Russia’s Project 636 submarines tests completed


Six Project 636.3 Varshavyanka diesel-electric submarines that will sequentially join the Russian Black Sea Fleet will help revive full-fledged submarine forces in Novorossiysk already next year, Russia’s Navy Commander-in-Chief, Admiral Viktor Chirkov said on Monday.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, in 2015 both ships will arrive in their permanent base in the city of Novorossiysk.

“Currently, the first two diesel-electric submarines of Project 636 — Novorossiysk and Rostov-on-Don – have completed preparations for the transition to the Black Sea Fleet after successful completion of the program of the weapons systems tests in the Northern Fleet,” the statement reads.
