    I can see there are one Delta 3 and five Delta 4 still in active service, servicelife is coming to an end with this very succesful class of SSBNs. The last will probably be decomissioned by the late 2020s, ie sometime 2027-2028.

    AFAIK the Delta III is not an SSBN, but has been converted into a sort of rescue ship and diver and drone platform research ship... taking over from the India class subs.....

    IIRC Orenburg (BS-126) was converted to as a mini-sub tender, but Ryazan (K-44) is still in service?

    Makes sense, those are delivery dates for Borei SSBNs

    Well that sucks. Probably damage from the fire it had back in 2011 was not fully recovered and the navy has decided that another dry dock repair and refit is not feasible.

    Deltas are old and Boreis are coming online, no need to drag out the inevitable

    Delta IV is a well-regarded sub, home, and abroad. And given that the Layner missile is quite modern and formidable, I think Deltas will easily serve an additional decade-plus. I don't think there'll be a rush to decommission them.

    Decade plus is about time until all Boreis come into service so it all fits
