Unbuilt Russian special mission submarines
« on: February 27, 2017, 02:51:47 pm »
In 2010 the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade patented a ‘Multifunctional underwater station (MPS) (Russian: Многофункциональная подводная станция (МПС). Two years later Russian submarine design bureau Lazurite proposed the same design for a range of underwater engineering tasks. Although presented as a civilian platform the design gives us good insight into the Russian ‘deep station’ spy submarines operated by GUGI (Main Directorate of Deep-Sea Research, Military Unit 40056). Critically, the design is quite slow (just 12 knots) but has a massive 1,060 cubic meter integral payload bay (about as large as a three story house) allowing it to place or retrieve large items on the sea floor.

Lazerite listed its roles as all-weather and under-ice underwater search / survey, scientific research, underwater engineering and ‘general diving operations. More info http://www.hisutton.com/Unbuilt_Russian_Spy_Subs.html

 So a possible sea glider type, and a deployment means for those movable underwater reactor powerplants

Huge news, according to TASS (http://tass.com/defense/944338), this submarine is to be built in 2020 (ignore stock submarine image in article)

Added another to Covert Shores (http://www.hisutton.com/Malachite_arctic_submarine.html), this time from Malachite (http://www.malachite-spb.ru/223/). Most interesting feature is that it has an ice breaking bow, which i think is unique for a submarine.
