November 25, 2019 (Google Translation) – Today, in St. Petersburg, at the Admiralty Shipyards shipyard, a ceremony was held for the acceptance of the first diesel-electric submarine Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky of project 636.3 into the Russian Navy. By order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, the submarine was accepted into the Navy and will replenish the connection of submarines of the Pacific Fleet. Andreevsky flag was solemnly raised on the boat.

The Admiral Andrei Volozhinsky, Chief of the General Staff of the Navy of Russia, took part in the ceremony of admission to the Navy DEPL Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky; he, on behalf of the Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, congratulated the submarine commander and crew on this significant event and thanked the shipbuilders Admiralty Shipyards ”for the effective work on the serial construction of nuclear submarines for submarine forces of the Russian Navy.

On this day, submariners and shipbuilders were congratulated by the Director General of Admiralty Shipyards JSC Alexander Buzakov and the Director General of the Rubin Central Design Bureau Igor Vilnit.

In their speeches, they emphasized that the Project 636.3 series of submarines for the Pacific Fleet would be even more advanced in a number of ways.

The captain of the 3rd rank captain Anton Yusupov, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky diesel-electric submarine’s commander, noted that “the submarine’s crew received excellent comprehensive training at the Navy’s training center, efficiently and professionally provided all stages of the diesel-electric submarine’s tests and is ready to continue serving as part of the Pacific Fleet’s submarine forces.”

When training the crew, the most advanced training complexes were used, which made it possible to prepare the personnel of both individual combat units for performing missions for their intended purpose, and naval combat crews for operating torpedo and missile weapons.

The submarine has successfully completed sea trials and state tests in the waters of the Baltic Fleet, confirming all the design characteristics incorporated into it.

In the Admiralty at a workshop under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, the results of state tests of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky diesel-electric missile defense (project 636.3) were examined. It was noted that the submarine confirmed all the declared tactical and technical characteristics by completing the test program, including the planned dives.

“In a series of non-nuclear submarines of Project 636.3, being built for the submarine forces of the Pacific Fleet, new technical solutions are being implemented for a number of life support systems and radio-technical weapons. The main feature of the first Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky diesel-electric submarine and other submarines of this series for the Pacific Fleet is that they are built taking into account the specifics of their operation in the marine zone of the Far East, ”Admiral Nikolai Evmenov said earlier at the meeting on the eve of the reception of diesel-electric submarines“ Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky ”as part of the Navy.
