MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. The Novorossiysk, Russia's new Project 636 (Varshavyanka) diesel-electric submarine has completed trials in the Northern Fleet and is ready to sail to the Black Sea to its permanent base, Northern Fleet acting spokesman, Captain 2nd Rank Andrei Luzik said on Tuesday.
The Novorossiysk submarine has completed its trials with a cruise missile launch from the Barents Sea against a target at the Chizha firing range in the Arkhangelsk region in north Russia, he said.
"Today the crew has completed a cycle of the ship’s basic preparation, replenished provisions and is fully prepared to make an inter-fleet passage from the Barents to the Black Sea to its permanent base in Novorossiysk," the spokesman said.
