    5th Boreii will be named Alexandr Suvorov! Now that is a proper name.
    The ship will only be laid down in July, on Navy Day though...
    6th boat is planned for November 2013, will be named Mikhail Kutuzov.

    Pretty late in the year, I think there is potential for the dates to slip.
    For now I will stay with my estimate of 4 Boreiis by 2020.

    Im more concern about 885 class and its time schedule than Borei.

    I was reading somewhere about shipyard intentions to pop up Borei class ahead of schedule.

    Yes here it is.

    By 2018 it is planned to build eight submarines of this project.

    So if the Shipyard are so busy that they cannot built 8 Borei and 7 Yasen , how will they upgrade the Akulas and Oscar 2 do they have enough space to carry all the works ?

    The legacy boats are being upgraded @ Zvezdochka; so far Sevmash is the only shipyard involved with the new nuclear boats.

    Does West Actually have the money these days with all those debt ?

    Well they could either lower taxes for the rich or print more money... they can't afford new wars yet seem happy to create them from nothing.

    ) –Russia’s Sevmash shipyard will lay down in 2013 two upgraded Borey class nuclear-powered strategic submarines, capable of carrying 20 ballistic missiles each, Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper said on Monday citing defense industry sources.

    The construction of the Alexander Suvorov, the fifth in the series and second of the improved Project 955A (Borey-A) class, will begin on July 28, when Russia celebrates Navy Day, while the sixth submarine, the Mikhail Kutuzov, will be laid down in November.

    The metal cutting works for the hulls of these vessels have been carried out since 2011, the paper said.

    Russia’s first Borey class submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, officially entered service with the Russian Navy on January 10. It has been assigned to the 31st submarine division of the Northern Fleet.

    The second vessel of the Borey class, the

    Alexander Nevsky, is undergoing sea trials while the third, the Vladimir Monomakh, was floated out on
    December 30.

    The first three vessels in the Borey series are capable of carrying 16 new multiple-warhead Bulava ballistic missiles.

    The first submarine of the improved Borey-A class, the Knyaz Vladimir, was laid down in July 2012.

    The Borei class submarines are set to become the mainstay of the Russian Navy's strategic nuclear deterrent fleet, replacing the ageing Project 941 (NATO Typhoon class) and Project 667 class (Delta-3 and Delta-4) boats.

    Russia is planning to have three Borey class and five Borey-A class submarines by 2020.

    The improved vessels will be equipped with advanced sonar, navigation, communications and fire-control systems and will be more “stealthy,” Rossiiskaya Gazeta said.

    If they want 8 boats by 2020 I don't understand the logic of wanting 20 launch tubes per sub.

    Assuming a strategic limit of 1,250 warheads, which is at the lower end of that allowed (ie 1200-1500) then that means each service will have 1250/3 warheads each. We have been told that Bulava has 6 warheads, so having 20 tubes per sub means a maximum of (20 x 5 x 6) + (16 x 3 x 6) = 600 + 288 warheads.

    Perhaps they will only load 3 warheads into each missile and use the rest of the capacity for penaids, or perhaps they are anticipating a US missile defence system that requires more than 1,500 warheads being deployed?

    With three warheads per missile that makes 444 warheads, and with 1,250 divided by three equalling about 417 that might work out about right.

    Bulava has the flexibility of carrying 6 small warheard with pen aids i.e 100-150 kt each , 3 large warhead with Penaids ( 300 - 400 kt ) and even single warhead ( 900- 1000 kt ) with penaids.

    Most likely the Bulava SLBM will come with 3 warhead each and the 6 warheard configuration is the upload potential reserved for situation where Russia withdraws from NEW START treaty due to any future dispute with US on ABM deployments.

    Liner was tested with 10 Warhead configuration for the same reason , it can carry large and small warhead in configuration of 10 , which is the upload potential for Liner though in reality they would carry 4 warhead each.

    Its more of a signal to NATO/US that if required Russian can quickly upload the payload of its SLBM

    Not a signal... a precaution.

    They have the capacity to greatly increase warhead numbers fairly quickly and cheaply without the cost of having to add more platforms...

    Russia starts second Borey-class sub test

    MOSCOW, January 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russian submarine-builder Sevmash has begun moored tests of the third Borey-class (Project 955) ballistic missile submarine Vladimir Monomakh, the shipyard said on Friday.
    "The fourth-generation missile submarine Vladimir Monomakh has been submerged in the water and started moored tests," Sevmash said.
    Shipyard sea trials will start in the summer of this year, Sevmash said.
    Vladimir Monomakh will be the third and last Project 955 boat, armed with 16 Bulava ballistic missiles. The fourth and subsequent boats will be Project 955A vessels with 20 missiles. The fourth boat, Knyaz Vladimir, is under construction.
    Vladimir Monomakh has also been built with the incorporation of the latest acoustic signature reduction techniques, Sevmash said.
    The Russian Navy accepted into service the first boat of the class, Yury Dolgoruky, on January 10. The second in the class, Alexander Nevsky, is currently undertaking sea trials and is due to enter service this year.

    The navy plans to operate eight Borey class submarines, with construction ending in 2020.

    So it seems the construction is picking up pace and gets the boats ready. It is clear that this project is very important for the Federation, and its nice its succesful, its by no means easy to build and maintain a fleet of SSBN´s with missiles. Few countrys have that capability, as its technological and engineering and sience must be in top. Also its very expensive.

    A few questions remains though, about Bulava, is it in service and is all the glitches eliminated?

    Now we wait for Yasen project to also gain momentum.

    Going by public announcements the Bulava officially entered service about the same time as the YD sub.

    3rd is starting trials this year and number 5 and 6 will be laid Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    Nice pace.

    Also 3rd Yassen will be laid this year.


    Russia’s Third Borey-Class Sub to Start Trials in June


    MOSCOW, April 1 (RIA Novosti) - A third Project 955 Borey-class nuclear-powered strategic submarine will start trials in the White Sea in June, United Shipbuilding Corporation President Andrei Dyachkov said on Monday.

    The Vladimir Monomakh was floated out last December and is due to enter service in 2014.

    The first Project 955 Borey-class submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, was commissioned into the Northern Fleet in January, and the second, the Alexander Nevsky, will be handed over to the Russian Navy by the end of the year, a Navy official told RIA Novosti last Friday.

    The Alexander Nevsky has been undergoing trials at the Sevmash shipyard since 2012. There will be three sea trials this year and a Bulava ballistic missile will be test-launched from the submarine in the summer, the official said.

    The first three vessels in the Borey series are capable of carrying 16 Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
    A total of eight Borey-class submarines are to be built for the Russian Navy by 2020.

    Sevmash will start construction this year of two upgraded Borey class Project 955A submarines - the Alexander Suvorov and the Mikhail Kutuzov - capable of carrying 20 ballistic missiles each.

    Borey class submarines are to become the mainstay of the navy's strategic nuclear deterrent, replacing the ageing Project 941 (NATO Typhoon class) and Project 667 class (Delta-3 and Delta-4) boats.

    Dolgoruki and Severdovinsk. Just by crude visual analysis, compared to a SSBN the 885 is a BIG boat.
