The Northern Fleet will arm itself with a series of "silent" submarines

At the Admiralty Shipyards in St. Petersburg, it is planned to build 6 diesel-electric submarines of project 636.3 Varshavyanka for the Northern Fleet.

Recall that the submarine of this project called Rostov-on-Don became the first submarine to use Caliber cruise missiles from a submerged position in December 2015. As a result of the application, it was officially announced that this precision-guided weapon can be equipped with nuclear warheads. The latter fact then greatly worried the members of the North Atlantic Alliance.

However, it should be noted that NATO's concern was due not only to the destructive potential of the Caliber, but also to the peculiarities of the Varshavyanka themselves.

The thing is that this submarine has impressive characteristics in terms of stealth. In fact, it is able to quietly bypass the enemy’s defense lines and deliver a surprise strike.

In fact, the above-described capabilities of the diesel-electric submarines of the project were demonstrated in the spring of 2021, when the very same Rostov-on-Don submarine, which the United States and Israel carefully monitored in the Mediterranean Sea, disappeared from their radars for a whole week. At the same time, our submarine did not interrupt communication with the Russian command for a minute.

It is worth adding that in the Western press our "Varshavyanka" was nicknamed the "black hole" for its noiselessness. When driving on low-speed electric motors, Project 636.3 submarines do not exceed the background noise of the sea, which allows them to detect a target at a distance 3-4 times greater than that which allows them to detect themselves.

    Scheduled... Haven't even started work. And there are no deadlines.
    It's a shame, however - they could have planned at least 18 boats. Well, this is three times the propaganda effect.

    more submarines of all types are needed, this is the future of the fleet, it is the right decision to send from not to the narrow shallow Baltic, where they will be calculated and destroyed, but to the north, where they will cover the SSBNs and solve many problems

    In words, they are arming everywhere and ahead of the rest, but in reality it turned out that there was no Black Sea fleet, the Khokhols burned the frigate "Moscow" from their home-made ones and this was the last thing, even the American Hamers couldn't figure it out even without long-range missiles, and when they give them to ukrokaklam and they will easily shy away from Moscow, but of course, as always, we will express concern through the diplomatic line, to the laughter of all Western idiots, and finally give them gas to the fullest and on the cheap, like in the good old days! And our glamorous ones will flow again along the Radiant Shores and Nice!
  4. A completely useless pelvis - why the hell do you need to covertly deliver missiles if they fly by themselves? As? To rip off shoulder straps? We will punish OTAN with hypersonic missiles launched from Ryazan, and eyeliners - in RECOVERY RAW (or sell blacks)!
    And then you see, the gold-chasers have eaten hari, and they are fooling Putin with their steamboats!
    Vaughn, Khreiser Podmoskovye Evenings drowned Harpoon with a pair of missiles! And BILLIONS gurgled to the bottom!
    Don't trust steamers, Vladimir Vladimirovich! Drive them in the neck - we DO NOT NEED THE MILITARY FLEET anymore !!!!!
