Russia has scheduled to float out second modernized Yasen-class project 885M submarine on March 31.
Russia plans to have at least eight Yasen class cruise-missile carrying attack vessels in its submarine fleet. A series of Russian Yasen-class (Severodvinsk-class) nuclear-powered submarines will be ready by 2023.
The Severodvinsk vessel has a submerged displacement of 13,800 tons, a length of some 390 feet. It can travel at speeds up to 31 knots (about 36 miles per hour), and can dive to depths of more than 1,700 feet.
The submarine is armed with naval mines, the Oniks and Kalibr anti-ship missiles and a range of torpedoes. Yasen-class project 885 submarines were designed by St. Petersburg's Malachite mechanical engineering bureau.
According to Russia’s Naval Doctrine, the Yasen-class submarines will become the main multipurpose nuclear-powered subs in the Russian Navy.
