MOSCOW, August 17 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Navy will welcome the newest strategic missile carrying submarine Yuri Dolgoruky into it in mid-September, a high-ranking representative of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The lead strategic nuclear-powered submarine of Project 955 “Borei”, the Yuri Dolgoruky, will join the Russian Navy in the middle of this September,” he said.
Sevmash started building the Yuri Dolgoruky in 1996. The construction of another two subs of the project, the Alexander Nevsky and the Vladimir Monomakh, began in 2004 and 2006. The Alexander Nevsky is taking sea trials and may be commissioned this year. The third submarine is still under construction.
The Russian Defense Ministry and defense plants signed three contracts in late May with regard to modernized strategic missile carrying submarines of Project 995A “Borei” with enhanced nuclear missile power – each of the five subs will be armed with 20 “Bulava” intercontinental ballistic missiles. There is a contract with the Rubin Central Naval Design Bureau to design the lead modernized “Borei” submarine, the Knyaz Vladimir. Sevmash will build the lead submarine. The United Shipbuilding Corporation will provide the construction of a series of four modernized “Borei” subs.
Sevmash started building the lead submarine of Project 995A, the Knyaz Vladimir, in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 30, 2012.
