Russia will extend the series of nuclear submarines of the Yasen-M project

The second serial multi-purpose nuclear submarine of project 885M "Krasnoyarsk" is being tested at sea, as reported by the director of "Sevmash" Mikhail Budnichenko.

It is worth noting that the submarines of this project have their own characteristics that distinguish them from their closest foreign competitors.

Recall that in the spring of this year, the lead nuclear submarine Kazan of the Yasen-M project sank to a depth of 600 meters during exercises in the Barents Sea. This figure is as much as 100 meters more than that of its direct competitor from the United States, the Virginia-class nuclear submarine.

But the superiority of our nuclear submarine over foreign "colleagues" is not limited to this. So, in terms of the number of onboard weapons, the Yasen-M submarines are 2,16 times superior to the Virginia-class submarines, and the French Suffren are 4 times altogether.

At the same time, our nuclear submarine costs $2,5 billion, and the cost of the Virginia, which is inferior to it, the fourth level of modernization, exceeds $4 billion.

The lead nuclear submarine "Kazan" of project 885M was handed over to the Russian Navy in the spring of last year. The first serial submarine "Novosibirsk" entered service at the end of 2021. Now it is reported that the next nuclear submarine of this project, Krasnoyarsk, is being tested.

Moreover, a similar submarine Arkhangelsk is being prepared for launching, and 4 more submarines of the Yasen-M project are under construction.

However, that's not all. In the summer of this year, quite reliable rumors appeared that the project would not be limited to the construction of the aforementioned nuclear submarines. It is assumed that at least two more similar multifunctional nuclear submarines will be laid down in the future.

    submarines are the basis of the fleet

        I agree with you, the surface fleet has become outdated, it has become auxiliary and coastal, but a drone will not reach America .... surface ships are definitely outdated at sea, all real adequate specialists, including myself, are fighting against the crazy ideas of aircraft carriers and super destroyers that hit budget, but they drown from the first missile like the cruiser Moscow, but the submarine fleet, secretive, far-reaching, is the only very long arm of Russia, in addition to the Strategic Missile Forces, caliber strikes from submarines are also effective,

          Poseidon will "fly" ... the same drone. and figs what submarine will stop him. and with aircraft carriers, some authors of this resource will categorically disagree with you. hi

            Yes, I agree with you regarding the Poseidons. This "horse" is one of the few achievements of our scientists, thanks to which, among other things, the Americans, I think, STRONGLY press their tail. Such a thing that it is not clear how to deal with it.
            If only the directed action of the explosion had been somehow figured out, there would have been no price at all. So that, in which case, to wash a specific coast from the Finns or the Balts, and so that St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad do not get hurt at the same time.
            One day they would officially notify that a couple of things had already "lay down" and that's it. In fact, you might as well not lie. The psychological effect would be enough.
            And if you demonstrate somewhere else before that, then ........
            Surely, just before our eyes, everything would change. Then the barking would stop altogether. And silence, and all silk, and all polite. They give way, they offer to sit down, etc ........

              when the Poseidons are mastered, then perhaps some decision will be made on the nuclear submarine, .... but so far the Poseidons are being launched just from the nuclear submarine

          Aircraft carriers do not sink from one missile, these are the most damage-resistant ships, while no one is going to abandon them.

            udk aircraft carriers and civilian ferries sink especially quickly, because they have a long inner deck without buoyancy compartments (or rather, buoyancy compartments on AB and UKD are not voluminous enough, ... an aircraft carrier is a completely defenseless bandura, requires special protection, in the Russian Federation it does not have such protection physically, it was believed that cruisers like Moscow will be guarding the aircraft carrier, it turned out they can’t protect themselves (and both will be written off within 5-7 years, only Nakhimov and not the fact that Peter will remain), and the aircraft carrier will sink even faster than the cruiser, useless tub, the aircraft carrier has ridiculous air defense at the level of a corvette, a cardboard fool for parades, only in certain weather it is able to issue 5-6 airplanes, but is unable to protect itself ..... USA CHINA India can provide security for AB, and have tasks for it, the Russian Federation has no tasks for it and an escort also not and is not expected, a wise decision on Kuze was made, to sell

              There was a quality article on Topvar on this subject, google - "How many missiles and torpedoes do you need to sink an aircraft carrier?".

                googled junk 2019 and it’s not true, now there’s not a single witness of the totalitarian destructive sect of aircraft carriers left on the topvar, I crushed them all to smithereens and they ran away from the sect upside down, except for two evil and stupid adherents who are not able to argue, but only call names rude and mooing .... even in the article you cited it is indicated that one hit of granite and an aircraft carrier should be repaired, with the loss of a third of the aircraft ... and if the arrival is below kvl? Moscow also held out for a day after the fire .... but the aircraft carrier rolls over faster and 4000 people die at once

      I once read a work called:
      Russian society and the sinking of the Kursk nuclear submarine on August 12, 2000
      It says that our submarines are many times noisier than American ones. Quote:

      In practice, the previously mentioned gap of 30 dB in the technically ensured levels of acoustic stealth is manifested in the fact that the issue of mutual detection of each other by US and domestic submarines in the vast majority of cases is resolved in favor of the United States at ranges at which domestic boats behind their own noises and noises the seas do not hear the Americans.

      But our high authorities always disputed this in order to hide corruption and not fly away from their posts.
      Interestingly, now in 2022 something has changed in this regard?

        The authors are wrong and so are you. it’s just that a laid-back nuclear submarine is much quieter than one moving at high speed and not expecting an enemy in the Barents Sea, The criminal admirals of the Russian Navy scattered the fleet over their feeders in closed seas = puddles, black Baltic and Japanese with Caspian, not a single surface ship will survive there, which I mean I always wrote, but the criminal admirals did not listen to me and lost the cruiser Moscow, and now they are sitting in the bases and are afraid to stick their nose out, so why are there ships then, I warned you? in the loss of Kursk, the admiral's fault is also 100 percent, because the very ships that they scattered across the closed seas as a state treason and cut allowances, those very ships frigates, corvettes and cruisers are urgently needed in the north and Kamchatka! Attention!!!! admirals abandoned ALL OUR nuclear submarines to their fate, like Kursk !!!!, because there are not enough funds to protect the water area in the north, and in Kamchatka there are no PLO ships and PLO aircraft at all (a couple of MPKs only) this is not a mistake! this is a crime ...... urgently disperse the General Staff of the Navy and retire the entire admiralty !!!!!

    From the current situation, an increase in the series of Project 885 M nuclear submarines suggests itself. Taking into account its armament and the installation of Zirkon missiles on them, they are needed not only to cover SSBNs and KUGs, but also to strike at AUGs and objects on enemy territory!)))
