About the nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine

Generalissimus Suvorov is a Russian 4th generation strategic nuclear submarine (cruiser). It is the sixth ship of Project 955A (09552) Borey-A and the third one under construction under the modernized Project 955A (09552) Borey-A.

The submarine was named in honor of the great Russian commander Alexander Vasilievich Suvorov, who held the titles of Generalissimo of All-Russia, Count Rymniksky, and Prince of Italy.

The grounding of the missile carrier took place on December 26, 2014. The main hull of the ship was formed by the end of 2015. According to media reports, the transfer of the submarine to the fleet was originally planned for 2022.

On December 25, 2021, she was taken out of the slipway and launched on January 11, 2022, preparing for mooring tests. Delivery to the Pacific Fleet is scheduled for July 2023.

The submarine is approximately 170 meters (560 ft) long, 13 meters (43 ft) in diameter, and has a maximum submerged speed of at least 46 kilometers per hour (25 knots).

Generalissimus Suvorov is able to carry 20 Bulava SLBM and is armed with 16 SLBMs with 6-10 nuclear warheads atop each, just like the Borei submarines.
