The USC announced plans to transfer to the fleet of the APKSN project 955A "Prince Oleg"

The first serial missile submarine of project 955A Borey-A - Prince Oleg - will be introduced into the Naval fleet by the end of the year. This was stated by the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov.

The second after the lead APKSN “Prince Vladimir” and the first serial submarine strategic cruiser “Prince Oleg” is planned to be transferred to the fleet in December this, 2020. The lead submarine of project 955A (code "Borey-A") "Prince Vladimir" was officially accepted into the Northern Fleet on June 12. It was on this day that the ceremony of raising the flag of St. Andrew on the submarine took place.

Fifth Borey, Prince Oleg, we plan to turn in to the fleet this year, I think it will be December

- said Rakhmanov.

As reported last year, after being put into operation, the latest submarine cruiser "Prince Oleg" will leave to serve in the Pacific Fleet. Initial plans to introduce him to the Northern Fleet were changed. The submarine is currently undergoing a test cycle.

It is assumed that after the completion of the construction of the Borey and Borey-A submarines, the Northern and Pacific fleets will receive five submarines of this project each. Missile carriers will become the basis of Russia's naval strategic nuclear forces. They carry up to 16 intercontinental ballistic missiles R-30 "Bulava-30" with a range of more than 9 thousand km and head units with a capacity of 150 ct.

The submarines of the 955 and 955А projects (Borey and Borey-A) were developed by the Central Design Bureau of the Marine Equipment Rubin. The differences between the 955 and 955А projects were not disclosed, however, it is known that the Borea-A, compared to the Boreas, modernized the hull designs, uses new electronics, and the 955A boats are better stealth.

      "Prince Oleg" has not yet been launched, this is all PR, they will not have time for anything by the end of the year. It is also necessary to finish building the cruiser afloat + physical launch of the reactor, mooring tests. Everything will take a couple of years. So the Pacific Fleet will not receive the cruiser soon, the last squid will be raped. By the way, in the Far East, the Project 956 combat destroyer sank from dilapidation at the berth. At the Pacific Fleet, only one destroyer "Bystry" remained alive and that's it. "Burny" will be written off this year, now he is a floating barracks. From it already everything that can be put on "Fast".

        I don’t even know if some kind of mistake crept in (in the news material). Rakhmanov made a statement that “Kazan” will be adopted in December ...

          Mikhalych! Do not get fooled by the spreading cranberries of this spiteful foreign registration! At the beginning of 2020, the combat unit was withdrawn from the combat personnel of the Pacific Fleet, all armaments were removed from it and put in a sludge, waiting for the line for cutting ...
          And the spiteful person didn’t even bother to see that the Pacific Fleet still had 2 EM 956: Rugged and Fast. Rugged in the reserve of the 1st category.

    It can not but rejoice. More new boats. I hope the crews will be easier on them, and more comfortable. Heavy service. Even on new boats.

    Given that the ship has not yet left the workshop, the statement sounds stupid and shows the competence of the applicant.

      hi That's it. Knowingly false information. Why this PR is needed is unclear.

    A total of 10 submarines. And what is the total number of strategists on two oceans now?

      1 squid, 6 dolphins, 4 borea. The rest is scrap. Dmitry Donskoy is no longer a strategist.

          I’ve thrown the architecture of Soviet ships. Probably from Ukraine, they like Americans’s aircraft carriers. They let them throw a bone. Interesting how many minuses will be typed. Until 7.

    In any case, an experimental boat is needed, and most likely the Donskoy will remain with it. The point is to remake it under the CD?
