The Admiralty Shipyards (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) have completed state tests of a large diesel-electric submarine of Project 636 Magadan.

The third submarine of the series for the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation returned from the stage of state tests. During the week, the company’s specialists checked the operation of all ship devices, mechanisms and equipment, including hydroacoustic and navigation systems.

After completing the state testing program, Magadan will undergo revision and finishing at the enterprise.

“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 ship was laid down on November 1, 2019 and will be transferred to the Russian Navy by November 10, 2021.
