The fourth-generation Project 885 and 885M nuclear-powered attack submarines armed with torpedoes and missiles are designed for destroying surface ships, submarines and land targets. A submarine in the class has a total displacement of 13,800 tons, dives to 600 m and moves under water at a speed of 30 knots. Its outer hull covers only the bow of the pressure hull to reduce the acoustic signature. The torpedo tubes are installed aft of the central control compartment, rather than in the bow for the first time in the history of Russia’s shipbuilding. The submarines of the class carry Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) and Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) cruise missiles and a formidable torpedo/missile system.
