Pictures Of The New Russian Boomer

The Russians launched their new SSBN last week, and apparently have two more in various stages of construction. It appears to be about the same size as an Ohio-class boat -- 580 ft. long, 42' beam. The Russians are claiming that the Yuri Dolgoruky will be ready for sea trials in October of this year; based on the delays they've seen over the last 11 years of construction, I doubt they'll be able to reach that goal -- they're reporting the sub is only 82% complete now.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the new Russian sub that can hold us over until we start getting some periscope shots sometime in the 2010s.

Apart from the fact that she's fitted to sit on the bottom, I'm not interested in the visual, just the audio signature.

So much for waiting till the 2010's.
They launched her last week, as the Brit's have had to go out to keep an eye on her!!!!!!!

It is a great piece of machinery, Russians have an incredible technology.

It can't succeed in fact, that is what I think.

This can't really work, I believe like this.
