About the submarine Severodvinsk

The Severodvinsk is a Project 885 Yasen-class nuclear-powered submarine. It incorporates many technical solutions that have not been used on Russian submarines before.

The Yasen-class lead submarine, the Severodvinsk, was laid down by the Sevmash Shipyard on December 21, 1993, and launched on June 15, 2010. On September 12, 2011, the nuclear-powered sub-K-329 Severodvinsk went to sea for the first time for sea trials.

The possibility of combining missile weapons enables the submarine to accomplish a wide range of combat missions, from hitting stationary ground targets with 3M-14 missiles to fighting enemy submarines and destroying all types of surface ships with 3M-54 Kalibr and P-800 Onyx anti-ship missiles.
