Sevmash Shipyard Delivers Nuclear Submarine Belgorod (K-329) To Russian Navy
The Sevmash Shipyard (a part of the United Shipbuilding Company) has delivered the Venture 09852 nuclear submarine Belgorod in a position to carry Poseidon nuclear-powered underwater drones to the Russian Navy, on the shipyard’s services on July 08, 2022. The Okay-329 Belgorod, together with the Standing-6 Oceanic Multipurpose System, was one of many final weapons programs introduced by Russian President Vladimir Putin throughout his annual speech on March 1, 2018. It examined at sea in 1H2022 and was commissioned by the Russian Navy in July 2022. The submarine was delivered to the Russian Navy on 8 July 2022. The Belgorod will reportedly be the primary submarine to make the most of the Standing-6 Oceanic Multipurpose System.
Okay-329 Belgorod is a modified design of the Oscar II class (NATO designation) Russian nuclear submarine.The submarine’s building was initially laid down as a Venture 949A cruise missile submarineon July 24, 1992 on the Severodvinsk Shipyard as pennant quantity 664 of the “Oscar II” class cruise missile submarines, however later was redesigned and partly constructed hull was was reconfigured as a particular operations vessel, in a position to function unmanned underwater automobiles. The vessel was relaid in December 2012. Attributable to persistent underfunding, its building was suspended then resumed at a low charge of progress earlier than the ship was redesigned to change into a singular vessel — the primary Russian fifth-generation submarine.
Within the building course of the unique 154-meter lengthy hull was lengthened to 178 meters (which is nearly 11 meter greater than the Venture 941 SSBNs – the world’s largest submarines ever constructed) with a width of 18,2 meters. In June 2019, US army professional H.I. Sutton printed satellite tv for pc imagery of the Sevmash shipyard, which reveals the Okay-329 “Belgorod” together with Okay-549 “Knyaz Vladimir” of the Borey challenge, with the nuclear submarine Belgorod visibly longer and wider. On November 11, 2015, the Standing-6 Oceanic Multipurpose System challenge was formally revealed to the general public. The preliminary designation of Standing-6 has since been modified to Poseidon (Russian weapon programs designation 2M39 and the NATO reporting title Kanyon has been assigned).
The Poseidon sort remotely operated underwater car has a ten 000 km vary, can dive to a depth of 1 000 meters and is designed to ship nuclear warheads for the destruction of coastal infrastructure as a second nuclear strike possibility. The motherships for the Poseidon underwater drones are deliberate to be the 09852 nuclear submarine “Belgorod” challenge submarines (just like the “Belgorod”) and the 09851 “Khabarovsk” challenge submarines. The submarines can carry as much as six Poseidon automobiles without delay and this view is shared by some army specialists. The Belgorod sort can even function because the mom ship for a single nuclear-powered mini-submarine of the 18511 challenge, in any other case often called Paltus sort (Venture 1851), used for the planting on the seabed of a self-contained mini-nuclear reactor of the ATGU ‘Shelf’ sort.
