Russia’s Krasnoyarsk nuclear sub heads out for first sea trials, source says

The work of onboard equipment will be checked at sea

MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. The Krasnoyarsk, Russia’s second serial submarine of project 885M, currently under construction at the country’s largest shipyard in Severodvinsk, set out for its first sea trails in the White Sea on Sunday, an industry source told.

"On June 26, the Krasnoyarsk sub left Sevmash shipyard for the first sea trials in the White Sea. Its onboard equipment and compliance of its seaworthiness and performance characteristics with the designed parameters will be tested at sea," the source said.

After that, he said, the Krasnoyarsk sub will undergo a federal test where all of its weapons will be evaluated in practice.

The press service of Sevmash refused to comment for TASS.

In early February, a source told TASS the sub would enter the shipbuilder’s trials in early June.

The Krasnoyarsk is the Project 885M (Yasen-M) second serial-built and third-constructed submarine that was laid down in 2014. The submarine cruiser was rolled out from the slipway and put afloat on July 30, 2021.
