    It has a fleet of recently upgraded Il-38s in service that should be fine for the next decade or so.

    Or are you one of those kids that see the P-8 and want a Russian equivalent to crow about on the internet?

    Russia has a small fleet of maritime patrol aircrafts.

    Because those are complement only the sensor network.

    special submarines for seismic testing-probably for underwater oil and gas deposit research in the arctic....
    possible military application as part of russian coastal naval sosus network-- mobile gap filler , submarine awacs.

    Pls, check the pictures.

    For underwater oil deposit seismic bla bla you don't need micro nuclear reactor for power supply, underwater cranes and heavy duty transport equipment.

    The modified oscar is NOT an "awacs" , the normal submarines has that capability.

    That is a heavy duty transport equipment.


    The small cranes transport the nuclear power plant to site, and the oscar carry the sonar/cables to site, and housing the personnel .


    And all of this required only for places, that has all year long ice cover.
    For all other places they can use surface ships to do the lifting / installation.


    Means that this kind of equipment can be seen under the north pole, on the lomonosov ridge.


    This is the reason why russia doesn't has maritime patrol aircraft - they don't need them.


    This system is way superior compared to an aircraft based system.


    The kilos are the fist of the system, they carry the torpedoes to the launch zone, and they receiving the targetingdate from it.

    Is that model purported to be the unfinished Pr.949A Belgorod?  Rather than a carrier for "Status-6" she is intended for arctic basin deep seismic survey?

    On second look, the tower is the wrong shape and has a set of planes, and the stern is completely different... I guess its just a concept?

    It's not a concept, it is model of BS-64 Podmoskovye, modified​ Delta class. It is undergoing trials right now.

    Shes not BS-64 Podmoskovye, as BS-64 is a converted Delta converted as a min-sub carrier (Losharik) and there are plenty of pics of her earlier in this post showing a clear hump leftover from the removal of her missile compartment (which is lacking from the model). Plus her aft has not been remodelled. This model looks to be something different. If its not the Belgorod it may be a concept for a future Kalmar/Delfin conversion once the Borei numbers are sufficient to allow retirement of an old boomer?
