Russia's new nuclear sub completes year-long trials

Yury Dolgoruky (SSBN)

SEVERODVINSK (BNS): Russia's newest strategic nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) Yury Dolgoruky has successfully completed trials programme of 2010, according to a media report.

"The submarine is not going to be delivered to the Navy so far; as is known, Yury Dolgoruky will undergo trials of standard weapon – new missile system Bulava", ITAR TASS quoted a shipyard's representative as saying.

Yuriy Dolgorukiy is the first SSBN submarine of the Borei class of the Project 955, which was laid down in 1996 and launched for outfitting in April 2007.

The submarine has completed sea trials programme of 2010 and will be commissioned along with submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) Bulava, it said.

Recently, Russia has postponed the missile's first test launch with standard carrier – SSBN Yury Dolgoruky – which was scheduled on Dec 17, due to the heavy snow fall in firing range of the White Sea.

Sevmash shipyard will also build the next submarine of this project – SSBN Vladimir Monomakh.
