The boat was laid down on May 20, 2011 at the Newport News Shipbuilding shipyard, launched in November 2012 and handed over the fleet in June 2013, with 11 months ahead of schedule.

The submarine displacement is 7800 tons, length - 114,8 m, width - 10, 4 m, speed - 25 nodes, crew - more than 100 people. The boat is armed with 4 torpedo tubes and 12 rocket mines of vertical launch.

"The fleet commanders have a very high demand for multi-purpose submarines. They need the key capabilities of multi-purpose submarines - speed, maneuverability, secrecy, autonomy and, if necessary, fire power," said Rear Admiral Ken, the commander of the 2 group of submarines. Perry.

        Once at Discovery they showed the assembly of these boats, first they are assembled in pieces, or rather compartments, and then all this is connected.

        Like on rails. Nothing is to be cut - it’s already won’t get a contract. They gave money and people work.

      So:
      1. The proven principle of modular construction
      2. Continuous supply of material
      3. Not destroyed by the restructuring of the military industrial complex, respectively, the shipyard, respectively, their modernization and qualified personnel.

      So do not be surprised. Caught up.

      They have 11 months ahead of schedule, and we have 11 years later, it is not in vain that the Americans take "increased socialist" obligations. And we have a "chronic" underfunding.

      It’s just that shipbuilders understand what they are building. And what significance their work has for the defense capabilities of their country. And their work is paid, probably, accordingly ...

      Listen how much can you recover already? After the collapse of the USSR, 22 years have already passed, Putin has been in power for 13 years, during which time it was possible to build new plants from scratch. Or even years 50-60 will be restored to the level of the USSR, because the West will not wait.

        Well, and who is so tight with a sense of humor? The painter I’m talking about, not so long ago burned one Amer’s boat, as if the Turkish fleet in the battle of Cheshma could have done the same with another boat ... For the good of the world community and America itself, in the long run .

    The whole issue is production management. Among Americans, it is elevated to absolute and expressed in hourly wages. Want to earn a lot, work a lot. We are paid the same salary and the loafer who runs a smoke every minute or a “tea” to drink a coffee and a hard worker who doesn’t leave the machine. It’s now that I’m writing a comment for this article instead of working. So no wonder. Maybe we recall Peter I with his active participation in the construction of the first Russian ships and we recommend this to our leaders. You look and the fleet is again lined up "Russkiy". And you can also recall how the autocrat of the boyars, or the modern oligarchs, scribbled on this very fleet. Also a useful initiative, by the way.

    I am most impressed by the schedule advance of 11 months. The work cycle itself is not particularly accelerated and so fast enough. You can save only on the time reserve for eliminating jambs according to the results of factory tests. So, there were no serious stocks. Hats off, well done.

    The boat is serial, the eleventh in a row - so the mustache is worked out. And the culture of production of Americans is very, very high. We are now, as always, to catch up. Well, again, they did not have perestroika - cooperation works like a clock.
