The timing of the launch of the special-purpose submarine K-329 "Belgorod" for testing

9

Plans have been announced to test the Russian nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod. This submarine is designated as a special purpose submarine and belongs to the 09852 project.


According to TASS, citing an unnamed source in the defense industry, it is planned to withdraw the Belgorod nuclear submarine for state tests at the end of this spring. The tests will be carried out in the waters of the White Sea.

It is noted that the choice of time for testing fell in May due to the fact that by this time the White Sea would open up from ice.

It should be recalled that the Belgorod nuclear submarine is a carrier submarine of the 2M39 Poseidon underwater vehicles. This is a device that performs the functions of a kind of nuclear torpedo. Poseidon is capable of destroying enemy aircraft carrier strike groups, as well as coastal military infrastructure.

The press notes that the tests of the nuclear submarine "Belgorod" "are not tied to the tests of the deep-sea nuclear apparatus" Poseidon ".

For reference: K-329 Belgorod was built at the Sevmash enterprise. The submarine was launched in April 2019. Earlier it was reported that the submarine will enter service in 2020, but the dates have been postponed. Putting into service depends on the success of the very tests that are scheduled for May 2021. The nuclear submarine can also carry missile weapons on board. According to some reports, among other things, the submarine may be armed with Kalibr cruise missiles.

    I wish good luck to this project.
    Poseidons off the coast of Florida are cool.

      Something I doubt that Poseidon is cool.
      Half a century has passed since Sakharov proposed a nuclear torpedo and a nuclear rift explosion, and since then little has changed.

    Wow, how the "progressive public" will be outraged by the inhuman NUCLEAR Poseidon and its carrier!
    He infects the environment with radiation! (And after all, CHSH - crap!)
    He's carrying a monstrous yudryonbaton! (And in fact it can actually carry 100 Mt, well, directly according to the Sakharov precepts!)
    But who will be worried about how much of his reactor activity will enter the ecology after the explosion of the warhead?
    Although Poseidon himself, and without any carrier, can slowly reach any part of the planet in a certain number of days / weeks to finish. His range is NOT LIMITED!

    Good luck to "Belgorod" and his team! Let the number of dives always equal the number of ascents!

    According to TASS, citing an unnamed source in the defense industry ...
    Isn't there too many sources in the defense industry who cannot keep their mouths shut? Today, from the open press, you can find out what a potential enemy used to find out in N-th time with a large expenditure of manpower and resources (technical intelligence, agents) and was discouraged by the information.
    Well, the submarine can only wish to pass the tests successfully.

      The journalist wrote an article on his knees. It was launched a long time ago. There were no state tests, it is winter now, the ice will melt by May on the White Sea, so the tests will begin, or may not begin. That's the whole source, you can even stay in your apartment. , blooper and not work. What's new in this article?

    Nothing is said about the date of the bookmark, and here's why

    The foundation stone of Belgorod took place about thirty years ago. The unfinished missile carrier of Project 949A (of the same type to Kursk), which it was decided to finish building in the form of a carrier for some unknown reason, since the formation of the hull and the installation of the reactors was completed before 2004, then for 10 years it was unclear what to do, it was easier to complete or disassemble. It would be too difficult to finish building in the form of a missile carrier. It's easier to change the designation and build a dummy instead of a combat-ready submarine ... So it took only six years to prepare the ship for launching ...

    Belgorod, it seems, has broken the record of all long-term construction, but in accordance with the observed trend, this record will also be broken.

      So after all, it was not only completed, but also decently remade.
      The project was based on the project 949A Antey submarine.
      Displacement underwater ------ 23 900 t
      Length ---------------------------------------- 154 m
      and the submarine K-329 "Belgorod" has
      Displacement underwater ------ 30 000 t
      Length (at design waterline) --------------------------- 184 m

      In length, she surpassed the boats of Project 941 "Akula" (172,8 m).
