November 21, 2019 (Google Translation) – The latest strategic missile submarine prince Prince Vladimir of the Borey-A project completed the state test cycle at the Northern Fleet’s combat training ground in the White Sea and arrived in Severodvinsk.

Within its framework, the crew successfully conducted test torpedo firing at an underwater target in the White Sea.

Earlier, the crew of the SSBN “Prince Vladimir” performed the first test launch of the Bulava, an intercontinental ballistic missile from the White Sea, at the Kura test site in Kamchatka, and then test torpedo firing at surface targets.

The execution of test firing of the SSBN “Prince Vladimir” was provided by the forces of the White Sea naval base of the Northern Fleet.

Strategic missile submarine cruiser Prince Vladimir was built according to the improved Borey-A project and belongs to the 4th generation of submarine nuclear submarines designed for the Russian Navy. From the first three Boreevs – the underwater cruisers Yuri Dolgoruky, Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh – the Prince Vladimir is less noisy, with more advanced maneuvering and retention systems at depth, as well as weapon control.
