A Russian biggest shipbuilder is planning to hand over two nuclear-powered submarines to the Russian Navy next year.

A source close to the Russian defense ministry says that both submarines will enter service with the Pacific Fleet.

“The current plans for 2022 envisage the transfer of one strategic [submarine] – the Generalissimus Suvorov missile-carrying submarine [of the Borei-A class] and one attack [submarine], the Krasnoyarsk multipurpose submarine [of the Yasen-M class],” the source said.

The modern Russian Borei nuclear ballistic missile submarine, or SSBN, was conceived as a replacement to the aging Delta and Typhoon strategic submarine lines.

According to TASS, Borei-and Borei-A-class submarines have been developed by the Rubin Central Design Bureau of Marine Engineering. They carry 16 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles and are outfitted with 533mm torpedo tubes.

The Yasen-M is a new line of nuclear-powered cruise missile submarines, designed to phase out Russia’s aging, Soviet-era attack submarines. The submarines can be deployed in anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, surveillance operations and special missions.

ברור לי שלכל אדם יש עמדה פוליטית כזו או אחרת ואני מאמין שלא ניתן להימנע מזה גם באתר הזה, אבל דעות פוליטיות לא יכוונו את רוח הדברים באתר זה.
