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 SSGN is an aircraft carrier killer variant of the fifth generation nuclear-powered submarine developed under the Husky project. Besides, the Husky SSGN cruise missile submarine will be able to engage any surface vessel and land targets utilizing a variety of cruise missiles such as hypersonic Zircom, supersonic Onyx and subsonic Kalibr-PL missiles. These boats will be able to carry up to 32 cruise missiles utilizing eight vertical launch system (VLS) payload modules. Besides, these submarines will be able to deliver special operations forces on enemy shores along their equipment. The design is expected to be completed within 2018 and the construction of the first boat is expected to begin in 2023 or 2024 with the commissioning expected as soon as 2028.
