New Project 885M Yasen-M multipurpose nuclear submarines, laid down at Sevmash on July 20, will become the first carriers of the fundamentally new Kalibr-M cruise missiles. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.
According to the source, the laid down nuclear submarines Voronezh and Vladivostok will be armed with the new Kalibr-M cruise missiles with a range of more than 4 km. The new missiles will either carry a conventional high-explosive fragmentation warhead or be equipped with nuclear warheads.
The new multipurpose submarines will be carriers of the fundamentally new "Calibrov-M" with a firing range of over 4 km. New submarines will be better prepared for a non-nuclear strategic deterrent mission than their predecessors
