` High Combat State of Art Stealth Submarine Leaves for Trials and Will Eventually to Join Black Sea Fleet ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – May 30 – A new generation diesel-electric submarine Friday left St. Petersburg’s Admiralty shipyard for Baltic Sea trials.

(The new generation diesel-electric submarine Novorossiysk is an ultra-quiet, high combat capability vessel with a surface speed of 20 knots (37 kph), maximum submerged depth of around 300 meters and subsea displacement of around 4,000 tonnes)

The near-complete diesel-electric Novorossiysk will be at sea for less than a month and will return to base for final fitting ahead of joining the Black Sea naval fleet, a defence industry source told Itar-Tass on Friday.

Three-month mooring trials have already been completed.

Novorossiysk is the first in a series of 636.6 Varshavyanka Project vessels, Black Sea Fleet Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov told ITAR-TASS.

Six submarines of this class are planned for Black Sea duty and are aimed at building up the potential of Russia’s naval task force in the Mediterranean.
