    There are no plans for new laying of nuclear submarine missile carriers "Borey-A"

    According to the head of the Rubin Central Engineering Bureau Igor Vilnit, further submarines of more advanced projects will be laid


    MOSCOW, April 17th. / Tass /. Atomic missile submarines of the type "Borey-A" will no longer be laid. This was reported on Tuesday by TASS head of the Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering "Rubin" Igor Vilnit.

    "Borey-A" will not be pawned anymore, "said Vilnit.

    He made it clear that in the future submarines of more advanced projects will be laid. “Everything will go according to plan,” the head of the bureau concluded.

    This means Borey-B or wait for Husky?

    Lack of money. There will be no more 955A or more advanced 955B.

    So those last two Boreis are getting cancelled?

    Looks like Navy is changing their minds mid-project again as usual

    Calling it now: they will drop the ball and get nothing after all is said and done

    What a drama queen.  Sure you're not Indian? Suspect

    So they will limit the 955 to 3 units and 955A to 5.  So what?  Clearly they are deciding to accelerate the follow-on Huksy SSBN variant.   Seriously, wtf is wrong with you?

    borey B (or as said, Husky variant since they want to streamline ) will be built instead. Only makes sense they are dropping older model.  Plus they are working on the next modular nuclear sub as mentioned by Tass news agency.

    Ignore Arrow guys. He is a proven retard. He has zero knowledge of Russian economy or development and proven it time and time again.

    With me?

    They were doing this same bullsh*t with corvettes: current version is not cool enough, let's cancel them and order cooler ones even though we are short on vessels, it takes forever to get new ones in production and even longer to actually build one

    And when they finally got first new unit up and running they changed their mind again

    Result: desperate shortage of corvettes

    Just watch, they are about to do the same with SSBNs

    No big deal, they can revive BM trains if needed. Besides, the Yasen SSGNs have semi-strategic role & can be used as 2nd strike platforms.

    Even if they only ever make 8 Borei SSBNs... that is 8 x 16 missiles which means 128 missiles in total.

    Their current limits are 1,500 in a year or twos time, which basically equates to about 500 SLBMs, 500 ICBMs, and 500 ALCMs...

    The Bulava carries 6 warheads per missile so that is 768 warheads ... which is actually too many... and that ignores all the Sinevas in the Delta IV SSBNs they have in service too...

    8 Boreis are too many at the moment.

    But after the new START treaty expires they can make or convert as many as they want... trains will be cheaper than subs.

    This isnt the same. We do not know exactly yet as to what they plan. Don't forget they are still building the current ones so there is still time till they decide. But so far, the options are Borei B or Husky which in this case, Husky is going to be probably the smarter choice as it can be both SSBN and SSBM.

    They already made it very clear that Husky can't do SSBN, too small

    And it's been years since any new sub was laid down with years more to go before next one, they are spinning their wheels

    Source: Russia can build two nuclear submarines "Borey-K" with cruise missiles Cool  attack

    According to the source, if the decision is made, the submarines can be handed over to the customer after 2027.


    MOSCOW, April 20. / Tass /. The Ministry of Defense is considering the possibility of building two nuclear submarines of the new Borey-K project, which will become carriers of cruise missiles. This was reported by TASS on Saturday a source in the military-industrial complex of Russia.

    “The military department is considering the creation of two more Boreevs, but not with ballistic missiles, but with long-range cruise missiles. If the decision is made, these submarines will be built according to a new Borey-K project with delivery to the customer after 2027,” - Said the source agency. He did not name the intended characteristics of the new submarines.

    Lack of money Razz

    The article don't say if conventional or not, I think it's kalibr-M or Super Giant Zirkon.
    They are thinking along in Navy, I prefer Borey-K to Borey-B!

    Well as they retire Delta IV subs there will be plenty of hulls to fill with cruise missiles if they want them... I mean these weapons they will be using... 4,500km range calibrs and perhaps 1,000km plus mach 9 Zircons... it is not like they need to get very close to their targets for their attack... as an example in Syria, there is no way ISIS could sink any type of submarine let alone a Delta IV, and with hundreds of missiles it could hit large numbers of targets over a very long period of time before needing to reload...

    By 2027 the new START treaty will mean nothing and it seems to me nothing will be signed to replace it... mostly because you can bet the US and the EU will demand hypersonic missiles will be included, while murder bots will not until Russia has some and then they will be included too.

    Delta IV which will be 40 years old will be withdrawn and not converted into SSGN. In 2030 it will be very old submarine.

    yes, SSGN. My bad and thanks for correction.

    Looks like they are now working to make Borei a multipurpose based submarine. This could possibly be what Husky program was and this is all leading up to a new series of subs. Very interesting.

    Interesting.
    Could free up Husky from having to be an expensive SSGN (VLS tubes add complexity & size -> cost) & just concentrate on being a relatively affordable SSN that can be built fairly quick in numbers?

    YES!!, i was hoping for this
    A Borei SSGN would be the best, it's a good stopgap until Lider or the Super-Gorshkov are ready, and since the design is already in production it shouldn't take too long to get it in the water, although 2027 is oddly on the high side.

    And cheap...for some 800 mio you can get more missiles than on 3,5 bn Yasen. And on even more quiet, pump-jet sub. British will start snorting again.

    Price of Yasens dropped now that it's in production (first ship was more expensive as always) but yeah Boreis are still cheaper

    Best way to go about this would be:

    -Borei SSBN for nuclear role

    -Borei SSGN to perform the role currently done by Oscar SSGN and to act as land attack platform, Ohio-style

    -Yasen and Husky to replace Akulas, Sierras and other SSNs
