The Russian Ministry of Defense and the Sevmash company have signed a contract for the construction of two strategic nuclear submarines (NPS) of the Borey-A project. The general director of the enterprise Mikhail Budnichenko announced this to journalists on Tuesday, January 12.

“In July, a contract was signed with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the construction of two more serial nuclear-powered submarine cruisers of the Borey-A project, which will be named Dmitry Donskoy and Prince Potemkin,” Budnichenko said in an interview with the Zavod corporate publication.

The general director of the enterprise specified that the submarine “Knyaz Oleg”, taken out of the boathouse last summer, is now being completed; four more of her sister-ships are in various stages of readiness.

Strategic nuclear submarines of the Borey-A project belong to the fourth generation of nuclear submarines – carriers of intercontinental ballistic missiles. Borei-A are armed with Bulava missiles. They differ from the first series of ships of this project (“Yuri Dolgoruky”, “Alexander Nevsky”, “Vladimir Monomakh”) in less noise and more advanced systems of maneuvering and weapon control.
