"A decision on the shipbuilder will be made following the tender and considering the condition of the shipyard’s manufacturing facilities and experience of constructing diesel-electric submarines," the source added.

Head of the Navy’s Ship-Building Department Captain 1 Rank Vladimir Tryapichnikov said earlier that another series of Project 636.3 conventional submarines would be built for the Pacific Fleet. According to him, the submarines’ design will be improved and their construction will start in the imminent future.

However, the Russian Navy has not decided yet which shipyard will build six conventional submarines for the Pacific Fleet.

The Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarines are third-generation ships derived from the Project 877 and 636 diesel-electric designs. They have a low acoustic signature, a submerged speed of 20 knots, an endurance of 45 days, a total displacement of about 4,000 tons, and a complement of over 50. The Project 636.3 submarines feature the Kalibr missile system comprising 3M-54 and 3M-541 antiship and 3M-14 land-attack cruise missiles and advanced radio electronics as well.
