Preliminary dates for the arrival of the first two "Varshavyanka" at the Pacific Fleet have been announced

The first two "Varshavyanka" built for the Pacific fleet, will arrive in Kamchatka next year, 2021. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in the shipbuilding industry.


Diesel-electric submarines "Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky" and "Volkhov", built at the "Admiralty shipyards", will go to the inter-fleet passage from the Baltic to the Pacific Fleet in 2021. According to preliminary information, both submarines will pass along the Northern Sea Route. The passage of submarines can be combined with the next annual cruise of ships of the Northern Fleet along the Northern Sea Route, which traditionally takes place in the summer months.

At the same time, according to the source, it is possible that in the event of an operational need, both Varshavyankas can begin the inter-fleet passage earlier. In this case, they will go along the "southern" route: Mediterranean Sea - Suez Canal - Indian Ocean.

The diesel-electric submarines Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Volkhov are the first and second submarines of the 636.3 Varshavyanka project out of six for the Pacific Fleet, the construction contract for which was signed by the RF Ministry of Defense and Admiralty Shipyards in September 2016. Both submarines were laid down on the same day - July 28, 2017.

The Volkhov is currently undergoing state tests and is preparing to be transferred to the Navy; Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky entered the fleet in November 2019.

The third and fourth submarines, named Ufa and Magadan, were laid down at the Admiralty Shipyards on November 1 last year.

    Well, at least such, not to fat.
    It’s interesting, but then it will be possible to simply take out the ancient battery and put something more capacious on them?

      Theoretically I think that it is possible. But how practically, only experts can tell.

    If the delivery terms are such, then both Ufa and Magadan will be delivered to the fleet in 22g. , or faster at 21? wink

      Rather, in the 22nd. It is unlikely that they will manage in 2 years. Too fast for a submarine (albeit small)! And so - 3 years is quite enough normal term (by world standards).

    both submarines will sail along the Northern Sea Route.
    The Northern Sea Route is gaining momentum. This makes me happy. good Once the ships at the Pacific Fleet were transported on the Transsib disassembled or driven around Africa.

      yes, for about 50 years nuclear submarines and diesel-electric submarines along the Northern Sea Route themselves, basically, go to the Pacific Fleet .. it's you just about very old times ..

    Does such a campaign consume most of the resource?
