ARKHANGELSK, March 19. /TASS/. The fifth nuclear-powered multipurpose attack submarine of the Yasen class will be laid down today at the Sevmash shipbuilding company based in Severodvinsk, the company’s press service told TASS on Thursday.
The submarine, dubbed the Arkhangelsk, was designed by the St. Petersburg-based Malakhit company with the employment of novel technical decisions, the press service said.
The first Yasen-class submarine, the Severodvinsk, was built at Sevmash and handed to the Russian Armed Forces in June 2014.
"Multipurpose nuclear-powered submarines - Kazan, Novosibirsk and Krasonyarsk - are under construction at the Severodvinsk shipyard in the framework of the upgraded Yasen-M project. The changes are connected with the element base of the electronic weapons system, modernized equipment and materials, which will be supplied exclusively by Russian produces," the press service noted.
According to Russia’s naval doctrine, Yasen-class subs will become the main multipurpose nuclear-powered submarines in the Russian military. Sevmash will build eight Yasen-class subs with cruise missiles by 2020.
