    Suppose Delta IV class decommissioned from service in near future.
    Can/will Liner SLBM be carried by Borei class submarines? Or a new SSBN must be designed?

    Borei is designed around Bulava so no, they can't use Sineva

    Borei should replace all SSBN. So bulava will be only SLBM and I don't think they designed them for other missile than bulava.

    If a new SSBN is made then an new SLBM will be made too. Probably something with hypersonic manouevrable warheads.

    Btw missiles have limit date so those deployed now will be destroyed and they will just stop the production.

    Also, Sineva is liquid fuel missile so that gives them shorter shelf life

    They will be retired alongside Deltas

    Would be interesting for them to continue to make them and develop land based versions for use in arctic areas... some exceed 5,500km so they are ICBMs but with heavy payloads of decoys and jammers and lots of warheads the range could be reduced to IRBMS which will now be allowed and when based in the far north could reach much of the US...

    They are already made after all.

    so there is no need for Russian Navy to have both liquid and solid fuel SLBMs (I thought that was the point for keeping Sineva/Liner)
