12

The first serial nuclear-powered strategic missile cruiser of the Borey-A project, Knyaz Oleg, has begun sea trials. The first sailing took place earlier than planned.


Submarine missile carrier, which this year should be part of the Russian fleet, began its first trip to the sea ranges of the Northern Fleet as part of the tests that had begun. Moreover, the submarine left even earlier than planned. Earlier it was reported that the "Prince Oleg" will go to sea in early June, and not at the end of May, as it happened.

According to a source in the OPK, whose words are quoted by TASS, the launch of the missile carrier for testing took place on Sunday, May 30 in the evening. There is no information about the test program at this stage.

According to the information announced earlier, the Knyaz Oleg APRKSN will become part of the Russian Navy in the fourth quarter of this year, that is, not earlier than October. Until that time, he will have to go through the entire test program, including the Bulava launches.

Sevmash is currently building three more submarine missile carriers Borey-A - Generalissimo Suvorov (laid down on December 26, 2014), "Emperor Alexander III" (laid down on December 18, 2015) and "Prince Pozharsky" (laid down December 23, 2016). Two more "Boreya-A" - "Prince Potemkin" and "Dmitry Donskoy" are planned to be laid this year.

Four Boreas are in service with the Russian Navy, of which three projects 955 (Borey) of the 4th generation are strategic missile cruisers Yuri Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh, as well as one submarine missile carrier of the modernized project. " Borey-A "-" Prince Vladimir ".

    Great news. I really hope that the tests will take place on the first try and often will not have to return to the shipyard.

    Thanks for building something for the Navy. True, we still need a surface fleet of sufficient quantity and quality, otherwise our strategists will not be able to fully ensure the same parity after leaving our territorial waters.

      Of course, I am not a submariner, but I do not think that a squadron of surface ships should always be above the submarine. For what? To make it easier for the submarine to locate and know its location at any time? request This is not an aircraft carrier that needs an escort.

        The surface fleet provides a safe exit from the submarine base, as foreign submarines are on duty at the border of neutral waters.

          since foreign submarines are on duty at the border of neutral waters.

          And also patrolling Orions and Poseidons are constantly circling in the RBP

        If enemy forces in the ocean, primarily anti-submarine forces, do not collide with a surface enemy, they act with impunity. The meaning of the presence of our surface forces is not in the literal escort of our missile carrier, but in blocking the actions of the enemy fleet and its ASW forces, creating threats and obstacles for the last. In addition to surface forces and aircraft, the enemy also has submarines, which are also part of the PLO forces, there are their bases and patrol areas. In order to destroy the same enemy submarine at the right time, having untied his hands, our strategist needs not only our submarines in the area of ​​his patrol.
