Russian submarine "Prince Vladimir" struck the whole world!

Launched the other day, the submarine "Prince Vladimir" class "Superborey" struck observers in different countries of the world. And this is not surprising: an atomic underwater bomber can carry 20 nuclear warheads, sink to a depth of 400 meters and hit entire cities 10 thousand kilometers away.

The new class of Russian submarines is able to destroy the city, located at a distance of 9300 kilometers from the launch site. The submarine "Prince Vladimir", the first submarine of this class, can carry up to 20 nuclear warheads and, hiding from enemy observers, go to a depth of 400 meters, becoming inaccessible to radar. By 2025, the Russian fleet should be built 8 boats of a similar class "Borey", including two boats of the class "Superborey", the same as the "Prince Vladimir". In total, they will be able to carry from 96 to 200 warheads, each of which will be 10 times more powerful than a bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

Ceremony of launching the boat took place on November 17, 2017. The construction of the vessel began in July 2012. It is expected that in 2018 the submarine will officially become part of the Russian fleet, becoming the most modern submarine-based nuclear submarine in the Russian Navy as a nuclear deterrent.

Compared with ordinary boats of the class "Borey", "Prince Vladimir", like other boats of the class "Superbore", has four additional launch shafts. In addition, the boat became more maneuverable and better managed, and a number of technical improvements were made.
The armament of the Borey-type boats will be equipped with intercontinental ballistic missiles "Bulava RSM-56".
Although competing Ohio-class submarines in service with the American fleet are capable of carrying 24 ballistic missiles, their nuclear strike range is only 7,800 kilometers. Their depth is also less. As the commander of the Russian Navy, Admiral Vladimir Korolev, said, the construction of strategic nuclear submarines of the Borey class is aimed at maintaining the technical and combat level of the Russian submarines of the Pacific and Northern fleets.

Recently, news about the modernization of the submarine fleet comes not only from Russia. So, the Chinese state-owned military-technical company "China Shipbuilding Production Corporation" (CSIC) announced the launch of the first magnetohydrodynamic submarine, whose properties make it much more secretive than traditional submarines. Due to the absence of noise, she will be able to approach the enemy unnoticed.

If the new Chinese magnetohydrodynamic submarine is successful, it can closely bring China closer to naval parity with the armies of the United States and western countries, which the Chinese have been seeking for many years. Over the creation of such a ship engine engineers around the world have been working for a long time. Its use can significantly reduce the noise of a submarine. And now, according to reports, the Chinese have succeeded. According to the state media of China, the boat was launched for testing on October 18 and managed to reach the target speed.
Now the Russian submarine "Prince Vladimir" will have to officially adopt. It will join the fleet in 2018.

Meanwhile, the Chinese are once again striving to get ahead in the technical indicators of naval armaments. For example, it was recently announced that China is trying to create a "mixed-type arsenal boat" that will be capable of releasing missiles from both underwater and surface situations. And the British earlier this year launched the Brave submarine strategic nuclear missile carrier. Thus, the competition of submarine fleets of the world is in full swing. And Russia made a serious bid to win, showing its nuclear bomber, which has already been dubbed "the most deadly in the world."
