Russian submarine K-336 Pskov Russian: Псков) is a Sierra-class attack submarine of the Russian Navy. She is named after the Russian city Pskov.

History

This ship, originally named Okun (Perch), was laid down as the last Sierra-II class submarine in 1990 at the Krasnoye Soromovo factory in Nizhny Novgorod. After the hull was launched in 1992, it was towed to the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk for completion and sea trials.

The boat was commissioned in 1993, serving in the Russian Northern Fleet and based in Ara Bay, Vidyaevo.

On March 5, 2003, the Pskov was being overhauled in a dry dock in Roslyakovo. The wood scaffolding surrounding the hull was ignited by the welding work that was done to the ship, and a fire broke out. After 90 minutes, the fire was put out, and the Pskov's outer soundproofing rubber coating was damaged. There were no casualties or radiation leakage. The submarine is believed to be operational since early 2007.
