The Alexander Nevsky was expected to be handed over to the Navy on November 15, while the third Borey-class sub (Vladimir Monomakh) was due to be commissioned in mid-December, Sevmash chief Mikhail Budnichenko said in July.

Ballistic missile submarines comprise one leg of Russia’s strategic nuclear triad, along with land-based ICBMs and the bomber force.

The Borey is Russia’s first post-Soviet ballistic missile submarine class and will form the mainstay of the strategic submarine fleet, replacing aging Typhoon, Delta-3 and Delta-4 boats.

Russia ultimately expects eight Borey-class subs to enter service by 2020. The third in the class, the Vladimir Monomakh, is expected to start state-acceptance trials this month.
