The crew of the Project 636.3 Magadan diesel-electric submarine, being built at the Admiralty Shipyards, will arrive in St. Petersburg no later than April 30 to master the general ship systems and weapons systems of the submarine. The readiness to receive the crew was reported to the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

Currently, formed in the Pacific Fleet, the crew is completing a comprehensive training cycle at the Naval Training Center in Obninsk.

Diesel-electric submarine “Magadan” is at the berth of “Admiralty Shipyards” (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) at the stage of completion on the water, the installation of onboard equipment and life support systems is nearing completion.

For reference:

Earlier, on March 26, in St. Petersburg at the Admiralteiskie Verfi enterprise (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), a solemn ceremony of launching the newest large diesel-electric submarine Magadan of project 636.3, being built for the Russian Navy, took place.

On behalf of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, Vice-Admiral Igor Mukhametshin congratulated the participants of the ceremony – shipbuilders, designers, veterans of the Navy and the shipbuilding industry. The launch of another modern and reliable submarine Magadan is a significant event for the Russian Navy. The non-nuclear submarine component of the Pacific Fleet, which will soon be supplemented by the Magadan diesel-electric submarine, will be replenished with 6 units of this project by 2024 “Vice Admiral Igor Mukhametshin:

“The team of JSC“ Admiralty Shipyards ”has once again demonstrated its highest professionalism. I am sure that the construction of this series will be completed on time, and the ships that have become part of the Pacific Fleet will successfully solve all the tasks assigned to them, ”said the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.

The selfless work of all participants in the construction was noted by the General Director of the Admiralty Shipyards, Alexander Buzakov. He said that “Ahead of the submarine are mooring, factory and government tests. I would like to assure the command of the Navy that the shipyard collective is ready to create new series and new submarines. “

The ceremony of launching the newest large diesel-electric submarine “Magadan” was also attended by representatives of the Administration of St. Petersburg and Magadan, the management of the United Shipbuilding Corporation in the person of the chief adviser to the General Director of USC Viktor Chirkov.

During the ceremony, the godmother, in accordance with naval tradition, smashed a bottle of champagne on the hull of a submarine. The rector of the Nikolo-Epiphany Naval Cathedral, Archpriest Father Bogdan, blessed the crew of the submarine for successful accomplishments and conducted a divine service.

Magadan, the third submarine of the series being built at JSC Admiralty Shipyards for the Pacific Fleet, was laid down on November 1, 2019. The first ship, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, was handed over to the Russian Navy on November 25, 2019. The Volkhov submarine, the second in the series, entered the Pacific Fleet on October 24, 2020. The launch of the fourth Ufa submarine is scheduled for the end of this year.

The contract for the construction of the series was signed in September 2016, which was a continuation of the implementation of the long-term plan of the Russian Ministry of Defense to restore the combat readiness of the country’s Navy and the program to improve diesel-electric submarines.

Submarines of the modified 636 project have a higher (compared to previous projects) combat effectiveness. The world priority of ships of this class in the field of non-nuclear submarine shipbuilding is provided by: the optimal combination of acoustic stealth and target detection range, the latest inertial navigation system, a modern automated information control system, and powerful high-speed torpedo-missile weapons. Admiralty Shipyards are the undisputed leader in the construction of submarines of this class, and they also provide warranty and after-sales service.

Also at the Admiralty shipyards in just six years, from August 2010 to November 2016, a series of submarines of this project was built for the Black Sea Fleet. Since 2014, the enterprise has transferred two ships to the Russian Navy annually.

Tactical and technical characteristics of submarines of Project 636: navigation autonomy – 45 days, maximum immersion depth – 300 m; diving range at economical speed – 400 miles; cruising range in RDP mode with enhanced fuel reserve at a speed of 7 knots – 7,500 miles; surface displacement – 2,350 m³; number of torpedo tubes – 6. Submerged speed – 18 knots. Crew – 52 people.
