Russian submarine Vladikavkaz to resume service by year-end


The diesel-electric submarine Vladikavkaz, now under repair at the Zvezdochka Shipyard in the northern Russian port of Severodvinsk, is set to rejoin Russia’s active naval forces by the end of 2015, Tass news agency quoted the shipyard’s press service as confirming Monday.

After arriving in Severodvinsk in 2008 for routine maintenance and system upgrades, the Vladikavkaz is finally set to return to open-sea testing in the White Sea in the early summer before resuming service later in the year.

The relaunch of the Vladikavkaz has also coincided with 60th birthday celebrations for the Zvezdochka Shipyard, a leading center of Soviet and now Russian naval innovation.
