    Radioelectronic weapons of lead submarine of Yasen project totally renewed

    The lead submarine of project 885 The Severodvinsk entered duty on June 17, 2014

    MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. The radio-electronic equipment of the lead Yasen submarine of project 855 has been fundamentally upgraded, its designer has told TASS.

    "The lead submarine of project 885 The Severodvinsk entered duty on June 17, 2014. While the lead ship was under construction, its radio-electronic weapons were totally renewed. Yasen is a universal carrier of missiles and torpedoes. With its missiles, stealth features and speed this is the first submarine ever capable of operating against ships and performing deterrence functions," the Malakhit design bureau said.

    The next six ships in the series are being built according to the upgraded project 885M (Yasen-M). Also, work is in progress to build multi-role nuclear powered submarines of the fifth generation," Malakhit said.

    Yasen is a fourth generation multi-role submarine. It is armed with Oniks and Kalibr cruise missiles. It has no torpedo tubes in the fore compartment, which houses a hydro-acoustic complex with a spherical antenna capable of identifying enemy ships at a great distance.

    The St. Petersburg-based Marine Engineering Bureau Malakhit was established on March 31, 1948. Over the past seventy years it has delivered more than 50 projects, used to build more than 300 submarines, including 100 equipped with nuclear power plants. Malakhit designed Russia’s first missile-carrying submarine, the first nuclear powered submarine K-3 (project 627) and the world’s first titanium high-speed nuclear powered submarine.

    RT put out the Kazan Military Acceptance video but with some english narration & subtitles

    Interestingly they say Kazan has more missile tubes presumably meaning compared to Severodvinsk & that they fire Onyx presumably also implying Severodvinsk doesn't?! Suspect

    The presenter ruins his credibility when he says that the Soviet-era design for a tank-carrying amphibious submarine monstrosity is in production.....   Suspect

    Yeah that was really odd.
    I wonder if there was some low quality translating involved or did he actually say that in Russian?
    Certainly puts other claims in question.

    The first Yazen was laid down in the 80's so there will be differences between the first ship and others, with such a wide gap this is to be expected.

    I would assume someone made a translation error, it happens it's just funny somehow no one caught that in post-production.

    .............

    Any hopes for some extra boats in this class? Or are they letting this year go by empty?

    There was a 4 year gap between Kazan being laid down (July 2009) and Novosibirsk (July 2013) so unless its progressing super quick probably not.
    Should be a lot quicker than the previous 2 though.

    Dammit, they need just one more to get 50:50 split between North and Pacific, hope they don't blow this opportunity, Yasen is way too good. They should be going for double digits here...

    Oh you mean laying down an 8th? You'd think so but the order appears to be only for 7.

    I would love this boat in place of old Bars or Schuka. Clearly the navy needs number to remain relevant against myriad numbers of potential enemy submarines. As well as to keep the skill up.

    In lighter news

    https://www.msn.com/en-ie/news/world/putins-red-october-submarines-in-uk-waters-are-undetectable-russias-deadly-super-steal-subs-could-give-navy-the-slip-mod-admit/ar-BBN3QyE?li=BBoPRmx
    In which UK 'Defense sources' claim that a Yasen A has been poking around the UK sub base at Faslane and
    Earlier this year, it was revealed that there has been a tenfold increase in Russian submarine activity in UK waters since 2015. But the actual numbers and the locations visited by Russian submarines remain classified for security reasons.
    They know but they don't because the new sub is undetectable by SOSUS & Royal Navy sonar.

    Reality:
    Yasen-A = Kazan which hasn't even started sea trials yet as far as I'm aware.
    Russian sub poking around Faslane will be a reference to the incident where an Irish fisher had his net caught up by a sub & nearly capsized with much public outrage & from recollection an official demand for the Russian Ambassador to Please Explain.
    ...Except the Royal Navy subsequently admitted the culprit was infact a Royal Navy sub on its way from Faslane to NATO wargames North of Ireland sunny
    I'd bet real money the only 'Russian submarine activity in UK waters' has infact been the 6* BSF Kilos transiting openly, unthreateningly & entirely legally, on the surface.
    Similarly the sniffing around cables & pipes is reference to the evidence-free, 100% political claim that Russia is planning to cut-off the UK from the world by breaking all the cables made around the time the UK Defense budget was being decided.
    Oh and completely irrelevantly Borei-A is a thing dunno

    They should send an old SSBN there on surface 24/7 all the year full of ICBM just to piss them off lol1 They would have to have a constant surveillance on it and use all their navy ships for that.

    Considering this, you'd expect even stronger presence in Scottish waters. After all, it's perfectly consistent with the increase in Russian air force activity around the world.

    Great idea. Imagine the Donskoy travelling around the british isles for four month. The NSH would break down because hundreds of politicans and journalists would get a stroke or heart attack. Very Happy

    No. Its half UK territorial waters, half French.
    Ships including military have the right to pass through but its still actually entering territorial waters.

    No. The claim is that a ship (Kazan the only launched Yasen-A) thats never even set sail on trials yet has been poking around inside UK territorial waters undetected but they know its been happening *somehow*.
    Its obviously a bunch of bullshit.

    They should send an old SSBN there on surface 24/7 all the year full of ICBM just to piss them off
    No. Its better to just keep doing perfectly innocent unthreatening passages like they have been.
    If they did something openly threatening like that it'd make the silly transparent propaganda not so silly.

    Novachok is useless... it only kills one in 5 people who come in to contact with it... the one killed has to spray large amounts on themselves before it becomes effective...

    Territorial waters are legally about 7 miles... I thought the channel is more than 14 miles across...

    Don't confuse territorial waters with exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

    NATO countries tend to tell the same lie regarding airspace too.

    Territorial Waters = 12nm = 22.2km & the channel is only about 33km wide at the narrowest point.

    No its Kazan starting seatrials, it launched back in April 2017 https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3352843.html
    On September 24, 2018, for the first time, the main underwater cruiser K-561 "Kazan", the modified project 08851 (885M, the code "Yasen-M"), built at JSC "Production Association" Northern Machine Building " enterprise "(SMP). goes to the factory sea trials from Severodvinsk
    ...
    The withdrawal of the nuclear submarine "Kazan" from the workshop of the Northern Sea Fleet to the launching dock "Sukhona" was carried out on March 31, 2017, and the ship's fusical descent to water from the floating dock was carried outApril 8, 2017.

    Good timing to refute the BS about 'Yasen-A' (ie Kazan) 'poking around Faslane' unshaven
