The Russian Navy will receive two Borei-class strategic nuclear submarines of the fourth generation, the Vladimir Monomakh and the Alexander Nevsky, in 2015, according to the Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu. Two more Borei-class submarines are being made now under the 955A project. They will be called Knyaz Vladimir and Knyaz Oleg ('knyaz' is prince in Russian). Russian fourth-generation submarines and their characteristics - in photo gallery by TASS
