Description: The Russian Navy Husky program is aimed at delivering a new modular, fifth generation nuclear-powered submarine class capable of encompassing any mission assigned to legacy nuclear submarines. The new submarines modularity will allow a construction time estimated between four to five years. These submarines may feature liquid metal cooled nuclear reactors and highly robotized systems to allow minimal crew and longer patrol periods. Besides, the boats will be able to operate unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) and other unmanned assets such as unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned surface vessels (USVs). The Malakhit Design Bureau is responsible for the new engineering of the new boats while Sevmash will be responsible for their construction. All in, the Russian Navy plan calls for the procurement of 15-20 submarines in three variants by the mid-2030s.
The Russian Navy Husky SSBN is a fifth generation ballistic submarine variant of the Husky project that may be deployed as the replacement for the Delta IV ballistic submarines currently operated by the Russian Navy. Nevertheless Russia may drop the Husky SSBN project depending on the international political mood and stay with eight Borei-class strategic submarines. Armed with 12 to 16 ballistic missiles, the Russian Navy may commission the first boat of this class by 2030 or later.
