The United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) plans to transfer five new submarines to the Russian Navy this year – two nuclear and three diesel, USC head Alexei Rakhmanov said in an interview with Interfax.
Sevmash and Admiralty Shipyards will hand over two nuclear and three diesel-electric submarines to the fleet,” Rakhmanov said.
Last December, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that in 2023 it is planned to adopt the strategic nuclear submarine of the Borey-A project, Emperor Alexander III. Also earlier it was reported about plans to transfer this year to the military a multipurpose nuclear submarine of the Yasen-M project “Krasnoyarsk”. The submarines of this project are being built by Sevmash.
The Admiralty Shipyards are building a series of Project 636.3 diesel submarines for the Pacific Fleet. “By 2024, the Russian Navy plans to receive the entire series of six diesel-electric submarines of the 636.3 project, which are being built at the Admiralty Shipyards purposefully to equip the submarine forces of the Pacific Fleet,” said Navy Commander-in-Chief Nikolai Evmenov.
Rakhmanov said in an interview with Interfax that this year USC handed over two ships to the Navy – after repairs at the Baltic shipyard “Yantar”, the patrol ship “Fearless” and built at the “Severnaya Verf” new corvette “Mercury”.
“We expect to soon transfer the frigate Admiral Golovko, built at the Severnaya Verf, and the corvette Sharp, built at the Amur Shipyard,” the head of USC said.
According to him, the Kronstadt Marine Plant will hand over the repaired large landing ship Alexander Shabalin.
