The eighth Borei-class nuclear-powered submarine will be laid down at the Sevmash shipyard in Russia’s northern town of Severodvinsk on December 23, the submarine will be named Knyaz (Prince) Pozharsky, a source in the defense industry told.

The Knyaz Pozharsky submarine will be the last of the eight Borei-class submarines and the fifth of the advanced Borei-A-class ones.

Three submarines built under this project have already been turned over to the navy. Each submarine carries 16 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The Knyaz Vladimir submarine, laid down in 2012, is being constructed under the advanced project. Project 09552 Borei-A subs are characterized by better stealth capabilities, more advanced electronic equipment and more comfortable conditions for the crew.

In 2014, two submarines, Knyaz Oleg and Generalissimo Suvorov were laid down while in 2015 the construction of the Emperor Alexander III nuclear submarine began.
