Russia will build diesel-electric submarines for the Pacific Fleet, fifth-generation conventional submarines for the Northern and Baltic fleets
George, since you keep track of all the latest development in the Russia, I had one question. A couple of yers ago there were several reports about a lot of R & D & some mature technology demonstrations on propulsors done in Russia.
Given the fact that Pump-Jet Propulsor & MHD-based drives are the way of the future how soon can we see Russian subs with these features? (France has already incorporated it in the Shortfin Barracuda that it is selling to Australia) Thanks.
