Behold the Severodvinsk—the pride of the Russian Navy, the first of the post-Soviet era Yasen-class submarines. It entered service at the end of December 2013 and it will replace the old Akula-class and Alfa-class subs. But unlike those warships, and thanks to a new cruise missile, the Severodvinsk has strategic and tactical nuclear weapon capabilities.
Have we yet seen a better litho or photo of Severodvinsk's crest area anywhere? Based upon the Federation's re-adoption of Soviet sub ID policy, Russia has attained its stated objective of making it more complicated for possible enemies to identify the submarines sailing in surface position.
Submarines are always silent and strange.
