The Return of Kaluga

25
The composition of the naval fleet After the modernization, the diesel-electric submarine Kaluga returned to Russia. She became the first non-nuclear submarine in 20 years, which was repaired by shipbuilders of Severodvinsk. The service life of the submarine is extended until 2023, and on Thursday she will go to the base of the Northern Fleet.


Kaluga "is one of the quietest Russian submarines. He also has other advantages that sailors celebrate. The commander of a diesel-electric submarine, Oleg Mikholap, notes:" The boat showed itself quite well, especially in winter, when we entered the port of Severodvinsk. Despite the fact that the ice was thick 2-30 centimeters, she received no damage. This is a very reliable and good ship. "

Submarine Kaluga arrived in Severodvinsk for repairs back in the 2002 year, but due to the lack of funds to work on it, it began only in the 2010 year. Now the plant is upgrading another diesel submarine, the Vladikavkaz.

    Such boats are a huge smut for the enemy. It’s somehow used to that the most important thing is nuclear missile carriers, but such a Kaluga will not only send the missile carrier to the bottom, but also leave unnoticed. Good news.

        I am glad that the fleet is replenished, albeit with modernized submarines, we have no time for fat. But it is annoying that everything is done very slowly, and I just want to "give acceleration".

      It is only depressing that 11 years have been deleted from the active life of the boat, and there are no perpetrators.

        There was no money to repair and modernize not only the fleet, but also in other sectors of the Russian economy. There really are no guilty ones. Let's say "thank you" for all this to our former president, for whom they "gloated with their hearts" - Yeltsin.

      Let your words be to God’s ears, I hope Vladikavkaz will not be repaired for 11 years.

      There was no money? Excuses. To introduce a progressive income tax to billionaires, and not 13%, and money would be enough for ALL the needs of the Armed Forces.

    The good news is that the news from the category - "done". And not, as often happens, "to be done." This is exactly how it is necessary to communicate in the present tense.

    Modernization, in contrast to major repairs, implies an improvement in the available characteristics. The boat was excellent before that, I wonder what it was possible to improve.

    Despite the fact that the ice was 2-30 centimeters thick, it received no damage.

    In the Northern Fleet, Kaluga, in addition to the enemy, will also resist ice.

    cheap and very angry. More would be so small and elusive that all aircraft carriers would anchor in their ports.

      A pair of sharks are capable of destroying a huge whale, and a pair of diesels is a huge threat to Ohio in the near borders. In the blue sea, like in a pharmacy, everything has essence and weight .... hi

    Great news. This is truly a headache for the enemy - small nimble diesel boats.

    "Vladikavkaz" has long been out of business. The ship repairers will have to tinker with it!

    With such a pace of restoration, we will not soon see the Vladikavkaz in service. Well, if in four years. In the USSR, during this time, several new ones were put into operation.

      In the USSR, 2-4 submarines were commissioned annually.

    More confiscations and seizures of foreign accounts and real estate of government thieves and it will be possible to upgrade three boats a year, and not one every three years!

    Our leadership has, it seems to me, an easier way, the state monopoly on the sale of wine and vodka. Why is this money given to no one knows? Both the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union did not refuse this income item.

    It is enough for the state to introduce a monopoly on the sale of wine-vodka and money will appear. The Russian Empire and the Soviet Union earned a lot of money from this.
