Nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) Alexander Nevsky has successfully passed another round of shipyard's sea trials in the White Sea. During that "sea exam" all onboard systems were tested on different modes. All tasks were accomplished in full.

"Contracting company, trial team and the sub's crew have worked excellently", said Alexander Reznikov who is the engineer in charge of the submarine delivery. The shipyard's trial team headed by him and the crew led by Capt 1 Rank Vasily Tankovid have become the united collective which teamwork is aimed at timely execution of all assigned tasks.

According to Marat Abizhanov, military production director at Sevmash shipyard, previous sea trial rounds showed excellent propulsive performance and maneuverability of the sub. Upon termination of shipyard's sea trials, SSBN Alexander Nevsky will start the state acceptance ones.

Built under Project 955, Alexander Nevsky is the first batch-produced Borei-class ballistic missile submarine. Hull length is 170 meters; beam is 13.5 meters; test depth is 450 meters; submerged speed is 29 knots. Lead submarine of the series is SSBN Yury Dolgoruky. After SSBN Alexander Nevsky, two other subs were laid down at Sevmash shipyard, namely Vladimir Monomakh and Knyaz Vladimir.

Series of the fourth-generation nuclear submarines armed with Bulava ballistic missiles is to become the core of Russia's maritime nuclear strategic force for the next few decades.
