Russia to begin constructing Kalina submarine after 2020


The construction of new fifth-generation non-nuclear Kalina submarines equipped with air-independent propulsion systems will begin after 2020, a high-ranking Russian Navy source said Thursday.

“We are working on the Kalina project, and the first vessel will have its keel laid after 2020,” the source told RIA Novosti.

According to the source, anaerobic propulsion systems do not have enough capacity for the vessel’s engine yet.
