The source denied reports about the decision to dispose of the world's largest submarine "Dmitry Donskoy"


The Russian nuclear submarine "Dmitry Donskoy", the largest of its kind, has not been withdrawn from the Russian Navy and continues to be in the sea, performing combat training tasks. A decision on how to deal with the submarine in the future will be made at the end of this year.

Regular reports about the withdrawal of "Dmitry Donskoy" from the Russian Navy do not correspond to reality

- noted in an interview TASS several sources in law enforcement agencies and the shipbuilding industry of the Russian Federation.

Previously an agency RIA News announced the withdrawal of a nuclear submarine from the Russian Navy with a promising further disposal. It was also reported that another Borei-A class submarine (project 955A), laid down in 2021 at Sevmash, will bear the name "Dmitry Donskoy".

The Project 941 heavy nuclear submarine strategic missile cruiser Dmitry Donskoy (code "Shark") became part of the Soviet submarine fleet in 1980. At the moment, the nuclear submarine was the lead submarine of the project. In total, six nuclear submarines were built on it.

In 2002, the submarine was modernized and armed with Bulava missiles. The displacement of the missile cruiser reaches 48 thousand tons, which makes the submarine the largest in the world.

    For example, the United States frightens the whole world with its huge aircraft carriers, and ignorant people tremble before these hulks, a miracle of engineering, although experts have long known that aircraft carriers have long been sentenced in a conflict with an equal enemy.
    Project 941 "Shark" heavy strategic missile submarines are a terrifying weapon with just one look, there is nothing like it in the world. "Shark" is capable of terrifying in spite of the possibilities. A couple of such submarines should be left and modernized in the navy, submariners like to serve on them, there is potential, but money is just paper ...

      The nuclear submarine is the backbone of the fleet!

      Each product has a service life, both technical and moral. The nuclear submarine "Dmitry Donskoy" has been serving for more than 40 years, for nuclear submarines there are not only technical, but also moral limits, because new generations of nuclear submarines are coming ... But it is quite possible to use obsolete nuclear submarines to good use. Especially the use as a stationary strategic missile base in remote regions of the Northern Fleet or TF. Such a base, ready immediately for service, is autonomous in everything, the possibility of diving in a certain water area or even only at the pier is only a plus, etc. ... Creating a new strategic missile weapon base is quite expensive, but here everything is ready ... Such an application , - clearly reinforcing the strategic defense component of the state.

        It is, of course, so. But the missiles have a warranty period of operation that does not exceed 10 years with the possibility of extension. But this cannot happen indefinitely. So the rockets need to be changed. And for what? Nobody will produce old models, new on-board equipment is needed for new ones. And stuffing new equipment into an old building is often more expensive than building a new one. The circle is closed. The destiny of these monsters is museum exhibits, simulators, floating targets, recyclables. Or in civilian life - to carry diesel fuel and ride tourists.

    They'll cut it. Without a doubt. It's a pity. It's a pity.
