The Russian Navy inducts third Borey-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, the Vladimir Monomakh, the Sevmash shipyard reported.
The submarine will soon leave a naval base in Severodvinsk in northern Russia to join the 25th Submarine Division of the Pacific Fleet based in Russia's Far East.
Borey-class submarines are to become the mainstay of the naval component of Russia's strategic nuclear deterrent, replacing the aging Typhoon-class and Delta-class boats. Russia expects a total of eight Borey subs to enter service with the navy by 2020.
The first two Borey-class nuclear subs, the Yury Dolgoruky and the Alexander Nevsky, were commissioned in January and December 2013 respectively. The fourth and fifth subs of the class, the Knyaz Vladimir and the Knyaz Oleg, are currently under construction at the Sevmash shipyard.
Sevmash confirmed Friday that construction of the sixth Borey-class submarine, the Knyaz Suvorov, will start on December 26.
The Russian Air Force will continue to procure 150 aircraft and master the use of brand new weapons this year. "Consistent with the 2015 state defense order, the troops will be supplied with over 150 helicopters and planes", Defense Ministry spokesman for the Air Force Col
