International Military - In the midst of war, Russia sent the nuclear submarine Krasnoyarsk for the first test in the White Sea. As is known, Russia is designing the third submarine of the 885M [Yasen-M] class nuclear submarine project.

This ship is known to be designed to enhance the nuclear capabilities of the Russian navy. Currently, the ship is starting naval trials.

Quoted from Bulgarian Military, the submarine was built at the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk with the submarine foundation being laid in 2014.

Quoted from TASS.com, the third submarine of the project 885M [Yasen-M] Krasnoyarsk sailed into the White Sea for the first sea tests. "On June 26, the submarine Krasnoyarsk left the Sevmash shipyard for the first sea tests of the submarine in the White Sea. The suitability of the ship's equipment, seaworthiness and operational characteristics with the designed parameters will be tested at sea.

For information, the Yasen-M class submarine [project 885M] is an upgraded version of the Yasen nuclear attack submarine. This ship is capable of detecting enemy ships at much higher speeds.

In this context, submarines are equipped with new energy sources and acoustic protection systems to reduce the noise footprint and increase invisibility.

The submarine also includes an optimized hull shape, electronic warfare [EW] and improved automation systems, and two silos for the vertical launch system.

The Yassen-M class submarines are equipped with eight vertical launch systems [VLS] for cruise missiles capable of firing Needle surface-to-air missiles. The submarine is also equipped with a torpedo launcher. The Sevmash Shipyard in Severodvinsk in northern Russia has launched the second Project 885 Yasen-class nuclear submarine, the Kazan.

The Yasen-class ships were developed in the 1990s by the St.-based Malakhit Design Bureau of Maritime Machine-Building. Petersburg under the direction of Chief Designer Vladimir Popov. The purpose it is designed for is to destroy enemy submarines and surface ships, naval bases, ports, naval task forces, and other targets.

According to public sources, the Project 885 submarine is about 139 meters long and 13 meters wide and has a draft of 10 meters. The submarine weighs 8,600 tons at the surface and up to 13,800 tons underwater.

It can dive to a maximum depth of 600 meters and develop a speed of 16 knots at surface and up to 31 knots underwater. The submarine has a marine endurance of 100 days and a crew of 85-90 people.
