ARKHANGELSK, August 11 /TASS/. The Podmoskovye nuclear-powered submarine was launched on Tuesday after undergoing repairs and modernization at the Zvezdochka shipyard in northern Russia, the shipyard’s press service reported.
The submarine will undergo harbor and sea trials after the launch, Zvezdochka’s employees said.
The Podmoskovye nuclear-powered submarine (project 667BDRM) was commissioned late in 1986. According to open sources, the ship was sent to the Zvezdochka shipyard in 1999 for conversion into a special purpose submarine.
The Russian Navy has another six project 667BDRM submarines armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles.
