Latest Russian submarine equipped with warheads missiles to be sent to Pacific soon

The Russian Navy's newest nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine will move to a permanent base in the Kamchatka Peninsula in August, Russia's Tass news agency reported on Wednesday. The development is part of Moscow's efforts to increase its military presence in the Pacific.

The submarine "Generalissimo Suvorov", which entered service in late 2022, is capable of carrying 16 Russian Bulava missiles with nuclear warheads.


"The submarine will undergo an internal transfer from the Northern Fleet (in the Arctic) to the Pacific Fleet in August," state agency Tass said, citing sources close to the military.

Russia is working to strengthen its defenses in its vast eastern region bordering Asia and the Pacific, where it accuses the United States of increasing its presence, raising security concerns in Japan and across the region.

According to Russian news agencies, this submarine is the sixth submarine of the "Borai" class of small and stealthy submarines that will replace ballistic missile submarines.
