Work is in progress on the newest fifth-generation nuclear-powered and diesel submarines at Russia's Rubin Central Design Bureau, Rubin head Igor Vilnit said.

The Russian Navy currently relies on third-generation submarines with fourth-generation subs of the Yury Dolgoruky (Project 955 Borey) and St. Petersburg (Project 677 Lada) class just beginning to be adopted for service.

In addition to Rubin, Defense Ministry research centers and the Navy Institute, as well as Rubins partners and contractors, are currently working to develop a basic design of the fifth-generation submarine.

The new submarine will have a service life of about 50 years, he said.

The fifth generation will be distinguished by its lowered noise, automated control systems, reactor safety, and long-range weapons.

The Defense Ministry previously said Russia is planning to develop its fifth-generation submarine by 2020 under a 2011-2020 arms procurement program, to be armed with both ballistic and cruise missiles.

Russia also plans to build eight fourth-generation strategic nuclear subs by 2020 and arm them with Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
