    If modifying the Typhoons wasn't so expensive

    Post  Tsavo Lion on Tue Feb 13, 2018 9:23 pm

    Good recap: http://svpressa.ru/war21/article/192560/?cba=1

    If modifying the Typhoons wasn't so expensive, they too could be modified for Calibres. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoon-class_submarine#History

    Meanwhile, the Borey #s may eventually be cut to save more $.

    They will never cut Boreis before they develop replacment it's the only SSBN they have in production

    Time will tell! The US will soon build more BMD sites, incl. on the E. Coast, to cover all vectors. The new fad is "non-nuclear deterrence", so
    costly Boreys r redundant & a burden on the budjet!
    As I mentioned on another tread, sea bottom based BMs r enough & lake Baikal could host those &/ smaller subs with Sineva SLBMs as well. Such subs won't need any torpedoes, countermeasures & personnel to defend itself.

    You do realize that they will never be able to intercept enough missiles to prevent extermination of population? Those sites are irrelevant for Russian naval planning.

    Lake Baikal? Are you kidding me?

    They already have something better in that region, it's called Topol-M and Yars.

    Baikal not but sea-bottom it is already being implemented.

    Bondarev: Russian Armed Forces have hypersonic "Zircon" missiles and Skif sea-bottom based missiles

    Skiff - Wiki

    "Scythian" is a promising ballistic missile of the sea-bottom basing. It is developed by the design bureau "Rubin" and the State Missile Center named after Academician Makeev , commissioned by the Defense Ministry. The "Skif" ballistic deep-sea rocket is capable of being in standby mode on the sea or ocean floor before receiving the launch command. [1]

    If AMD can stop enough warheads to have "acceptable extermination" of population then it is a successful project and no strategical balance.

    How exactly would they cut the Borei numbers? From the current 8? Or from the total 12, 4 of which (Borei-B) won't be built anytime soon anyway? PapaDragon is totally correct, that won't happen.

    Russia is likely pursuing to maintain a 12 to 16 SSBNs fleet.

    They are obviously quite on track and there is no reason they would cut Borei's numbers.

    The project is sound and build time is after all reasonable.

    the first eight are all nearing completion, and at least the Delta III should in a few years start to be retired if Russia plans for a 12 boats SSBN fleet.

    If the Delta III would not be retired within the next few years,it would mean Russia is aiming at an even greater number of SSBNs.

    Any cut under the 12 boats SSBN fleet limit is just not possible.

    Project 667BDR (Delta III) SSBNs - K-223 Podolsk, K-433 Sv. Georgiy Pobedonosets, removed from service
    This leaves only one operational Project 667BDR/Delta III submarine - Ryazan, which returned from overhaul in February 2017.

    A few days ago Rosatom put out a request for tenders for "unloading spent nuclear fuel from decommissioned submarines of the Project 667BDR class, Nos. 395 and 397" (h/t @7FBTK). These submarines are K-223 Podolsk and K-433 Svyatoy Georgiy Pobedonosets respectively. I take it these two submarines have been withdrawn from service.

    So there are two Delta IIIs in service... the one SSBN you mention after its overhaul and the one that was modified into a mothership for mini subs and other undersea "research"...

    Τula completed overhaul in late December and its in phase of entering back in service. Bryansk entered overhaul after Tula

    Man, I want them to order another Yasen SSGN so hard.

    Seriously what's the holdup? They need it and I know they are good for it...

    Yasen are usually laid down in July (5 of 6 of the 855Ms have been) , I assume because its the Northern summer? I guess we'll find out soon-ish if a 7th hull is in the works...

    Chances for another Yasen are insignificant, because seven were initially planned:

    They are the most expensive sumarines made in the recent history, even more than Seawolf class. Even US navy couldn't afford 3,5 bn submarines, let alone Russia. Thus, they're getting ready for the first boat of new, cheaper Husky class, which should be laid down in 2020/2021

    This summer, Malakhit will present the design.

    They planned more than seven

    And while they are expensive they are also worth every cent

    Waiting for Husky this long would be pretty dumb, it's 3 years away at earliest and that without taking into account mandatory delays that always occur, they should use those 3 years instead of wasting time

    They finally warmed up production of Yasen class so they should take advantage of it while they still can, saving several hundred million on a product like SSGN is pretty insignificant given what you get in the end

    Get serious, the $3.5B "cost" of Kazan incorrectly includes all the R&D, design documentation and revised tooling for the entire 885M series ... the costs should be spread out over the full program to appreciate the true costs, not all lumped onto the lead vessel of the series.

    Someone is playing dirty politics with this agitprop BS.

    Someone is playing dirty politics with this agitprop BS.

    It's not BS, the minister of defence at the time had concerns about the growing prices of this project and it had to do with corruption. The project shouldn't be that much expensive now. It has the design of Akula and the VLS are build in big numbers for all the ships of Russian forces so if they keep with Yasen the cost could be greatly reduced to a very good price.

    Husky is supposed to be less capable than Yasen. It is actually the basis for a SSN ( cheaper and smaller and less capable than Yasen) and a SSGN which we don't know the number of missiles carried which is the principal capability of a SSGN.

    The price for those two Husky variant should be great too and not that much diferent from Yasen so in my opinion they will make the same mistake as geting Sovs and Udaloys instead of 1 better destroyer. So instead of having 20 Yasen they could end up with 10 SSN husky and 10 SSGN husky.

    Going with anything less capable than Yasen is flat out stupidity and criminal negligence

    USA, China and Europe are not sitting on their asses (first two at least), there is no going back in this game
