    This is quite an old news posted on 18.03.2013. Has anybody on DFI seen it?


    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 on Monday. 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 Rubin’s 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 Defence 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.

    5th Gen Subs will come into serial production from 2030 onwards according to RuN chief.

    Essentially what they are doing is R&D work for 5th gen program and some where around 2025 they would build a prototype of this type ....it take around 15-20 years to design & build a sub of new generation according to Rubin

    What they are aiming for lot of Unification and Modularity between SSBN and SSN/SSGN platform like building common hull , reactor , electronics etc ......right now SSBN program is handled by Rubin and so also conventional subs or Amur/Lada/Kilo type while SSN/SSGN Yasen/Akula is designed by Malachite.

    Is there Magneto Hydro drive in subs like in the film Red October?
