Bad weather delayed the testing of three Russian nuclear submarines
 
The Yury Dolgoruky SSBN, the Alexander Nevsky SSBN and the Severodvinsk SSN all had to delay their sea trials because of the bad weather conditions on the white sea.

The ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) Yury Dolgoruky is ready to sail to continue testing of the Bulava missile, said an industry source.

Two missiles were loaded on board the submarine, one is directed to the test range in Kamchatka, the other is a model for measuring the effects of a salvo launch from the submarine.

The Yury Dolgoruky was supposed to carry out the tests between October 20 and October 22. The launches have been delayed due to bad weather.

The first submarine of Borei class, the Alexander Nevsky was also prepared for her first trip to the sea, but because of very bad weather in the White Sea, the sea trials were delayed.

The head submarine of Yasen class, the multi-role nuclear powered attack submarine (SSN) Severodvinsk is also waiting for the weather to improve to continue her sea trials. The Sevmash shipyard is facing a tense schedule, since it must perform simultaneous sea trials for three submarines.

Two of these submarines, the Yury Dolgoruky SSBN and Severodvinsk SSN, are scheduled to be delivered to the Russian Navy by the end of this year.
