August 18, 2021 – “Until 2024, the Russian Navy plans to receive the entire series of 6 diesel-electric submarines of Project 636.3, which are being built at the Admiralty Shipyards, purposefully to equip the Submarine Forces of the Pacific Fleet. At present, the third submarine of this series, the Magadan, is undergoing state tests. These submarines have excellent stealth characteristics and are equipped with high-precision weapons, which allows them to effectively carry out tasks as intended, “- said the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, following a workshop that discussed issues of submarine shipbuilding.
On Monday, August 16, JSC Admiralty Shipyards (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) began state testing of a large diesel-electric submarine of Project 636 Magadan.
During the tests, the company’s specialists and the crew of the Magadan diesel-electric submarine will have to check the operation of all ship devices, mechanisms and equipment, including hydroacoustic and navigation systems. In the course of the test program, the submarine will also perform deep-sea diving, and the ship’s controllability will be assessed at different sailing depths. After completing the state testing program, Magadan will return to the enterprise, where it will undergo revision and finishing.
“Magadan” – the third submarine of the series for the Pacific Fleet, launched on March 26 this year in a high, 91%, degree of readiness. The submarine was laid down on November 1, 2019 and will be transferred to the Russian Navy in November 2021.
