  • Russian Lada-class Submarine

    A Lada submarine can remain submerged for 25 days with its new air-independent propulsion. The Lada is also the first non-nuclear sub to be equipped with specialized launchers for cruise missiles.






    The stealth capabilities of Russia’s new Lada-class diesel-electric submarines far exceed those of their predecessors, Admiraty Shipyard’s CEO Alexander Buzakov told the Russian press.

    According to Buzakov, the new vessels are even stealthier than Russian Kilo-class submarines, thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world and dubbed "black holes" for their ability to "disappear” from sonars.

    The new submarines are able to maintain such a low profile thanks to a clever implementation of a next-generation anti-reflective acoustic coating and a new improved hydro-acoustic system, Buzakov said.

        Oh I was going to poke at the name first thing; looks like I was too slow.

          Not the first non-nuke with specialised launchers, that award goes to the Whiskey-class (projekt 644) back in the 1950s.

          The Lada has been dormant for some time now since failing its sea trials in 2010 and being deselected for service, looks like someone is looking for some +ve press releases.
