    This is good news Viktor. Just one question. Will Borei & Yassen use the same nuclear reactor?

    There were a number of instances of US and German torpedoes hitting the submarine that fired them. Of course the US & Germany did not disclose the full information.

    Be that as it may be here is a list of "circular runs" of torpedos

    Kamchatka on Track to Host Borey-Class Nuclear Subs by October

    According to, Navy Adm. Viktor Chirkov, the infrastructure to base Russia’s Borey-class strategic nuclear submarines in Kamchatka will be ready by October.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – The infrastructure to base Russia’s Borey-class strategic nuclear submarines in Kamchatka will be ready by October of this year, Navy Adm. Viktor Chirkov said Wednesday.

    “The system for basing the Borey-class strategic submarines in Kamchatka is moving along according to schedule and the work will be completed by October 1 of this year,” Adm. Chirkov said.

    The infrastructure will include recreation facilities for submariners, medical facilities, warehouses and a crane for missile embarkation, which is expected to be launched by October 1, Chirkov added.

    As for now, three Borey-class submarines are built and another three are under construction. Eight Borey-class submarines are expected to enter into service by 2020 and become the primary nuclear force for the Russian Navy.

    Russia to Station its Deadliest Submarine Near Alaska

    Located near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the capital city of Russia's Kamchatka Region, the new Rybachiy submarine base will become the new homeport of Russia's most advanced Borei-class (also known as Dolgorukiy-class), Project 955, fourth-generation submarines.

    Alexander Nevsky strategic nuclear submarine not to launch Bulava missile this year

    According to the General Staff source, the Alexander Nevky will arrive in Kamchatka in early September to join the Russian Pacific Fleet

    MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. The Borei-class nuclear submarine Alexander Nevsky will not launch the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile this year after arrival to the Pacific fleet, a source in the Russian Joint Staff told TASS on Thursday.

    "The Alexander Nevsky will not carry out a combat training launch of Bulava on the range in the northwest of Russia this year," the source said.

    A source in the General Staff of the Russian Navy earlier told TASS that the launch of Bulava from the Alexander Nevsky was planned this year from the Sea of Okhotsk on the range in the Arkhangelsk region.

    The first nuclear ballistic missile submarine of the Borey class, the Alexander Nevsky, is due to arrive in Russia’s Pacific Fleet from the Northern Fleet in early September, a source in Russia’s General Staff told TASS on Thursday.

    "In mid-August, the Alexander Nevsky started subglacial passage from the Northern Fleet to the Pacific Fleet for the permanent combat duty. It is expected to arrive in Kamchatka in the first week of September," the source said.

    The submarine has a full allowance of ammunition — 16 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles.

    After arriving in Kamchatka, in Russia’s Far East, the Alexander Nevsky will join the permanent readiness forces of the Pacific Fleet and will be part of the 25th division of submarines with the base in Vilyuchinsk.

    The arrival of the Vladimir Monomakh of the Borey class was earlier postponed because the submarine would have no time to pass all trials and be loaded with missiles.

    A Stone's Throw Away From Alaska: Russian Sub en Route to Kamchatka Base

    Russian Borei-class nuclear-powered ballistic submarine Alexander Nevsky is set to join the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet in late September, a senior Navy representative said on Tuesday.

    Heightened activity of Russia’s nuclear submarines around the world are due to the necessity to deter security threats aimed at Russia.

    Alexander Nevsky, the first nuclear submarine of the Borei-class, started a subglacial passage in mid-August from the Northern Fleet to the Pacific Fleet for permanent combat duty.

    It was expected to arrive at its base in the settlement of Rybachiy in Kamchatka during the first ten-day period of September.

    However, its arrival was postponed due to complex weather and ice conditions and a number of other reasons.

    Another Borei-class submarine, Vladimir Monomakh, is scheduled to arrive in Kamchatka late this year or early next, depending on weather, the official said.

    Alexander Nevsky carries 16 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles with 6-10 nuclear warheads per missile and an effective range of over 5,000 miles.

    Russia's first Borei-class submarine, Yury Dolgoruky, was inducted into the Northern Fleet in January 2013.

    Russia plans to build eight Borei-class nuclear submarines by 2020.

    Nuclear sub Vladimir Monomakh to be transferred to Russia's Pacific Fleet in 2016

    Another Borei class submarine — the Alexander Nevsky, that has entered service with the Pacific Fleet, was put on combat duty in the city of Vilyuchinsk on Septermber 30

    PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 30. /TASS/. The third nuclear-powered submarine of the Borei project — the Vladimir Monomakh ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) — will arrive to the Pacific Fleet in 2016, in accordance with the plan, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Viktor Chirkov said on Wednesday.

    The second Borei class submarine — the Alexander Nevsky, that has entered service with the Pacific Fleet, was put on combat duty in the city of Vilyuchinsk on Wednesday.

    "We hope that the whole shipbuilding program, laid down and approved by the president, will be implemented and next year another boat — the Vladimir Monomakh — will arrive here in accordance with the plan," Chirkov said.

    Two Borei class submarines were originally planned to enter service with the Pacific Fleet this year, however, the transfer of the Vladimir Monomakh boat has been postponed.

    Borei class is a Russian fourth-generation nuclear-powered missile submarine. It is intended to eventually replace the ageing Delta III and Typhoon class submarines and become an important deterrent of the Russian Navy. It is the first class of submarines developed by Russia since the Soviet era. Designated Project 935, it began in 1996 to manufacture the first unit of the Borei class submarine. The project name was changed to Project 955 and the submarine was redesigned to accommodate the new submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) Bulava (SS-NX-30), in place of the abandoned R-39UTTH Bark missile.

    Yury Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky, Vladimir Monomakh and Knyaz Vladimir are the four submarines ordered under this project. These vessels were designed by Rubin Marine Equipment Design Bureau and built by Northern Machine Building Enterprise (Sevmash shipyard). Russia has plans to build eight Borei class submarines for its naval fleet.

    The Alexander Nevsky is the first production Project 955 Borei class ballistic missile submarine and the second one in the series. It embodies the latest noise reduction solutions. The submarine carries the advanced Bulava solid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile (NATO reporting name SS-NX-30). The Russian Navy commissioned the lead ship of the Borei family, the Yuri Dolgoruky, in 2012.

    "The second production submarine, the Vladimir Monomakh, is in its sea trials with the Northern Fleet and is gearing up for the deployment to Kamchatka. The Borei-class Knyaz Vladimir, Knyaz Oleg and Generalissimo Suvorov SSBNs are sitting on the slipways of the Sevmash shipyard in various stages of completion.

    The Russian Navy operates three Borei-class submarines, the flag ship Yury Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh. The first two were commissioned in 2013, while the latest one is in active service since December 2014. The first submarine of the Project 955-A Borei-II class, dubbed Knyaz Vladimir, is expected to enter service in 2017. By 2020, the Russian Navy plans to operate a total of eight Borei class ballistic missile submarines, three Project 955 subs and five Project 955-A vessels. The Borei class submarines are expected to remain in service for decades to come, at least until 2040.
