Russia’s Severodvinsk Successfully Completes Combat Trials
Russia’s nuclear submarine Severodvinsk has finished combat trials in the White Sea and headed to its permanent base in Murmansk Region. This came in a statement by a spokesman for the Western Military District.
According to the official information, missile firing exercises were an important part of the trials. The ship crew also carried out a number of other combat tasks, which proved the submarine and its weapons highly effective.
It should be noted that the Severodvinsk nuclear submarine (Project 885) was laid down in 1993 and was set afloat on June 15, 2010. The flag-raising ceremony was held in June 2014 marking its introduction into the Russian Navy. The Yasen-class nuclear submarines represent the fourth generation of ships with a reduced level of acoustic field. They are designed to destroy ground, surface and underwater objects and are armed with supersonic cruise missiles and versatile self-guided torpedoes.
