    Well okay that's some more material but still it doesn't make much sense.

    So Virginia has an average noise of 95 dB and twice better would be 92 dB, considering that decibels dont scale lineraly. But Russian/Soviet 3rd gen SSBNs classes Akula, Kalmar and Delfin have noises of 100 - 110 dB at speed of 4 - 8 kn, according to this and this sources.

    Meaning that a 92 dB Borey would need to be much more than five times more quiet than 3rd gen, even more than ten times! It would be the most quiet submarine in the world by far. But the only official estimate from the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence suggests that Yasen is more quiet, although still noisier than capitallist Virginia.

    How much evaluate Yasen in dB? Borey-A has a new pupm jet propulsion. Yasen/YasenM standard screw.

    No need for sources. No one will know those numbers on the net so everything you read is crap.

    Neither would any official tell any real number. They will only say "our is better" since submarine and specially SSBN are highly classified.

    Propulsion is only one part of the story:

    https://thaimilitaryandasianregion.wordpress.com/2017/04/08/yasen-graney-class-submarine-project-885885m/ wrote:The new layout method ECUs and auxiliary equipment, cooling systems and reduce the noise power allowed by 10-15 dB. Used vibration-laminated beams, stanchions, conduits and duct elements, other designs, reducing vibration noise by 10-30 dB. The equipment is mounted on a vibration-absorbing honeycomb body made of composite materials. Each structural unit is covered with sound-insulating panels. The housing is covered with a rubber protivogidroakusticheskim PLA coating. The boat used active damping system (SAG) to limit the noise of discrete frequency components of 50-500 Hz.

    On SSGNs pr.885M expected use protivogidroakusticheskih type body coverings “Lightning-M” and “Lightning-M-control.” On submarines implemented outboard reinforcement circulation routes or analogous type “Fin”.

    According to Miasnikov from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology every generation is about 5 db quieter than the previous one so Borey and Yasen should both be about 95 db or roughly the same as Virginia. Perhaps Virginia 95 db, Yasen 96 db and Borey 97 db at 4 - 8 kn (just to give the idea of the order, not real numbers).

    SSBN base in Rybachy, Kamchatka is being expanded for more Boreis, so much for ''Bulava/Borei don't work''

    They clearly borrowed Cobras weather dominator.
