PARK PATRIOT (Moscow region), June 16. /TASS/. The project to build a series of 7 Yasen class nuclear submarines will be completed after 2023, CEO of the St. Petersburg-based Malakhit Marine Engineering Design Bureau Vladimir Dorofeyev told TASS on Tuesday.
According to previous reports, the state armaments program for the period until 2020 envisaged construction of 8 Yasen class submarines. In addition, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Viktor Chirkov said that after that the series would be continued.
"In accordance with the state armaments program, the project to build a series of 7 submarines will be completed after 2023," Dorofeyev said.
The Yasen class multipurpose nuclear submarines were developed by the Malakhit Design Bureau. The first submarine of the class - the Severodvinsk, which was laid down in 1993, went into service within operational testing with the Russian Navy in late 2013.
In 2012, the Severodvinsk fired the newest supersonic cruise missile five times. The submerged submarine fired the newest supersonic cruise missile at a surface target from the White Sea in five successive successful launches as part of the Calibre rocket system tests.
The Severodvinsk is the first in the Graney class (Yasen in Russian classification) of nuclear powered attack submarines. Severodvinsk is the 131st nuclear submarine built by Sevmash Shipyard for the Navy. Vessels of the Yasen class will be the world’s stealthiest submarines. They will have a maximum speed of 16 knots surfaced and 31 knots submerged. They will be 119m long, 13.5m wide and 9.4m high. According to Russia’s Naval Doctrine, submarines of this class will become the main multipurpose nuclear vehicles in the Navy.
