"The delivery schedule for the six subs is as follows: two in 2019, two in 2020 and two in 2021," he said.
On September 7, the Russian Defense Ministry and Admiralty Shipyards signed a contract for a series of submarines in a ceremony held as part of the Army 2016 forum.

Previously, the order was expected to be split between the Admiralty Shipyards and Amur Shipyard in the Russian Far East. Then, the United Shipbuilding Corporation said all of the submarines would be built in St. Petersburg.

A six-ship Project 636.3 series has been built for the Black Sea Fleet. The fifth and sixth submarines of the series are due to the Russian Navy’s inventory before year-end 2016.
