The nuclear submarine strategic missile cruiser of project 955A (code Borey-A) Prince Vladimir will be transferred to the Russian Navy by the end of June 2020. This was reported by TASS with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.
According to the source, the submarine will go to sea one or two more times, after which it will be transferred to the Naval fleet. These outputs are necessary "to verify the functioning of nodes and systems" after eliminating a number of shortcomings identified during testing in 2019.
The head submarine of project 955A is planned to be transferred to the fleet before the end of the first half of the year, that is, until the end of June. Until this moment, she will at least once go to sea, perhaps even two to three times
