Russia to start building 2 nuclear Borei super-subs in 2013

RT News

Russia is to start building two new advanced nuclear-powered Borei class submarines before year’s end. Once complete, they will be lurking under the sea with 20 Bulava nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles each.

One of the submarines may be named Aleksandr Suvorov after one of the most decorated generals of the Russian Empire, a source in the defense industry told the media. Its construction is expected to start on July 28, which is Russian Navy Day.

The second vessel is likely to be named after Mikhail Kutuzov, the iconic Russian general of the Napoleonic Wars. Its keel is to be laid down in November.

The vessels are to be built by the shipbuilder Sevmash in Severodvinsk in the north of Russia.

Both submarines are of the Borei class, the most modern strategic nuclear-powered submarines in the Russian Navy. The lead vessel of the class, Yury Dolgoruky, officially entered service on Thursday, with two of his sister-ships currently afloat and undergoing trials.

The two new vessels are distinct from those three, being of an advanced Borei-A version of the same design. They will carry 20 nuclear ICBMs each, as opposed to 16 on the older submarines. They will also have improved maneuverability and better weapon control systems and will generate less noise.

Russia plans to build five Borei-A submarines. The first of them, Knyaz Vladimir, is already in construction.

Earlier this week Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said the five ships may be complete by 2018. This would be ahead of the schedule, since the initial plan was to launch the last of the submarines by 2020.

Apart from Borei class submarines, the Navy wants to purchase seven Yasen class attack nuclear powered submarines before 2020. The design is comparable to the US Seawolf class submarine in terms of purpose and characteristics.

The lead ship of the series, Severodvinsk, was launched in 2010, while another submarine, Kazan, is currently under construction.

  1. We have been experiencing a troll attack directed against From the Trenches. Apparently, there have been a few trolls who have been laying low and acting like they are a part of the movement.
    The attacks have been directed not at me, but at our site, starting with ChewyBees saying we were acting in coalition with the mainstream media in putting up an article about the flag being stomped on.
    And then there was oldranger68 who wrote a comment so profane in his description of homosexual acts that I took it down immediately. Again, it was suggested that From the Trenches was a controlled site. For any of you regulars who would like to see this trashy comment I will email it to you and you can judge for yourself.
    Then this morning we have Erin who asks the question, “Is From the Trenches censoring our posts?” Why would we post something and then censor it?
    This could be just a straight up government attack because we have been instrumental in attacking this gun confiscation bullshit for what it is. Or it could be a John Stadmiller/Alex Jones attack as Alex Jones has been saying all week that anyone who says anything negative about him is working with the new world order. Of course he does not identify those in the new world order as for some reason he can’t say the word, “Z-Z-Zionist”.
    Look for these treasonous trolling parasites to be slandering our site on other patriot sites and let them know that we know exactly who and what they are and that From the Trenches is not going to be stopped.
    We have seen our enemies try every trick in the book to shut us down but if they think a couple of no talent pukes can harm us in slander, they do not understand what this site is and the nature of our resolve.
    Make no mistake; our enemies hate us because we refuse to buy into any kind of divide. In reality this post isn’t even necessary but I felt compelled to vent. LOL

      Hi Henry,

      Right you are!

      Every site that expresses outrage at the treason occurring, refusal to submit to tyranny, and recognizes the US Constitution, especially the 2nd Amendment, is a target of our treasonous gov’t, which is NOT an American gov’t,.. but an, “Enemy Force In Occupation”.

      Although “From The Trenches” has no special immunity against trolls or their propaganda attacks,… you, and the rest of us that support you and this site have an unusually high ability to spot the trolls almost instantly.

      Unfortunately, like any ambush, you don’t know exactly who or what, until they have attacked and exposed their true postion, but like any well trained scout team, we recognize the threat once it has exposed itself, then eliminate it.

      Real Patriots are consistent in their loyality and view points, and therein lies the strategy for detecting all the fakes, the trolls, and the gov’t paid schills who have to earn their treason pay every single day.

      Henry, we will find, identify and route them out each and every day as their rear their ugly little, treasonous heads.

      Don’t worry, this is one of the few sites under the watchful eye of loyal Americans, Patriots, Vets,.. and God.

      God Bless you and this site.

      PS: Leo – Me also. One of the viruses they commonly infect my computer with, is what I call the “double stroke” virus. This is where I push a key, and the letter or number appears 2, 3 or even four times,… or not at all. so I have to watch the screen carefully as I type, or when I look up,… everything I just wrote looks like nothing more then letter-salad!

      Its not just your computer they are attacking,.. but probably everybodies. – JD

  2. @ U S Marine . Yes Same thing happening with me but worse . THEY are trying to download Their Trojan programs in place of my authentic programs . I have caught and stopped most of them, Still had to run a boot scan to get the rest of the viruses. also purchase additional software to remove some tricky Trojan horses . What most people fail to understand is that the National Security Agency has worked with Microsoft over the years to create a backdoor into every Windows operating system from windows 95 to windows 8 ..I am for certain windows 8 has a kill switch that certain U S government agencies can just shut your PC down .

    1. They nailed me earlier this week. i couldn’t type or paste anything in my e-mail section for about half a day, so I couldn’t send Henry any articles. I could, however, still type comments in this section, so it obviously wasn’t a problem with my keyboard or anything. Never happened before, and this computer is still fairly new (8 mos. old).Later that night it was back to normal.


      I hope they get infected with an organic virus – something fatal, like Ebola.

  3. How bout that reset button comrades? Putin doesn’t want to play nice with the other kids. Luckily we have the immaculate messiah to lead us to brilliant military victories.
