Delfin (Дельфин, Russian: "Dolphin") was the first Russian battle submarine.
She was designed by Naval architect Senior Assistant Ivan Grigoryevich Bubnov, Lieutenant M.N. Beklemishev and Lieutenant I.S. Goryunov of the Construction Commission for Submarines (later the Rubin Design Bureau), laid down by Baltic plant at St. Petersburg, launched in 1902, and entered service in 1903, training officers and sailors.
During World War I Delfin was transferred to Murmansk and served in Northern flotillia. In 1917 she was stricken and scrapped in 1920.
The centenary of Delfin’s sinking - the first Russian submarine accident - was marked by the St. Petersburg Submariners Club with wreath-laying, a mourning service, and by guards of honor and an orchestra marching at the Smolenskoye Orthodox cemetery.
