Russia will resume series production of non-nuclear Project 677 Lada-class submarines, Navy chief Vice Adm. Viktor Chirkov said on Friday.

Construction of two Lada-class subs, the Sevastopol and the Kronshtadt, was frozen because of the project’s purported inefficiency.

Chirkov said the technical project has been adjusted and construction of the two subs will resume shortly.

The "fourth generation" diesel-electric submarine features quieter, new combat systems and air-independent propulsion.
