Let’s see where they design, build and repair ships and submarines. Zvezdochka is a large shipyard based in Severodvinsk, the Arkhangelsk Region. Let’s go check it out first.

“We are for the Fleet! We are for Russia!”
Right now, they are modernizing an Indian submarine. Modernization implies installation of a missile complex CLUB-S and India-designed hydroacoustic complex USHUS and radio communications system CCS-MK.
The submarine was renamed into S63 Sindurakshak in 1997.
