The first Borey-class submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, was commissioned into the Northern Fleet in January 2013. The fourth-generation Borei-class sub, with new and improved ballistic missile capabilities, is one of the eight major projects to be completed by 2020 that aim to form the core of the Russian Navy's nuclear deterrence strategy over the coming decades.

The Severodvinsk is one of eight Yasen-class attack boats ordered by the Russian navy. The second, third and fourth subs of the series, the Kazan ,the Novosibirsk and the Krasnoyarsk, are being built under the updated Project 885M Yasen-M design.

The Severodvinsk has a submerged displacement of 13,800 tons, length of 119 meters, speed of 31 knots, and can dive to 600 meters. It has a crew of 90 including 32 officers.

Its main armament consists of 24 Oniks (SS-N-26) and Kalibr (SS-N-27) cruise missiles, self-guided torpedoes and mines.
