October 31, 2019 (Google Translation) – Strategic missile submarine cruiser (SSBN) Vladimir Monmakh of the Borey-A project successfully performed test torpedo firing at the Northern Fleet combat training grounds in the White Sea.
Shooting was carried out on the target vessel from an underwater position. Its implementation was provided by the forces of the White Sea naval base.
Earlier, on October 29, the crew of the Prince Vladimir RPKSN performed the first test launch of the Bulava, an intercontinental ballistic missile from the White Sea, at the Kura training ground in Kamchatka.
Vladimir Monmakh was built according to the improved project “Borey-A” and belongs to the fourth generation of submarine nuclear submarines created for the Russian Navy. From the first three Boreevs – the underwater cruisers Yuri Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh – Prince Vladimir is less noisy, with more advanced maneuvering and retention systems at depth, as well as weapon control.
