The first serial multipurpose nuclear submarine of project 885M ("Yasen-M") "Novosibirsk" fleet until the end of 2021.
It is reported TASS citing a source in the PKK.
According to the source, the submarine will have to go through a series of tests, including the launch of Onyx and Caliber missiles, after which a decision will be made to transfer the submarine to the customer.
The nuclear submarine will be handed over to the fleet in the fourth quarter of 2021. Prior to this, "Novosibirsk" must complete the factory sea trials and pass the state
- he said.
Thus, given that the lead submarine of this project "Kazan" is fully ready for transfer to the fleet, the Navy will receive two modernized "Yasenya-M" this year.
