    Diesel-electric submarine named Magadan joins the fleet of RF Navy

    Admiralteiskie Verfi shipyard (a company of United Shipbuilding Corporation) says a flag-raising ceremony has been held on the third diesel-electric submarine of Project 636.3 today, 12 October 2021.  

    With the hoisting of the St. Andrew's flag, the submarine named Magadan joins the fleet of RF Navy.

    Aleksandr Buzakov, General Director of Admiralteiskie Verfi, commented: “Diesel-electric submarine Magadan was laid down in November 2019. Less than two years had passed before we raised the flag on it.  That is a good pace to be kept by the Admiralteiskie Verfi shipbuilders for the entire series being built for the Pacific Fleet”..

    The Magadan intended for the Pacific Fleet of RF Navy is the third submarine in the series. It was laid down on 1 November 2019 and launched on 26 March 2021. The state trials were completed in the end of August with the test completion certificate signed on October 5.  

    The contract for the Kilo-class submarine series was signed in September 2016 as part of the long-term plan of the Russian Ministry of Defense to strengthen the combat readiness of the Russian Navy and the programme for improving diesel-electric submarines. The contract implementation nears completion.

    The first Project 636.3 Kilo-class SSK, the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, was officially delivered to the Russian Navy on November 25, 2019.
