MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Russia’s diesel submarine Sankt Peterburg has carried out a missile launch in the Barents Sea, the Northern Fleet’s spokesman Captain 1st Class Vadim Serga said on Thursday.
"The diesel-electric submarine 'Saint Petersburg' has successfully carried a missile launch in accordance with the combat training schedule. The cruise missile was launched from an underwater position at a naval target," he said.
The area of missile launches in the Barents Sea was earlier closed to civilian shipping.
Seven naval and support ships of the Northern Fleet cordoned off the area to maintain the safety of shipping. Planes and helicopters were monitoring the situation in the area, he said.
The Saint Petersburg is a non-nuclear submarine of project 677, built at the Admiralty Shipyards in 1997 (displacement - 1,700 tonnes, length - 67 meters, width - 7 meters, underwater speed - 20 knots). The submarine is armed with torpedoes and missiles.
