MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. Russia’s Project 885 Yasen-class lead submarine Severodvinsk has completed operational trials will soon take the sea for combat training, Russia’s Northern Fleet Spokesman Vadim Serga told journalists on Saturday.
"Operations trials of the Severodvinsk submarine are over and the submarine is ready to fulfill its designated missions. The Severodvinsk’s crew is currently completing measures necessary to put the submarine into service and to take to sea for planned combat training sessions," he said.
He said the crew has fulfilled all elements of basic training. "The Severodvinsk multi-purpose submarine has completed operational trials, including deep submergences. The crew has drilled the skills to operate surfacing escape chamber," Serga said.
Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief Vice-Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov said on Friday the Yasen-class lead submarine Severodvinsk has completed operational trials.
The Project 885 nuclear-powered submarine Severodvinsk armed with missiles and torpedoes was laid down in 1993 and delivered to the Russian Armed Forces for operational evaluation in late 2013.
The next submarine Kazan is being built under the updated 885M project. It was laid down in 2009.
