PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 30. /TASS/. The newest nuclear-powered submarine The Alexander Nevsky (project 955 Borei) has completed its voyage from the Northern Fleet to the Pacific Fleet and arrived in the port of Vilyuchinsk, in the Kamchatka Peninsula.
The Russian Navy commander, Admiral Viktor Chirkov, welcomed the submarine at the pier built especially for the submarine. Also present at the ceremony were the families of the submarine’s crewmembers, who made the voyage on board the sub.
The Alexander Nevsky was built in 2004. During the period of trials the submarine made twelve sea voyages. It is the first serially produced (second in line) strategic nuclear missile carrying submarine of Project 955 Borei. Its design incorporated the latest achievements in science and engineering reducing noise levels. The submarine is carrying a new generation missile complex armed with the inter-continental solid propellant ballistic missile Bulava.
