Still better than relying on even older akulas, deltas and oscars.
Husky is already started. It's gonna be the low price SSN they need. Boreis will operate under the north pole where even deltas can't be found no need better and it is pretty cheap. Yasen brings a fire power of 40 supersonic AShM and LACM for the size of an akula.
In comparison to 2BN$ Virginias and similar price Astutes, Husky will be cheap indeed.
