Russian next generation nuclear powered attack submarines will continue to have a double-hull structure, according to Malakhit design bureau’s deputy general director Nikolai Novoselov.
“The displacement will be roughly similar to that of the Yasen-class subs – some 12,000 tons or even slightly less,” Malakhit’s deputy general director Nikolai Novoselov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“The double-hull design will remain a feature of Russian nuclear-powered attack submarines. We believe it is better than the single-hull design,” he said.
The bureau had been developing the concept of fifth-generation attack subs on its own initiative as the Defense Ministry had not yet provided the company with the list of design specification demands,” he said.
“The next-generation nuclear-powered attack submarines will also be armed with torpedoes, missiles and underwater drones. The underwater drones will be able to detach from the submarine while switched off and power up on command. The submarine will be able to leave the area covertly, while the drone will simulate the submarine’s presence,” Sputnik quoted Nikolai as saying.
