Nuclear Cruiser of New Generation

While the testing of “Severodvinsk” nuclear cruiser is about to finish, many experts believe that Russia has got the superior position in the development of submarine technologies.

The Russian submarine may hit enemy ships, other submarines and shore targets. It will start to operate in the Arctic soon.

This project was launched in the 70s.

Many technologies applied for this submarine are unknown in the west.

The construction of the submarine started in 1993 and was first planned to be launched in 1998. However budgetary problems delayed the construction for years, and it was only launched on 15 June 2010.

Severodvinsk was put in service late December of 2013.

  1. So, what are pictures of a US Virginia class submarine doing here? I knew something was strange when I saw the US Navy uniforms and the US flag on the side of the sub.

  2. Why include fotos of an American sub’s crew, an American sub and a Virginia Class poster? I hope the Severodvinsk does not sink like the Kursk.

  3. You might want to check your photos guys; the last few pics are of U.S. subs. The American flag on the one sub and Latin alphabet in the other photos is sort of a dead giveaway.

  4. That,s more like it. BUT remove the american sub pictures. After the CHAOS they create WE don,t want to SEE them. And how about dept charges planted on the seebed in depts of 1 a 2 kilometers and come up when they detect a vessel or sub, via sound or satellite. As modern subs can dive 400 meters or a bit more you can be sure of that to.

  5. I love submarines, so happy that Mother Russia updating its inventory. Amazing how stuff made in former soviet Russia was built to last for decades

  6. photo with U.S. submarines for comparison, personally, I don’t know anything about this boat, even the number of torpedo tubes to the General public is not known… Taking into account developments K-278 Komsomolets think it is constructed of titanium and is capable of diving to a depth of more than 1 kilometer…..

  7. Yes. Silly mistakes there re the Virginia class sub. Last pic was an old ‘Typhoon’, too, i think. Hey, JEAN, you know what we really don’t want to see – pointless use of capital letters.

  8. Igor, while I read your blog quite often for its great insights into Russian Society, I cannot agree with your assessment of the Severodinsk (Project 885). Especially your contention that “many experts believe that Russia has got the superior position in the development of submarine technologies”. Here is a fact — Project 885 was designed during the time of the Soviet Union, construction was begun in 1993, and it is only now is becoming operational. That is a 20 year time span to build and launch one submarine. I mean, think of the changes in technologies in any industry over 20 years of evolution. As a contrast, the US Virginia Class SSN’s which you also picture, take approximately 3 years to construct and launch.

    Best regards on your work otherwise

  9. Ok, last two photos – not a russian sub. At least due to our consoles don’t have a pile of ugly bolts on the front panels).. And the red colour in GUI – this is something beyond good and evil ))
