Russian Navy Waives Further Construction of Project 677 Lada Submarines

 

Russian Navy waives further construction of Project 677 Lada submarines; currently built subs will be upgraded, Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky told RIA Novosti.

Project Lada diesel electric submarines were designed late in XX century. Presently, none of them is in service; lead submarine of the project – SSK St. Petersburg – is under trial operation at Baltic Fleet.

“Russian Navy does not need Lada in current variant. We don’t need new ‘brains’ and arms mounted on past-age powerplant. Why? Who needs it? Moreover, operational features are also obsolete”, said the Navy CinC.
