the Reason for such a statement is more than noticeable: in the battle was composed of the fourth of the eight strategic nuclear submarines of the series “Northwind” and “Borey-A”, incorporated into the existing State armaments program. Four “Boreas-A” with the already known names (“Prince Oleg”, “Generalissimo Suvorov”, “Emperor Alexander III” and “Prince Pozharsky”) is now on the slipway of the Severodvinsk shipyard in various stages of construction.
If you follow the previously approved plans, “Prince Oleg” this year must go down to the water, to experience and take in the combat component. Given the overall shift to the right all acceptance program 2020 due to pandemic coronavirus, the problem is more than problematic.
But the commander of the Navy today was optimistic. After the new commander of submarine captain I rank Vyacheslav Teams raised on the flagpole naval flag ship, the Admiral Evmenov congratulated the crew on the remarkable event. And said the following.
“We are opening a new era, which will a series of such wonderful ships, – quotes its words a press-service of the shipyard. – I, as commander in chief of the Navy, happy that the ranks of the Navy joins the new strategic cruiser. This tradition will continue – the ships will be sold with high quality and on time. Suppose to take this year a few such ships.”
General Director of “Sevmash” Mikhail Budnichenko noted that the cruiser “Prince Vladimir” was the 133 ship built at the shipyard for the Navy. And how many more will be added this year to make not. Just reminded what a difficult epidemiological conditions, the shipbuilders were preparing and providing the control output of “Prince Vladimir” in the sea to confirm the elimination of previously identified comments.
According to Budnichenko, the baseline test in may showed that the first of the “Bor”, built by the modernized project 955A, “will serve Russia” in the ship “embodies the most advanced engineering developments”, it is “part of our hearts and the work of the shipbuilders of Sevmash and hundreds of contractors’ organizations.”
