Advanced nuclear-powered sub Knyaz Vladimir to be delivered to Russian Navy by late June
MOSCOW, April 13. /TASS/. The Project 955A (Borei-A) lead nuclear-powered submarine Knyaz Vladimir will be delivered to the Russian Navy by late June and the vessel will undergo at least one sea trial before that date, a source in the Russian defense industry told TASS.
"The Project 955A lead nuclear-powered submarine is planned to be delivered to the Russian Navy before the end of the first half of the year, i.e. before the end of June," the source said. "Before that time the vessel will certainly undergo at least one more sea trial, perhaps even two or three more sea trials."
The source added that the additional sea trials were necessary "to check the operability of the vessel’s all units and systems following the work on the elimination of shortcomings, which were detected during the trials in 2019."
