The United Shipbuilding Corporation will hand over five submarines to the Navy in 2023
The Russian Navy in 2023 will be replenished with three nuclear and two diesel submarines, said Alexei Rakhmanov, CEO of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC). Two more nuclear submarines will return to service after repairs.
Which submarines should enter the Russian Navy:
- "Emperor Alexander III" project 955 "Borey-A";
- "Krasnoyarsk" project 885M "Ash-M";
- "Khabarovsk" project 09852, the submarine should become a regular carrier of unmanned underwater vehicles "Poseidon" with a nuclear warhead;
- "Mozhaysk" project 636.3 "Varshavyanka";
- "Kronstadt" project 677 "Lada".
Mr. Rakhmanov said that the task of USC is to reduce the construction period of nuclear submarines from seven to six years. “These plans should be implemented by 2028. The new construction dates will apply to ships that will be laid down in 2027,” said the CEO of the corporation "RIA News". They plan to achieve reductions in terms with the help of new technological solutions and debugging of production processes during serial construction. Now, from the lead ship to the first production ship and from the first production ship to the second, the labor intensity of the standard hour is reduced by 20%, after that - by 10–12%.
President Vladimir Putin in February informedthat with the acceptance into the Navy of the submarine cruiser "Emperor Alexander III" of the project "Borey-A", the share of modern weapons and equipment in the naval strategic nuclear forces will reach 100%. According to him, "three more cruisers of this project will replenish the combat strength of the fleet in the coming years."
