Russia is rapidly updating its strategic fleet


The strategic submarine Generalissimo Suvorov is undergoing factory sea trials in the White Sea. If the latter are successful, the nuclear submarine will be placed at the disposal of the Russian Navy ahead of schedule by the end of this year.


It is worth noting that the Generalissimo Suvorov is already the third submarine of the improved Borey-A fourth-generation project, in which fundamentally new technical solutions are implemented.

The nuclear submarine was laid down in 2014. Underwater displacement of "Generalissimo Suvorov" is 24 thousand tons, surface - 14720 tons. The submarine is capable of diving to 480 meters and moving underwater at a speed of 29 knots (54 km/h).

From armament, the strategic submarine received: 4 torpedoes of caliber 533 mm and 650 mm, RPK-6M "Waterfall" and 16 solid-propellant ICBM R-30 "Bulava" with a nuclear warhead.

In the light of recent announcements by the British and US authorities, which intend to upgrade their nuclear submarine fleet, the commissioning of our new nuclear submarines is extremely timely. True, the States plan to carry out rearmament by 2040, and Britain does by 2060.

At the same time, in Russia, in addition to the Generalissimo Suvorov, which is undergoing sea trials, 4 more Borey-A submarines are already being built and, apparently, they are preparing to start building two more, thus working ahead of the curve.

      This is Great Russia, and one, although a scoundrel, is nothing against the might of Russia. Finally, the Borisovs and Rogozins were removed as centers of corruption, and therefore the execution of orders began to move. Where the FSB and the Investigative Committee, counterintelligence are looking, perhaps many also have accounts and property abroad. (I recall a colonel with hundreds of millions of US dollars under his bed for his own safety, only he was imprisoned, and the main ones are so untouchable ...) When he strains on the state from the outside, then parasites and evil spirits emerge ...

    great news, we need more nuclear submarines, let's sell the unnecessary Kuzya and build a modern submarine fleet !!! And you also need to strengthen the north and Kamchatka with PLO frigates and corvettes, because on closed seas they still have nothing to do defenseless targets for coastal anti-ship missiles

    What is the use of increasing the number of strategic carriers of nuclear weapons, that is, doomsday weapons, if we cannot competently, proactively and decisively win with the help of non-nuclear forces and weapons? Generalissimo Suvorov is needed today by the General Staff and the Russian ground forces! Where can I get it...
