According to the accompanying plate, the fifth-generation nuclear submarine of Project 545 (code "Laika-Navy") is designed to destroy critical enemy targets, destroy surface ships, submarines, ships and boats, enemy stationary fixed structures.
The main performance characteristics: displacement - 11340 tons, speed - 35 knots, autonomy - 90 days, maximum immersion depth - 600 meters.
The main armament: 3M-14 Kalibr, ZM-22 Zircon, 3M-55 Onyx, SAM for MANPADS Igla, rockets 81RU “Response”, missiles “Predator”, torpedoes “Physicist-1”, torpedoes USET-80, anti-torpedoes "Lasta", mini-missile PMR-2, mine-torpedoes MTPK-1.
The project developer is JSC “St. Petersburg Marine Bureau of Engineering“ Malachite ”named after Academician N. N. Isanin (JSC“ SPMSBM Malakhit ”). Recall that in April 2019 it was reported that JSC SPMPBM“ Malachite ”began an experimental design work (OKR) under the code "Laika" to create a fifth-generation nuclear submarine for the Russian Navy. Earlier at the end of 2018, the Malachite SMBM completed research work under the Husky code to determine the appearance of a fifth-generation nuclear submarine, the results of the work were approved by the Russian Ministry of Defense, and the bureau began the next step in creating a promising nuclear submarine code "Laika".
It was reported that one of its types of strike weapons would be 3M22 Zircon hypersonic missiles, and it was announced that Laika would have a modular design and a single integrated combat control system with artificial intelligence. "
In June 2018, in the annual report of the Malachite SPMBM, it was reported that the R&D for the creation of a promising multi-purpose nuclear submarine of a new generation should begin in 2019. The document noted that the implementation of work is provided for by the draft State Armament Program for the period 2018-2027, the code of work was not indicated.
