ARKHANGELSK, September 9 (Itar-Tass) - Another stage of testing a nuclear powered submarine of the new generation The Aleksandr Nevsky is over, press service of the Sevmash defense shipyard, which built the nuclear-powered ship, said on Monday.
During a week in the White Sea the submarine’s all systems and weapons were being tested.
“The objectives the ship had were completed successfully,” Sevmash’s Acting CEO Sergei Marichev said. “We have completed tests of the military hardware. Everything was done normally. The crew fulfilled all the time norms for giving and implementation of fighting management.”
“On Friday, the strategic nuclear powered submarine Aleksandr Nevsky fired a Bulava inter-continental missile from the White Sea at the Kura test range in the Kamchatka Peninsula. The missile left the launch container normally, but its onboard system failed during the second minute in flight,” a Defense Ministry spokesman told the media on Saturday.
According to the official Shoigu made a decision to suspend the certification tests of The Aleksandr Nevsky and The Vladimir Monomakh submarines and to make five extra launches of the Bulava missile in order to verify its technical parameters.
“A commission under the Russian Navy’s Commander-in-Chief, Admiral Vladimir Chirkov, is looking into the causes of the Bulava missile’s failed launch,” the Defense Ministry’s spokesman has said.
