PATRIOT PARK/Moscow Region/, June 16. /TASS/. The seventh Borey-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine will be laid down in late 2015, the director general of Russia’s Sevmash shipyard told TASS on Tuesday.
"This year, on December 21, a Borey project submarine is planned to be laid down," Mikhail Budnichenko said.
The Borey-class ballistic-missile submarines are to become the backbone of the Russian Navy's strategic nuclear deterrent for the next few decades. Eight such submarines are expected to be built up to 2020, and three of them have been already handed over to the Navy. The vessels will be armed with up to 16 Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missiles, which have range of over 8,000 kilometers.
The construction of the series now continues under the improved Borey-A project, and the first submarine of this class was Knyaz (Prince) Vladimir that was laid down in 2012. Last year, two submarines of the series - the Knyaz Oleg and the Generalissimo Suvorov - were laid down at the Sevmash shipyard, based in Severodvinsk, northern Russia.
