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 Husky SSN, also known as Underwater Interceptor, is expected to be manned by a crew of 64-man with the capacity to engage surface ships and submarines. The boat will be fast and silent with the ability to detect other submarines and surface ships at longer ranges while being extremely maneuverable. Their primary mission will be to protect the Russian Navy strategic submarines against hostile attack submarines. The first boat of this class is expected to be commissioned by the Russian Navy by 2025.
