"Different types of submarines": Forbes appreciated the renewal of the Russian submarine fleet


Russia and the United States have completely different approaches to equipping their fleets with submarines. Currently, the US Navy is building only one type of submarine class Virginia. In October, shipyards will begin laying submarines with ballistic missiles of the Columbia project, which will make the program for the construction of submarines double-type. At the same time, the Russian Federation is simultaneously building six different classes of submarines.


Despite budgetary difficulties and the delays caused by them, Russia is investing heavily in submarines. Together, these six types represent the greatest modernization [of the underwater fleet] since the cold war

- writes Forbes.

According to the publication, Russia traditionally has several types of submarines in service, each of which has a specific role. With the restoration of shipbuilding now being observed, a new fleet renewal program was launched, which inherited the former Soviet approach.

Russian shipyards produce submarines of project 955A Borey. It is expected that following the recently handed over to the Navy, Prince Vladimir, six more will be built, forming the basis of Russia's naval nuclear deterrence for the coming decades. Each submarine can carry 16 Bulava ICBMs.

After the famous Typhoon [Shark] class, Belgorod special-purpose submarines will be by far the largest submarine in the world. At the same time, according to Forbes, this giant does not lend itself to classification, being both a “special purpose” scout and a carrier of strategic weapons "Poseidon". Transported by "Belgorod" "Losharik" is able to interrupt cable communications laid along the seabed. The unique Poseidon nuclear torpedo is able to break through missile defense systems and seems to be the weapon of the second strike at the Day of Judgment.


Submarine type "Shark"


The strategic submarine of the Khabarovsk project is "the most mysterious submarine." It is expected that the submarine will be launched this month. There is very little public information about it. It is only known that it will carry six massive strategic Poseidon torpedoes.

The powerful submarine of the Ash-M project, armed with cruise missiles, has a reputation for stealth. It is armed with three types of cruise missiles that can be combined. "Caliber" is a missile designed to deal with ground targets, with a very long flight range, equivalent to "Tomahawk" of the US Navy. The larger Onyx is a supersonic anti-ship missile system capable of working on the ground. Smaller anti-ship missiles RCC "Zircon" can move at hypersonic speeds.

The Lada-class strike submarine is the latest generation of non-nuclear submarines built for the Russian Navy. Unlike the United States, Russia still appreciates the presence of a large number of small and cheaper non-nuclear submarines in its ranks. According to Forbes, in the future these boats will be equipped with VNEU, which some other countries have already achieved.

The Kilo-class advanced strike submarine [designation of the Halibut and Varshavyank in NATO] dates back to the 1980s, but improved models are still under construction. Recent versions can launch Caliber cruise missiles. Unlike the Ash project, they have to be placed in the torpedo compartment, so the submarine can carry only a few pieces.

Such a large number of different classes of submarines has its pros and cons. This approach is considered less effective, but equally, each type can be better adapted to its intended role. The massive spy submarine, like other classes associated with the Poseidon, perform roles that are unique to the Russian fleet

      Typically, such articles appear in two cases - when the Yankees are cutting / saving or want to knock out additional allocations.

        Already brought to mind Lada. Kronshtadt, built on the improved project 677D was launched. The problems were with the head submarine St. Petersburg project 677, all errors were taken into account and corrected during the construction of Kronstadt project 677D.
        September 20, 2018 at the Admiralty Shipyards in St. Petersburg solemnly launched the Kronshtadt diesel-electric submarine. Details of how the most modern and invisible submarine ship of the Russian fleet was launched into the water can be found in the report Sudostroenie.info.

        "Kronstadt" is the first serial, second in a row, ship of project 677 "Lada". The lead diesel-electric submarine (DEPL) of this project - "St. Petersburg" - has been in trial operation with the fleet since 2010.

    I believe that our General Staff does not eat bread for nothing, and several types of boats are a necessity for the Russian state, and not a tribute to anything.

        Unfortunately, the first rank we can build now is only underwater (at EBN, just a shaking hand once did not reach this area).
        There is a clear imbalance in the balance of the fleet. There are snoops, they’ll be enough (considering all government orders), but here’s SMALL! Very little. I'm not even talking about frigates / corvettes - minesweepers are full of seams. = _ =
        PS And it would not hurt to put the third “Orlan” into operation.

    Judging by the nasty minor music for the video, Forbes already feels the doomsday. But how could it be otherwise if Poseidon is capable of breaking through even a missile defense. crying

    Russia invests heavily in submarines
    But how could it be otherwise if they not only impose tax on all sides, but also push the countries neighboring Russia on constant provocations. And while Forbes is modestly silent about the size of the military budget of the United States and our country. It is felt that the Poseidon excited them too much, that many American media began to mention him far from military topics.

    But the fact that in India aircraft from different countries (incompatible weapons, differences in service, etc.) do not bother you? And different types of submarines are being built by Russia. Now funny? One must still be at least a little friends with logic.
