The date of the return of the modernized nuclear submarine "Samara" of project 971 to the fleet of the Pacific Fleet

Project 971 (Schuka-B) multipurpose nuclear submarine Samara will return to the combat strength of the Pacific Ocean fleet in 2023. It is reported by TASS citing a source in the Russian defense industry.


According to the source, in 2023, the nuclear submarine should begin testing after the repair and modernization. Details of the work carried out on the submarine are not given, but it is known for sure that a decision has been made to re-equip the submarine. Thus, it can be stated that the submarine will not only undergo repairs, but will also receive Caliber cruise missiles.

It is planned that the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center will complete the repair and modernization of Samara in 2023

- the agency leads the words of the source.

For our part, we note that initially the Samara nuclear submarine was supposed to undergo repairs in Vilyuchinsk, but in 2014 it was decided to deliver the submarine to Severodvinsk. Together with a similar nuclear submarine "Bratsk", "Samara" was delivered to "Zvezdochka", where it was awaiting the start of repairs. By mid-2020, work on the submarine was already underway, the submarine was undergoing the first stage of modernization.

The Project 295 (Schuka-B) multipurpose nuclear submarine K-971 "Samara" was laid down on November 7, 1993 at the Amur shipyard in Komsomolsk-on-Amur and launched on August 5, 1994. It was accepted into the Navy on July 17, 1995 under the name "Dragon". The new name "Samara" was given on August 30, 1999.

    Quote from article - Project 971 "Samara" multipurpose nuclear submarine ("Schuka-B") will return into the combat strength of the Pacific Fleet in 2023.
    When this refers to the words of the source - Plannedthat the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center will complete the repair and modernization of Samara in 2023
    as if it will return and a little different concepts are planned, but still happy for the Pacific Fleet, albeit with a delay, or on time - these boats are very much needed!

      It is planned that it will be back in operation by this time. Is that okay for you?

      Too many submarines are being repaired and upgraded. And everything is planned by 23. Definitely half of the deadline will not be in time.

    Some time ago it was said that the Indians wanted to lease Samara. I am glad that the Navy did not agree to this.

      Indians want to give a fig, but they themselves write articles about Russia and China in the style of the American press and in general it seems that they finally and irrevocably fell under the United States, even if the Americans give them their Virginias on lease. Everyone is preparing for a conflict with Pakistan and China and thinks that the Americans will fit in for them.

    The grandmother said for two or don't say gop until you jump over, we know that some promises are put on repairs at 13, at 19 they say we will do this, at 20 they start, they would have done 50% then and said that this is how they say and so and so at a time like this

    It was nothing like the 90s, and the nuclear submarine was built and adopted in two years.

      Ratmir, you also noticed

      Yes, the results of propaganda work for 20 years. Everyone has forgotten how the ships were built in the 90s, and they think that now the fleet is being actively saturated with new ships and equipment.

      Rebuilding the fleet after the dashing nineties))

      25 years ago, the ships were first built (together with Samara, the fleet received 5 multipurpose submarines, over the last 7 years - 0). Secondly, the fleet more often went to sea because it included 10 times more ships. Where did they go then and why nothing was built to replace them ... what do you think?

        Well, no need to exaggerate, in the early 90s the ships were already built according to the developed projects back in the USSR, and today we are building ships on which everything is new.

        And there were more ships in the 90s due to the inheritance of this fleet from the USSR.

          The head and so far the only one in the Yasen, a promising type of SSNS for our Navy - bookmark 1993

          Head Boreas with a mace - 1996

          Does this mean that we are now continuing to build ships according to worked out projects from the USSR?

          Or were ships of new projects still being developed in the 90s?

            Ash was completely redone like Boreas.

              Wow. Therefore, you used sections of the unfinished 971x when building the Boreys?

              Ratmir, I am not defending the 90s. Our common problem is that they ended only in the episodes of Channel One. The obvious fact is that ships are being built less and less and they go out to sea less despite hurray! Hurray! sounding out of all irons

                The sections were used for the first 3 Boreys, and with 4 in the new building.

                And what of our underwater strategists was during the collapse of the USSR, useless Sharks and modest Dolphins.

                Ships today perform real combat missions in Syria, which was not the case in the 90s, and all delays in construction are due to the fact that now all projects of ships and submarines are new, new weapons systems, communications and radar, everything is new and all for the first time. except for "Varshavyanka", it is also stamped in series and also quickly, because everything has been worked out and adjusted, and with new projects everything is for the first time, so it takes so much time.

                And one more important point that many people overlook is that the price of a strong army and navy in the USSR is a shortage of everything, starting with toilet paper for the population, the shameful purchases of grain for Russia in the west, starting with Khrushchev, squandering the country's reserves and general poverty, and today in Russia for a family, an apartment on a mortgage, a few cars and trips abroad are not a luxury, but the norm of life, and the country has reserves of 600 billion dollars.

                Despite the fact that it was with the advent of Putin that we also paid off the debts to the USSR and those that we gained in the 90s. Although under the USSR and in the 90s Russia sold resources, and taking into account inflation in dollars, the price of oil today at $ 40 corresponds to the price of $ 18 in the 90s and $ 12 in the 80s.

    Moreover, they did not start repairs, and at 23 they will hand over for testing? it's good if in the end they don't drink at all, it's already the 7th year in Severodvinsk, it's worth it, it has just been tinted for now .. and most importantly, "there are no places" for the repair and construction of everything promised, well, no way, with all the desire, physically not. unfortunately .. why throw such obviously unrealizable news? for the negative? or to create the feeling that everything is about to happen, and after 2 years everyone will forget?
