1:350 SSBN "BOREY" NUC.SUBMARINE "Vladimir Monomakh"

The Borey-class (Russian: Борей; transliterated as Borey, NATO Reporting Name: Dolgorukiy class, after the name of the lead vessel, Yury Dolgorukiy) is the new class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine produced by Russia and operated by the Russian Navy, while the Severodvinsk-class submarine is the new Russian attack submarine. The class is intended to replace the Delta III, Delta IV and Typhoon classes now in Russian Navy service. The class is named after Boreas, the North wind.

Despite being a replacement for many types of submarines, the Borey-class submarines are much smaller than those of the Typhoon class in both volume and crew (107 people as opposed to 160 for the Typhoons). The goal of this downsizing is to reduce the cost to build and maintain the submarines.

Vladimir Monomakh (Russian: АПЛ Владимир Мономах) is a Russian ballistic missile submarine of the fourth generation Borei-class (Project 955) that became operational in 2015.[2] It is named after Vladimir Monomakh (1053–1125), the Grand Duke of Kievan Rus'.[3]

The project was developed by the Rubin Design Bureau, and the chief designer was Sergey Kovalev. The keel was laid down on 19 March 2006 at the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk. The hull of the Akula-class submarine K-480 Ak Bars was used in the construction of Vladimir Monomakh. The submarine will be armed with 16 of the newest submarine-launched ballistic missile developed in Russia, the Bulava (NATO designation SS-N-32). Vladimir Monomakh and its sister ships will replace the Delta III and IV classes in the Russian Navy. The submarine was launched on 30 December 2012 and had begun moored tests in January 2013.

The submarine finished its first sea trials on 8 October 2013 when returning from a 25-day trial at sea.[5] On 9 September 2014, a Bulava missile was launched from the submarine.

Vladimir Monomakh entered service on 19 December 2014. It has arrived at its permanent base in the Pacific Fleet on 26 September 2016.
