MOSCOW, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The lead fourth-generation multirole nuclear-powered submarine Severodvinsk of Project 885 ‘Yasen’ will undergo a state sea trial in November. A state commission may accept the submarine for serving the Navy in December, a source in the Government’s Military Industrial Commission told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Following the latest phase of seagoing tests, the submarine stays at the Svemash shipyard for adjustment of torpedo units. The fourth sea trial of the year is planned for mid-September. There will be state tests in November, and the state commission may accept the submarine in December,” he said.
“Three supersonic cruise missiles Caliber with the shooting range of more than 2,500 kilometers have been made for arming the Severodvinsk. Missiles can carry nuclear or conventional warheads and change their trajectory by altitude and vector while flying towards a sea-based or coastal target. The speed of the warhead increases after the separation and nears hypersonic. That is a high-precision super-quick weapon built mostly to fight aircraft carriers,” the source said.
In all, seven submarines of the Severodvinsk type will be constructed under the contracts the Defense Ministry has signed with the Unified Shipbuilding Corporation (USC). Six of them will belong to the modernized Project 885M. The lead submarine of that project, the Kazan, is under construction at Sevmash.
Sevmash is the largest shipbuilding enterprise in Russia and the only shipyard of the country, the main task of which is the construction of nuclear-powered submarines for the Navy. The enterprise, occupying the area of more than 300 hectares, has more than 100 subdivisions and over 25,000 employees. Civil production manufacturing is focused on the oil and gas projects on the Arctic offshore zone. More than 100 civil vessels of different classes and purposes have been built since 1990 (tugs, mini-bulk carriers, pontoons, barges, fish farms) for foreign customers.
