submarines go through such modernization, as dear Andrey from Chelyabinsk wrote in his article. The shipbuilders are almost ready for this. The whole question is whether the toad will strangle the leaders of the Defense Ministry.

          Can use Caliber-PL.
          The nuclear submarine Vepr was being repaired and modernized at the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of the Zvezdochka Shipyard, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation). The press service of "Zvezdochka" did not comment on the information of the TASS source.

          The project 971 nuclear submarine was developed at the Malakhit St. Petersburg Marine Engineering Bureau. "Vepr" was built on "Sevmash" and transferred to the Russian Navy in 1995. After modernization, the submarines of this project were armed with the Kalibr-PL strike missile system.

      did they stay?


      In addition to "thick" torpedoes, there are also "thick" missiles. They were definitely not removed from service.

    The good news is that only 10 out of 3 boats of this project are in service, the rest are under repair and waiting. https://navy-korabel.livejournal.com/

    While new nuclear submarine projects in sufficient numbers will come to the fleet, it is necessary to be very careful with the nuclear submarines of Soviet projects. There will be work for them for another ten years. And to remember the 90s with an unkind word, when dozens of submarines were thoughtlessly "scrapped" drinks

      That such a cloaca is straightforward, no wire or TV-controlled torpedoes, no hitting 500 km, no plurys, no gagpd-empty or what, or all the weapons of the last century?
