The World War II Soviet submarine L-3 belonged to the L-class or Leninets class of minelayer submarines. It had been named Frunzenets before it was decided that submarines should stop having names and carry numbers instead.

Under Captain 3rd Rank Vladimir Konovalov, L-3 was one of the most successful Soviet submarines of World War II. On 16 April 1945, it sank the German refugee transport "Goyamarker, an event that (if calculated by loss of life) is deemed to be one of the worst marine disaster ever, when 6,000 to 7,000 people died in the icy waters of the Baltic Seamarker.

After the dismantling of the submarine, part of it was used as monument in Liepājamarker, though in 1995 the monument was relocated to Moscow. Today, part of L-3 is on display in Moscowmarker as a monument in Park Pobedy ("Victory Park") at Poklonnaya Goramarker.
