Submarine news, analysis and projects
« on: November 28, 2017, 11:24:05 pm »
Ahoi shipwrecks,

Starting a general thread on submarine news, analysis and projects which fall outside the scope of the Secret Projects Naval section, even if they do have an air of secrecy and mystery to them.

In recent news Russia launched the fourth Borei class SSBN. This is the first Project 0955A borei-II (or borei-A). Count (or prince) Vladimir.

My analysis. http://www.hisutton.com/Borei-A.html Attached is a schematic I've quickly done. We haven't seen the front end of the boat yet but previous borei reused Akula attack subs bow sections, and although the new boat will be a fresh build and updated, it cannot be too different.

Overall the new boat seems more westernized in design terms,
