The Russian Navy will commission the Project 636.3 Magadan diesel-electric submarine on October 12, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on Tuesday.

“Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov, Commander of the Russian Navy, confirmed the date for the Project 636.3 Magadan diesel-electric submarine’s commissioning. On October 12, there will be a flag-raising and commissioning ceremony “According to the Ministry.

The state trials of “Magadan”, the Project 636.3 third diesel-electric submarine built for Russia’s Pacific Fleet, was conducted at the Admiralty Shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) in August 2021.

The submarine carried out deep diving to assess the vessel’s control at various operational depths. After completing the state program of trials, the submarine Magadan returned to the Shipyard for final inspections.

The Magadan is the series’ third submarine. It was established on November 1, 2019, and it was launched on March 26 of this year at a high (91 percent) completion state. The contract for the building of the six-submarine series was signed in September 2016.

The Project 636.3 submarines are thought to be among the quietest in the world. Their length is 74 meters, with a displacement of nearly 3,900 tons; their design depth is 240 meters, their maximum working depth is 300 meters, and their range is 7,500 miles.
