Strategic missile submarine destination "Yury Dolgoruky"
The structure of the Navy Russia has entered a strategic missile submarine destination "Yury Dolgoruky" Project 955 "Borey". Nuclear submarines of this project will be the main naval component of the nuclear forces of Russia in XXI century.
Class submarines "Northwind" developed at the Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering "Rubin", founded in 1901. The length of boats in this class - 170 m, water displacement - 24,000 tons submerged speed - to 29 knots, depth - 400 m, autonomy - 90 days, the crew - 107 people.The boat is on board torpedoes and cruise missiles.
But the main weapon of the cruiser are 16 launchers (20 boats in the project 955A) capable of firing ballistic missiles R-30 "Bulava". The missile "Bulava" is able to deliver ten warheads total mass 1150 kg at a distance of 9300 km. The ability to maneuver the missile in the last third of its trajectory makes the task of interception in modern conditions is almost impossible. In 2012, the Department of Defense announced plans to build 10 boat class "Northwind" 2020.
