Zvyozdochka Shipyard Upgrading Russian Navy Project 971 Akula-class Submarines

The Zvyozdochka Shipyard has been upgrading the Project 971 Shchuka-B-class (NATO reporting name: Akula I-class) nuclear-powered attack submarines, according to its press office. The Leopard nuclear attack submarine’s arrival to Zvyozdochka for repair in 2011 marked the era of the repair and modernization of the Project 971 boats. Today, the Volk, another ship of the class, operated by the Northern Fleet, is side by side with the Leopard in the shipyard. Their sister ships, the Bratsk and the Samara operated by the Pacific Fleet, are awaiting their turn.
