Russian diesel submarine Stary Oskol - making transition to a permanent basing site of the Black Sea Fleet - passed through the Bosporus and Dardanelles and entered the Black Sea, the press service of the Russian Black Sea Fleet reports.
Equipped with cruise missiles "Caliber-PL," the submarine made transition from the Northern Fleet to the Black Sea Fleet. The passage was watched over by a Turkish escort ship and patrol boat.
“Having successfully passed the state testing program and being included in the Navy in June 2015, the newest diesel submarine Stary Oskol passed through the Bosporus and Dardanelles and entered the Black Sea making transition from the Northern Fleet to its permanent basing site of the Black Sea Fleet,” says the report of Russian navy’s press service.
Stary Oskol is the third diesel-electric submarine of project 636.3, built at the Admiralty Verfi Shipyards in St. Petersburg for the Black Sea Fleet.
This submarine project belongs to the third generation of diesel submarines, which are among the most low-noise compared with their analogues in foreign Navy. The submarines have also a higher combat effectiveness compared to previous Russian projects, as well as the newest rocket systems, torpedoes, underwater acoustics and electronics.
