 Russias first North Wind God a nuclear submarine started underwater test and delayed delivery for many times


The new type of strategic missile nuclear submarine Prince Vladimir, which was delivered to the Northern Fleet for factory acceptance, has begun underwater tests in the white sea, the Russian Navys Northern Fleet said in a message

The Northern Fleet said the submarine had passed major test programs, including underwater missile launches, by the end of 2019. The upgraded submarine is different from the 955 nuclear submarine in hull shape and control system. It is equipped with Brava ICBM system and modern shipborne torpedo.

Vladimir Dagong nuclear submarine was supposed to be delivered to the Russian Navy by the end of December 2019, but the delivery time was delayed due to technical reasons. On January 12 this year, Russian media reported that the first 955A (the God of the North wind-a) strategic nuclear submarine, Vladimir Dagong, will be delivered to the Russian Navy at the end of January, and the handover document will be signed in the near future.

But by April, the submarine was not delivered as scheduled. April 3 - Alexei rakhmanov, President of Russia United shipbuilding group, told satellite news agency that the first new type of God of the North wind-a (955A) nuclear submarine Vladimir Dagong is planned to be delivered to the Russian navy in April.

In addition, four God of the North wind-a submarines have been built and are in different stages.

Russia plans to build seven improved 955A submarines for its navy. The difference of tactical and technical performance between the 955 north wind god and 955A north wind God-a class submarines has not been officially announced.
