Soviet and Russian nuclear submarine of the 4th and 5th generations. Part 2
Series production of nuclear submarines in the Russian fifth generation will begin after 2030. On Wednesday, December 19, RIA Novosti reported with reference to the Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov.
Now the Navy submarine are the third generation. They were replaced in the near future will come fourth generation nuclear submarine project 955 "Borey" and 885 "Ash."
According Chirkova, quoted by "Interfax", the first submarine of the "Northwind" - "Yuri Dolgoruky" - can be put into service until the end of 2012. "Subject to the completion of the final phase of testing of individual systems, which is currently carried out, signed acceptance certificate will be possible until December 30," - said the admiral.
Earlier adoption of the "Yury Dolgoruky", which is armed with intercontinental ballistic missile R-30 "Bulava", repeatedly postponed. Until the end of 2012 as planned to complete state tests second submarine of project 955 "Alexander Nevsky".
The lead ship of the "Ash", the submarine "Severodvinsk", according Chirkova, will join the Navy in 2013. Now, said the admiral, the submarine is a full-scale test. In November, the first submarine cruise missiles to shoot "Calibre" on ground targets. According Chirkova, submarine project "Ash" can engage ground targets in 1.5 thousand kilometers from the coast.
Total Navy planned in 2020 to arm ten ships of the "Northwind". By 2021, as anticipated seven ships of the "clear."
In the course of talking to journalists Viktor Chirkov also spoke about the construction of surface ships for the Navy. The admiral said that in the medium term basis naval surface forces in the far-and near-sea area of the project will amount to 2235.0 frigates and corvettes Project 2038.0. According to the draft 2038.0 built three ships ("Guarding", "Savvy" and "Courageous"), two of which are accepted for service.
The main ocean-going ships, according to Viktor Chirkov, in the medium term will be the destroyer of the new project. The ship will have a large impact and defensive capabilities, including in the field of missile defense.
By 2016, according to the Commander, Navy will also receive six frigates of Project 1135.6. In 2013, the system will enter a large landing ship (LST) "Ivan Gren" Project 1171.1. BDK descent to the water is scheduled for May.

All submarine project "Pike-B" will be the average repair
"Defense has decided to hold the third-generation submarine repair. Speaking specifically about the 971 project, the world two years ago and successfully defended a project to repair the ships," - said Dorofeyev.
MOSCOW, March 19 - RIA Novosti. All nuclear submarines of project 971 (code "Pike-B") will be the average repair and with the "clear" the group will form the basis of multi-purpose submarines of the Navy of Russia in the next decade, according to RIA Novosti General Director of JSC "St. Petersburg Naval Machinery Bureau" Malachite "Vladimir Dorofeev.
"Defense has decided to hold the third-generation submarine repair. Speaking specifically about the 971 project, the world two years ago and successfully defended a project to repair the ships. Now the first ship is already on the" star ", raised in the shop, and did are repairs, "- said Dorofeyev.
The need for such measures due to the fact that during the existence of nuclear submarines of the third generation of multi-purpose, none of these ships did not pass the average depot repair, said Dorofeyev. By the summer of experts "Malachite" finished all the drawings for the repair and modernization of 971 project. First of all, the boats will be equipped with new electronic weapons complexes.
"Contractions now is not one ship, but on a series of ships - in order to provide a clear program of the plant, group purchasing of the equipment. Appointed the following ships of the series. Upgraded 971 project will be a new quality. These boats, along with submarines under construction, Project 885 form the basis of a general-purpose naval forces of the domestic Navy "- said Dorofeyev
3/19/13 SEVEN AND NOT EIGHT SUBMARINES WILL BE IN "CLEAR"
March 19 2013.
RIA Novosti . A series of submarine project 885 "Yasen" will consist of seven instead of eight submarines of this class, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Director General of "St. Petersburg Naval Machinery Bureau" Malachite "Vladimir Dorofeev.
Previously, the command of the Navy of the Russian Federation has stated its intention to order the eight multi-purpose submarine project 885 "Yasen". However, in the beginning of the year, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Navy until 2020 will get seven boats of this project.
"Now, the first ship of the series" Severodvinsk "is the factory sea trials and this year should be necessarily passed the Defense Ministry. Second," Kazan ", is now on the stocks," Sevmash. "We will build five more ships modernized series," - said Dorofeyev .
Over a series of Project 885 submarines modernized definitely do not plan to make significant changes to the set of weapons and other systems, "clear", said Dorofeyev.
"The issue of the third tab" Ash "is discussed, and it is, to some extent, a political question. From a technical point of view, the construction of the ship began the day after the signing of the contract, at the moment is a specific section on the stocks, technical readiness of over 10 percent. A bookmark can be done this year, "- he added.

These days with minuturisation of Electronics , Development of Power Motor powered by high density Li Ion battery , a 533 mm torpedo is as or far more capable then the 80's developed 650 mm Torpedo.
GarryB wrote:Which means a modern 650mm torpedo would be even better today.
The primary function of the heavies was a standoff capability against carrier groups etc, a mission as relevant today as it was in the 1980s... the potential for improved performance however is enormous.
An added bonus is that a 650mm torpedo tube is easier for divers to climb out of, and could provide a much larger and more useful under water vehicle for divers to approach enemy waters...
I haven't heard anything about new 650mm torpedo production.
Safe to count that out.
We will continue our meeting [on strategic missile forces] in reference to the Navy. I don’t need to talk about how important the naval component is within our three-pronged strategic nuclear deterrence forces. In Russia the Armed Forces, including strategic nuclear deterrence forces, must be balanced; for this reason we intend to and shall pay appropriate attention to the Navy in general, and its strategic component in particular.
As you know, in January 2013 the new nuclear-powered missile cruiser Yury Dolgoruky was commissioned into the Navy. Next year, in the near future, two more boats – Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh – will be commissioned in, and by 2020 eight nuclear-powered submarines will be deployed.
What would I like to draw attention to? To deadlines, prices, and harmonising work to build and modernise the fleet, with that related to weapons. Weapons must become available simultaneously with the release of the carriers themselves, the submarines. And of course, coastal infrastructure too; but we talked about this with the Navy Commander and the Defence Minister, and today we’ll discuss it in even more detail.
I would like Mr Vilnit to say a few words, and then Mr Dorofeyev.
Please go ahead.
CEO OF RUBIN CENTRAL DESIGN BUREAU FOR MARINE ENGINEERING IGOR VILNIT: Mr President,
The Borei class strategic submarine cruiser has been built. The lead ship under this project has been commissioned into the Navy.
The first serial Borei class ship has completed the necessary tests, including state ones, and today is being prepared for deployment in the Navy.
The second ship under this project is currently undergoing sea trials; once those are finished it will undergo state tests later on this year.
At present, work is underway to create the new modernised Borei-A project, which provides for a whole range of improvements for Borei design ships.
Work to create such a ship is underway. All enterprises involved know their tasks and are ready to supply the appropriate weapons. Ongoing work to build these ships is proceeding according to plan.
Today non-nuclear ships are also being built for our Navy. All the work to build 636 and 677 Lada class submarines is being carried out according to plan.
Simultaneously, work is underway to establish a special air-independent propulsion power plant for these vessels, in order to significantly improve their capacities for future fifth-generation ships.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Thank you.
CEO OF MALACHITE CENTRAL DESIGN BUREAU FOR MARINE ENGINEERING VLADIMIR DOROFEYEV: Mr President,
This year state tests of the Severodvinsk multipurpose nuclear submarine, the lead ship of the Project 885 [Yasen class] submarines, have been completed. Ongoing state tests are now finished.
During these tests we successfully simulated missile launches, both cruise missiles designed to destroy surface ships, and those designed to destroy long-range coastal targets.
Once this ship is deployed, our Navy, Defence Ministry, and the state will be able to use it to carry out a new function, namely non-strategic nuclear deterrence through the use of high-precision long-range cruise missiles.
Dozens of industrial enterprises and scientific organisations participated in building this ship, which was done at the Sevmash shipyard. That was my report.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: In October some submarines left the shipyard docks. In general, everything went very well. How would you evaluate this work?
RUSSIAN NAVY COMMANDER ADMIRAL VIKTOR CHIRKOV: Comrade Commander-in-Chief,
Under your leadership, we carried out strategic military exercises to manage our strategic nuclear forces. During these we conducted missile firing exercises in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Barents Sea. Shooting exercises were completed normally, and all deviations were also within normal limits. Personnel accomplished the tasks they were set. The goals of these exercises were achieved.
VLADIMIR PUTIN: Good, thank you.
