State acceptance trials of Project 955 Borei nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Alexander Nevsky will be held in Dec 2012, reports RIA Novosti referring to press service of Sevmash shipyard.

According to the shipyard's press service, the submarine recently took the sea for trials. It was initially planned to put the sub into service in 2013. Later on, the then-minister of defense Anatoly Serdiukov said Alexander Nevsky would join Pacific Fleet in 2014.
