“On June 26, the Krasnoyarsk submarine left the Sevmash Shipyard for the first shipbuilders sea trials in the White Sea. Its onboard equipment and compliance of its seaworthiness and performance characteristics with the designed parameters will be tested at sea,”
After that, as the source specified, the Krasnoyarsk submarine will undergo state tests where all of its weapons will be checked in practice.
The press office of the Sevmash Shipyard refused to comment for TASS.
In February 2022, a source told TASS that the submarine would start its shipbuilders sea trials in early June.
The Krasnoyarsk is the second serial-produced and third-built Project 885M (Yasen-M) submarine. It was laid down in 2014 and launched on July 30, 2021.
The submarine was developed by the St. Petersburg-based Malakhit Design Bureau. Currently, six Project 885M submarines are at various stages of their construction at the Sevmash Shipyard. The Project 885M lead nuclear-powered submarine Kazan was delivered to the Russian Navy on May 7, 2021. Project 885/885M submarines are armed with Kalibr-PL (SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Onyx (SS-N-26 Strobile) cruise missiles as their basic strike weapons.
