Russia’s Navy to receive 2nd Project 677 Lada-class diesel-electric submarine in 2019
 
The second Project 677 Lada-class diesel-electric submarine will be delivered to Russia’s Navy in 2019 rather than 2018, CEO of Russia’s Admiralty Wharves Shipyard Alexander Buzakov told TASS.

"The second submarine is planned to be delivered to the customer in 2019. As for the third submarine, everything will depend on financing," Buzakov said.

It still remains unknown whether a contract for the construction of the fourth Project 677 submarine will be signed, the CEO said. "We hope for this but there is nothing yet," he added.

As it was reported earlier, the second and the third Project 677 submarines Kronstadt and Velikiye Luki were expected to be delivered to the Navy in 2018 and 2019 and the contract for the construction of the fourth submarine was planned to be signed in 2018.

The Lada-class submarine is a fourth-generation diesel-electric submarine. It has a surface displacement of about 1,750 tons, while the Varshavyanka-class submarine’s surface displacement is 2,300 tons.

The Lada-class submarine has an underwater speed of 21 knots.
The new-generation submarine features a low noise level and a high degree of automation.
The submarine is armed with Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) cruise missiles.
The Project 677 lead submarine St. Petersburg was built by the Admiralty Wharves Shipyard in St. Petersburg in northwest Russia in 1997. It joined the Navy in 2010 and is still operational.
The submarines Kronstadt and Velikiye Luki were laid down in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
Their construction was suspended and then resumed only in 2013.
