In honor of the Day of the Submariner, the crew of the Black Sea Fleet submarine “Kolpino” of project 636.3 sang the song “Tired Submarine” while on alert under water.

In the period from 2014 to 2017, the Black Sea Fleet was replenished with six new diesel submarines of Project 636.3 – carriers of the Kalibr cruise missile complex.

The effectiveness of the Black Sea Fleet’s submarine forces has been proven in practice, including during the operation to combat international terrorism in the Syrian Arab Republic and the execution of live firing of the Caliber-PL sea-launched cruise missile complex at terrorist targets.

Today in Sevastopol, at the memorial to the Black Sea submariners, celebrations are being held dedicated to the 115th anniversary of the creation of the Russian submarine forces.

As part of the celebrations, Vice Admiral Igor Osipov, Commander of the Black Sea Fleet, submariners and veterans of the submarine fleet will lay wreaths and flowers at the memorial complex “Knights of the Black Sea Depths” in Sevastopol.

At present, the crews of the Black Sea Fleet submarines are performing combat training missions in the fleet’s zone of responsibility, both in the near and far sea zones.
