The second serial diesel-electric submarine "Velikie Luki" of project 677 "Lada" was launched in St. Petersburg

The second serial submarine "Velikiye Luki" of project 677 "Lada" was launched. The solemn ceremony was held at the shipbuilding enterprise "Admiralty Shipyards". This was reported by the press service of the CVD.


The Velikiye Luki diesel-electric submarine was laid down on November 10, 2006 under the name Sevastopol, but problems with this project led to the fact that the submarine was relaid in 2015 under the name Velikiye Luki according to a revised project, taking into account the trial operation of the lead submarine of the project " Saint Petersburg".

The first serial submarine of the Kronstadt project was launched in 2018, after which it was completed for three years, bringing it to factory sea trials at the end of 2021. The submarine is currently being prepared for state trials. The lead submarine of the St. Petersburg project became part of the Northern fleet in 2021, after 11 years in trial operation. Currently, two more diesel-electric submarines of project 677 are being built at the Admiralty Shipyards - Vologda and Yaroslavl. Both submarines were laid down on the same day in June of this year.

Unlike the lead submarine, which is armed only with mines and torpedoes, the Kronstadt and Velikiye Luki were armed with Caliber cruise missiles. In addition, both submarines are equipped with a new, more powerful and less noisy electric motor. Previously, it was planned to equip the submarines of this project with an air-independent (anaerobic) installation, but so far there have been no reports of the creation of VNEU.

It was the problems with the Lada project that led to the decision to build six Varshavyankas for the Pacific Fleet, although initially it was the Ladas with VNEU that were planned for the Far East.

    why do we need two boats "Great bows"? were there no other names?

      Indeed, why? Why do you need two? Why...

    In modern conditions, diesel-electric submarines without VNEU or energy-intensive batteries will have limited use - ambushes near their bases, perhaps. Any recharging from a diesel is a high risk of detection.

      Is it planned to patrol the diesel-electric submarines of the Pacific Ocean, instead of Ash? Or is it just the question of protecting native shores, especially in the Baltic, does the World Cup need hellish nuclear submarines? VNEU has not only advantages, a purely technological problem in the production of one cell of one battery and the whole boat, only throw wreaths into the water, there is no way to save it, you can’t put out lithium, it burns even more fun in water, it also burns without oxygen

    Vladimir Vysotsky, the former commander-in-chief of the Navy, said in 2012: “The declared technical characteristics of the Project 677 submarines are not confirmed on tests of the lead submarine Saint Petersburg. Russia does not need it. "

    Earlier, the Russian Navy planned to build 20 boats of Project 677, but the lack of an air-independent installation and a number of other problems led to the fleet abandoning Project 677. Only two already laid down boats will be completed - Kronstadt and Velikiye Luki. Moreover, these two boats will also be built without an air-independent installation (VNEU), as reported by the general director of the Admiralty Shipyards, Alexander Buzakov.

    Currently, two more diesel-electric submarines of project 677 are being built at the Admiralty Shipyards - Vologda and Yaroslavl. Both submarines were laid down on the same day in June of this year.

    Well, according to the principle - in the absence of a stamp, they write in simple. If our military-industrial complex is not able to give the army and navy what it needs, we have to drive at least something.

      In general, Project 677 is head and shoulders above the Warsaw in terms of the quality and capabilities of the HAC, acoustic visibility, and has a noticeably smaller crew. During trial operation, the head submarine of this type repeatedly established acoustic contact with enemy submarines and nuclear submarines from the mode of its own acoustic invisibility (including with the latest US Sea-Wolf submarines). Even without VNEU, these NNSs are capable of a lot in terms of protecting the naval base, ensuring the withdrawal of our submarines to the database, service in torrential zones, etc. And given that factories are now being built for the production of industrial batteries for vehicles and as industrial storage devices, it is not far off to equip these NNSs with high-capacity batteries, which will give them underwater autonomy of 20-30 days, which has already been proven by the latest Japanese Soryu NNSs . So, in any case, it is more rational to build now the NPL project 677 instead of "Warsaw".

    I watched an interview with the general designer, he, in particular, said that the delay in the construction of the Lada series, in the end, played a plus for her, since after the trial operation in St. Petersburg, the submarine project was very seriously rethought, adjusted and finalized.
    God grant that it be so.
    It is clear that everything related to the fleet, and especially submarines, is a secret with seven seals, and he could not say much, and was not going to, but some notes showing his satisfaction with the result were nevertheless visible.

      He and the fleet can have very different notes to satisfy. Their interests are different.

      The notes are visible.
      I remember positive in superlatives: a new word. Everything is new, a step into the future.
      Not fused.
      The chatter of the journalists turned out to be. Or is Rakhmanov alone again to blame?

    Yes, we have VNEU, for how many years, either the hands do not reach, or the mind is not enough! We got stuck on our own development of the ECG (hydrogen, necessary for the operation of VNEU, will be obtained directly on board by reforming the existing diesel fuel) from the Malachite Design Bureau and ... things are still there.

      So this reforming of diesel fuel is not a very simple matter, the multi-stage process takes place at high temperatures in the presence of catalysts, the output is 70-80% hydrogen, the rest is carbon dioxide, the resulting hydrogen must be purified to 99.99%, and carbon dioxide has to go somewhere and with all this you need a supply of liquid oxygen, all together like a mini chemical plant, which scares off many, although there is an alternative way to produce hydrogen on board a submarine is the hydrolysis of aluminum in water, water and aluminum (probably in granules) are required at the outlet hydrogen and aluminum oxide plus a lot of heat
