According to unconfirmed reports, one nuclear submarine of the Borey project costs 23 billion rubles for the Russian budget, while a submarine of the Yasen project costs more than 200 billion. Submarines compared military observer TASS Dmitry Litovkin.
“No wonder that Project 885 boats are among the most secret in the Russian Navy,” the author writes.
The observer recalled that the submarines of project 955 “Borey” have a new “technical stuffing” of no more than 40 percent, while “for boats of the 885th project, all systems, components and mechanisms are completely new, never used anywhere before.” In particular, the submarines of the Yasen project use a mixed construction system and a hull made of high-strength low-magnetic steel.
The author is confident that obtaining a digital model of a nuclear submarine will reduce the time for designing and manufacturing submarines.
