Dear submarine fleet in Australia

October 19, 2011Not so long ago, the Australians found themselves with fear that their 3,000-ton diesel-electric submarines of the class Collins expensive to maintain and operate than some of the larger U.S. nuclear submarines. Operation and service of each of the six class submarines Collins the currently manages more than $ 100 million a year. It costs more than the service of some of the American Boat (6000-ton Los Angeles and 7800-ton Virginia class, and even more submarines carrying ballistic missiles).

Diesel-electric submarines of Project 877 Halibut

In 1970 it was decided to make the Navy diesel-electric submarines of the last generation who needed to act against submarines and surface ships, to put minefields, conduct reconnaissance. Submarines should be comparable to small, high-speed, low noise, own perfect radio, sonar, and electrical equipment. Since these submarines were going to supply the allies in the Warsaw Pact, except the ordinary project number — 877, she was given a proper name — "Varshavyanka."
