    Russia’s New Nuclear Submarine Completes White Sea Trials

    MOSCOW, October 8 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s new-generation nuclear-powered submarine has successfully completed the first round of sea trials in the White Sea, the manufacturer said Tuesday.

    The Vladimir Monomakh, a Project 955 Borey-class submarine, spent 25 days at sea, testing all of its systems and equipment, the Sevmash shipyard said in a statement. It added that the submarine would soon conduct a final series of sea trials to be completed by year-end.

    Sevmash chief Mikhail Budnichenko said in July that the Vladimir Monomakh would join the navy in mid-December. But the submarine, to be armed with the Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), had its trials put on hold earlier this month following an unsuccessful Bulava launch. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also ordered five additional launches of the troubled SLBM, a ministry spokesman said.

    With the September 6 failure, eight of 19 or 20 test launches of the Bulava have been officially declared unsuccessful. However, some analysts suggest that in reality the number of failures is considerably higher. Despite several previous failures officially blamed on manufacturing faults, the Russian military has insisted that there is no alternative to the Bulava.

    A total of eight Borey-class submarines are to be built for the Russian Navy by 2020. Russia’s fleet received its first such submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, in January. Borey-class submarines are to become the mainstay of the navy's strategic nuclear deterrent, replacing the aging Project 941 (NATO: Typhoon-class) and Project 667 class (Delta-3 and Delta-4) boats.

    Found confirmation that Monomah used a section of the inner hull of the retired (and cut up) project 971 Ak-Bars (first of the class).

    Makes sense, since project was modified to use the unfinished hulls laying around at Sevmash, but there were no more left for Monomah.

    4th hull is all new, hence new designation.

    Speaking of which, so much for 5th hull being laid down....

    Did they tell what was the problem with last Bulava failure ?

    It now clear this is not a QA issue and leads more to design issue , the factory that built the production Bulava which failed mentioned that the commision was satisfied this was not a QA issue.

    So the can is at MITT yard

    Russia to Start Building 5th Borey Nuclear Sub in 2014

    ST. PETERSBURG, November 13 (RIA Novosti) – The construction of a fifth Borey-class nuclear-powered ballistic-missile submarine is expected to begin in late 2014, Russia’s navy chief Adm.Viktor Chirkov said Wednesday.

    “We have a state defense procurement program in line with which the construction of ships is taking place,” Chirkov told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on prospects of military shipbuilding until 2050.

    “I cannot talk about a specific date … but the start to construction of another Borey will happen within a year,” he said.

    The first Borey-class submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, was commissioned into the Northern Fleet in January.

    The second, the Alexander Nevsky, is most likely expected for delivery to the Russian Navy around the end of this month or in early December, according to Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation.

    The third boat, the Vladimir Monomakh, is undergoing sea and state trials, while the fourth Borey-class submarine, the Knyaz Vladimir, has been under construction at the Sevmash shipyard in northern Russia since July 2012.
    Borey-class ballistic-missile submarines are to become the mainstay of the Navy's strategic nuclear deterrent, replacing the aging Project 941 (designated by NATO as Typhoon-class) and Project 667 (Delta-3 and Delta-4) boats.

    A total of eight Borey-class boats are to be built for the Russian Navy by 2020.

    Well, what did I tell ya guys? 5th boat will not be laid down till late 2014 at the earliest.

    We will be lucky if 5 boats are in service by 2020.

    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...

    First manners boy. Introduce yourself. 

    I dont see anyone laughing that US GBI missiles are deployed but they dont work or that SM-3 was deployed for 10 years and was not even close to finish its testing. There are many 

    other examples and no one is ridiculing anything. This is not that kind of forum so behave accordingly.

    Uh you think its a secret to us that Bulava is not ready?

    And nobody is cheering its failures here, nor hiding it.

     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.

    boreis 1 are a bit loud , borei 2 will have the pumpjet but its very complicated machinery and russia is lagging in that area.

    And you have what basis for that statement? Come on, produce actual proof.

    What is Borei 1? 955? It already has pump jet.
