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.
