recently, Russia “Alexander Nevsky” nuclear submarine in Severodvinsk shipbuilding market plant into the water, which is Russia’s second ship, “Borey” class strategic nuclear submarines.
“Borey” is 10 years late for Russia’s strategic nuclear submarine, it had to be replaced in the last century, “Typhoon”-class submarine, the Russian Navy’s strategic standing in front attack.
was noted that a group of figures: 3 years and 8 months, which is the “Alexander Nevsky” number and the time gap between the first boat into the water; April 15, 2007, the Russian 17 years, launched the first strategic nuclear submarine fleet, has declared the 俄罗斯海基 nuclear deterrent to recovery.
“Borey” class strategic nuclear submarines carrying too many dreams and expectations of Russia, who embodies in its decades in the former Soviet Union and Russia, the essence of submarine manufacturing technology. It is shock, noise, etc. have made new breakthroughs.
“Borei” the captain about 170 meters, a width of 13.5 m, maximum speed 29, safe working depth of 400 meters, the staffing of 130.
This time, the designer spent a lot of energy, the “Borey” underwater acoustic performance has improved a big cut. Reportedly, the underwater noise of only 108 db, has been muted than the U.S. Ohio-class nuclear submarine is known of the 110 db is still small.
weapons and equipment, “Borey” class submarines capable of launching the “Bulava” intercontinental missile with a range of 8000 km, with an accuracy of 300-500 meters. “Alexander Nevsky” was to complete with 16 “Bulava” missile, it is equipped with six 533 mm torpedo tubes, capable of firing 16 torpedoes and SS-N-15 anti-submarine missiles, equipped with the SA-N-8 short-range ship-air missiles, self-defense capability is quite powerful. Russian Navy to consider speed of 200 equipped with the “Storm” high-speed torpedo, the submarine torpedo is not only effective, but also anti-torpedo.
Some analysts said that for Russia, “Borey” the service is re-built sea-based strategic nuclear deterrent milestone, but it does not recover in a short time the Russian sea-based nuclear deterrent. On the one hand, the “Bulava” missile need to continue to test, yet not loaded boat use; the other hand, said Russia plans to build eight of the 2017 class nuclear submarines, but the actual speed is rather slow. Even eight full service, the Russian sea-based nuclear forces will continue to be a limited size of the deterrent.
