The Russian Defence Ministry has announced its success in testing the latest submarine in the Varshavyanka submarine series, nicknamed the “Black Hole,” known for its extended and deep submersion in ocean waters.
The new submarine, code-named “Mogaysk” uses diesel and electricity and has successfully passed a recent diving test, reaching a depth of 190 metres beneath the surface of the Baltic Sea.
During the recent test, technicians inspected the operation of all submarine systems and equipment, implementing various algorithms for the submarine’s operation at different depths and for its buoyancy towards the surface.
The significance of these submarines lies in their ability to emit extremely low levels of noise compared to other diesel submarines. They are also covered with special materials that make them difficult to detect, earning them the nickname “Black Hole submarines.”
