MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. The second serially-built submarine of project 955A (Borey-A), The Generalissimus Suvorov, has completed a voyage from the White Sea to the Barents Sea, the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) told the media on Thursday.
"The cutting-edge nuclear submarine, The Generalissimus Suvorov, built by Sevmash under the Rubin design bureau’s Borey-A project, has completed a voyage from the White Sea to the Barents Sea," the USC said in a news release uploaded to its Telegram channel.
The submarine arrived at its berth at the main base of the Northern Fleet - the city of Severomorsk. After completing preparations, it will leave for its permanent Pacific Fleet base.
The Generalissimus Suvorov is a fourth generation nuclear-powered submarine of the upgraded Borey-A project (designed by the St. Petersburg-based Central Design Bureau of Marine Engineering Rubin). It is the second serially built submersible missile-carrying submarine of project 955A. It boasts fundamentally new engineering solutions, improved equipment, lower levels of physical fields and better security and meets tighter import substitution requirements.
The keel-laying ceremony took place at the Sevmash shipyard on December 26, 2014. The submarine was rolled out of the hangar on December 25, 2021. On December 29, 2022, it joined the Russian Navy.
