The Project 636.6 diesel-electric submarines are third-generation boats derived from the Project 636 diesel-electric design. They have a low acoustic signature, a submerged speed of 20 knots, a 45-day self-contained operation capability, a submerged displacement of about 4,000 tons, and a crew of over 50. The Project 636.6 submarines feature the Kalibr precision-guided missile system with the 3M-54 and 3M-541 antiship and 3M-14 land-attack cruise missiles and upgraded radio electronics.

Based on the official video, the new diesel-electric submarine B-237 "Rostov-on-Don" (Project 06363), launched four Kalibr-PL (3M-14K) land attack cruise missiles. This is the first known combat use of cruise missiles from a submarine of the Russian Navy.
