MOSCOW, June 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The Borei-class strategic nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh has gone on sea trials in the White Sea, a source in the military-industrial complex said.
“Severodvinsk-based military shipyard Sevmash put the submarine on the two-week sea trials in the White Sea,” the source told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
“During the sea trials, the crew will check all warship systems, including navigation, radio-electronic systems and sailing features,” it said.
The head submarine Yuri Dolgoruky was brought into service of Russia’s Navy in 2012. The first serial warship Alexander Nevsky came into naval service in 2013. The fourth missile carrier Knyaz Vladimir will be laid down at Sevmarsh on July 19.
The Knyaz Oleg will be the first serial warship created under modernized project 955A.
Borei-class strategic missile-carrying nuclear submarines are designed at the St. Petersburg-based central maritime machinery design bureau. Their main weaponry is 16 new intercontinental ballistic missiles Bulava.
