The third in a series of submarine submarines for the Black Sea Fleet – “Stary Oskol” – began the factory sea trials today, the source in the military-industrial complex said.
“Stary Oskol” went today to the factory sea trials in the Baltic Sea, which will last about 15-20 days,” the spokesman said.
In total the Black Sea Fleet must get six submarines of the project 636.3 (“Varshavyanka”), which are constructed at Admiralty Shipyards in St. Petersburg Project CDB “Rubin”. The first two boats, “Novorossiysk” and “Rostov-on-Don”, the military has received in the past year. The fourth one – “Krasnodar” – was launched in April and transferred to the Navy in November.
