    Well, according to the plan, such 4 should be built (one for each fleet), so if the tests are successful, we are waiting for new tabs.

      The ship of the project 21300 is the only one, and so far new ones are not being contracted, let alone being built. Rogozin in 2013 spoke about the series, but at the same time said that by the end of 2014 the lead one would be accepted into the Navy (which has not happened even now - the ship is undergoing tests). Then everything died out with a new contract.

    Interesting news. But most of all I liked the condition of the ship. clearly well-groomed, a trifle, but nice.

    The underwater vehicle is specially designed to carry out the full range of underwater technical works (PTR), including without the use of divers, during the construction and maintenance of drilling and production platforms, and the laying of pipelines. Something tells me. Manufacturing and testing was paid for (not a well-known company) for itself, and not for the Navy. I'm not happy.

    The fact that the required number of pieces will go to the company. They will leave a couple of used pieces for paying for the tests. They just lie in the warehouse.
