Lazurit Design Bureau (Nizhniy Novgorod) has tested new lifesaving capsule for submarines of 3rd and further generations, reports Interfax. The capsule is designed for deep-sea tests of submarines and will be used to save trial crews in case of accident. Standard crew saving capsules will be mounted as well.

Standard capsules can accommodate only submariners, but sea trials are normally attended by shipyard's experts, designers, and military inspectors. According to a source at Zvezdochka shipyard, the capsule was planted on board a submarine, and has already returned to Zvezdochka for outfitting and completion.

Now the yard equips the capsule with ventilation system, additional electrical equipment, and decompression systems. The project is implemented under state defense order, although its cost has not been specified so far. Dates of commission are not reported either.
