On December 21, Sevmash, a United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) division, delivered two new nuclear-powered submarines, Knyaz Oleg and Novosibirsk, to the Russian Navy. The Yasen-M and Borei-A class submarines are the first in the Yasen-M and Borei-A Class.


Knyaz Oleg, a Project 955-A Borei-A class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, was laid down in July 2014 and is scheduled to launch in July 2020. Rubin Central Design Bureau designed the submarine. In January of this year, the company was awarded a contract to build two more Borei-A ballistic missile submarines for the Russian Navy.
