Skip to comments.Putin Attends Nuclear Sub Ceremony (fourth Borei class sub)

Russian President Vladimir Putin participated on Monday in a ceremony to launch construction of Russias fourth Borei-class (Project 955A) ballistic missile submarine.
By 2020, we should have eight Borei-class submarines, he said. Two of them - the Alexander Nevsky and one other - are in trials. I am sure the entire project will be implemented.
The ceremony for the boat, the Knyaz Vladimir, was held at Sevmash, Russias largest shipyard and sole nuclear submarine maker located in the port city of Severodvinsk on the White Sea.
More new-generation warships - both surface ships and submarines - should be built for Russias new-look Navy, complete with advanced weapons, command and control, and communication systems, Putin said.
The Borei class is expected to become the mainstay of the Russian Navy's strategic nuclear deterrent, replacing the aging Project 941 (Typhoon class) and Project 667 class (Delta-3 and Delta-4) boats.

It’s China we need to worry more about. Too bad Obozo is more likely to push the Russians and Chinese ever closer.
Ya going to sink this one with its own torpedo too?
