MOSCOW, May 30. /ITAR-TASS/. A multipurpose Project 885 Yasen-class nuclear submarine which is planned to lay down in July will be named Krasnoyarsk, a source in the country’s defense and industrial complex told ITAR-TASS on Friday.“A Yasen-class submarine which is planned to lay down at Sevmash shipyard on July 19 will be named Krasnoyarsk,” the source said.
This submarine will become fourth and at the same time second serial submarine which is being built under modernized project 885M. New equipment will be mounted on these Yasen-class submarines and they will have a stronger signature.
The head Project 885 Yasen-class nuclear-powered submarine Severodvinsk was brought in pilot operation of Russia’s Navy on December 30, 2013. The submarine will be delivered to Russia’s Navy on June 17, 2014, the source told ITAR-TASS earlier in the day.
“The St. Andrew naval flag is planned to be hoisted on Severodvinsk on June 17. The flag-lifting ceremony will be held at the Sevmash shipyard,” the source said.
Second Yasen-class submarine Kazan was laid down in upgraded project 885M in 2009. Third submarine Novosibirsk was laid on July 26, 2013.
St. Petersburg maritime machine-building design bureau Malakhit has designed multipurpose Yasen-class nuclear submarines. For the first time in domestic shipbuilding torpedo launchers are placed not in the submarine nose, but behind the control post compartment that allowed mounting a new hydro-acoustic system aerial in the nose.
Yasen missile weaponry includes supersonic cruise missiles Oniks and Kaliber and universal deep-water homing torpedoes. The submarine has a surface water displacement of 8.6 thousand tonnes, an underwater displacement of 13.8 thousand tonnes, a length of 119 meters, a width of 13.5 meters. She has the maximum submersion depth of 600 meters and an underwater speed of around 30 knots (around 55.5 kph).
