    There is no point rushing into full production mode till the sub and missile are OK.

    I rather suspect after things are sorted with the missile that they will start laying them down like nobodies business...

     Why were the 4th and 5th hulls delayed? It seems like the russian navy always gets the short end of development projects. First the lada, then the yasen,then the
    Gren, now this. It seems like the russian navy will never match the French,british or German navies  Sad

    Excuse me while I laugh @ the last part.

    German Navy is a joke.

    France and the UK are not, but there are maaaany aspects in which they do not approach the RuNavy as a whole.
    And both of them suffer from bad delays and budget cuts as well, and neither had the 90s and early 2000s to contend with like Russia. It is universal.

    Type 212....idk, looks fine. So does 636.6, and ofc Russia has a vast nuclear fleet, something Germany lacks period.

    Brits have had plenty of issues with Astute as well, you guys gonna panick about that?

    Britain and France will share aircraft carrier to combat defence cuts, says admiral

    They are neighbours and former enemies.
    But Europe's only nuclear powers - with a centuries-old history of military rivalry - are edging towards military cooperation as they look to cut costs.
    In a new age of collaboration, Britain and France could end up sharing aircraft carriers, Admiral Pierre-Francois Forissier - the head of the French navy - has revealed.

    The admiral also said he had been 'stunned' by the cuts to the British navy.
    The cooperative between the two navies could see the their defence industries sharing nuclear submarines and military satellites.
    Britain's BAE System's and France's Dassault Aviation have already said they will work on an unmanned spy plane capable of launching weapons.

    Forisser said: 'When we compare the European industry with America's, we see a huge number of companies in Europe and just a few in America.
    'It's clear these European firms won't survive and mergers will be needed to be competitive globally.'
    Forriser's revelation came the 60-year-old admiral spoke about humanitarian efforts in Libya once the conflict ends.

    Coalition forces are likely to be deployed to provide humanitarian relief but France will not send ground troops to speed up the outcome, he added.
    He said the Nato-led military operation in Libya would have been helped if Britain had been able to field an aircraft carrier but France's Charles de Gaulle flagship could continue operating there until the autumn.
    Forisser said: 'The political objective is to not commit troops on the ground and we are not working on that option as long as the crisis is not resolved.'
    France and Britain led the push for a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent attacks on civilians by Muammar Gaddafi's forces, under a UN Security Council resolution agreed in March.
    One area earmarked for cooperation between France and Britain is the use of aircraft carriers. In a sweeping review last year, Britain cut its defence budget of £36.9 billion by 8 per cent in real terms up to 2015, scrapping its only aircraft carrier.
    While the short distance between coalition bases and Libya means an aircraft carrier is not essential, Forissier said a British carrier would have been useful to reduce air time, boost attacks and relieve the Charles de Gaulle.
    The cooperation may eventually lead to the creation of identical ships, equipment and similar training, Forissier said.
    After reaching a framework deal in November, both sides are finalising steps for greater integration,

    Forissier believes the two governments should consider building together a cheaper carrier to be used for training.
    'If we both want to have a permanent operating presence then we'll both need two aircraft carriers and I don't think given the financial situation our governments have the means.'
    While Paris has hardly touched its military budget, Forissier said he was 'stunned' by the Royal Navy cuts, at a time when it has had costly operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
    'The Royal Navy, which was always an example for us, is in a tough situation,' he said. 'It makes me wonder whether we'll also have to go through this in the future.'
    Part of avoiding that has been the closer cooperation.
    'I know in Great Britain you pay tribute to Nelson and here we pay tribute to Napoleon, but really we have good reasons to work together,' he said, looking at a painting celebrating a French naval victory over the Royal Navy in 1781.

    Russia’s Northern Fleet Deploys New Borey-Class Nuclear Subs

    MOSCOW, December 30 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s two newest ballistic missile submarines arrived at their home base in the Arctic on Monday to begin active service with the Northern Fleet, the Defense Ministry said.

    The Borey-class submarine Yury Dolgoruky was commissioned in January while the second of the type, the Alexander Nevsky, entered service on December 23.

    Both submarines will operate from the Northern Fleet’s main nuclear submarine base at Gadzhiyevo, Murmansk Region, the ministry said.

    The Borey is Russia’s first post-Soviet ballistic missile submarine class and will form the mainstay of the strategic submarine fleet, replacing aging Typhoon, Delta-3 and Delta-4 class boats. Russia ultimately expects eight Borey-class submarines to enter service by 2020.

    The third vessel in the class, the Vladimir Monomakh, is awaiting manufacturer’s acceptance trials.

    The new Borey-class boats, with a length of nearly two football fields, can carry sixteen Bulava missiles, each fitted with up to ten independently-targetable nuclear warheads.

    Bulava, however, is yet to be declared fully operational, following a problem with a test-firing earlier this year, a Defense Ministry high command source told RIA Novosti in November. The Borey class boats are likely to be restricted to carrying out secondary roles until the weapon is declared ready, the source said at that time.

    Ballistic missile submarines comprise one leg of Russia’s strategic nuclear triad along with land-based ICBMs and the bomber force.

    If the Bulava passes its tests then production of the Boreis can really accelerate, but I suspect some caution in some quarters till Bulava is proven.

    BTW lots of weapons had problems early on and the platforms got into service for years before the problematic weapon or sensor was perfected.

    Klintok is a good example... I am sure everyone would agree that the naval TOR is a potent CIWS missile yet the first ships to operate it went into service without their powerful and sophisticated 3D search radar.

    Quick question, the link above shows "thrusters" that are on the Borey and on the Akula...what are these used for?

    Large vessels often have bow and stern thrusters which are propellers mounted internally to blow water sideways to allow manouvering capability in tight spaces. Obviously in port where you can't move forward or backward but want to turn your nose away from parallel with the pier you can't use your rudder, so either a bow or stern thruster is used or a tug.

    BTW it is a forum rule to post an introduction in the introductions and rules section... too late now, but if you have a look there and read the rules and post an intro now everything will be fine.  Very Happy

    borei looks so fine compared to delta 4?.
    Interestingly enough, the initial specs for ohio replacement now have 12-16 missiles.
