Pr.09852 KC-139 "Belgorod"

Research nuclear submarine project 09 852 "Belgorod" will be the largest submarine in the Russian Navy. Izvestia claimed 21 apri 2017 that for its size and tonnage it will overtake entered in the Guinness Book of heavy nuclear missile cruiser of Project 941 of the "Typhoon". Project 09852 is designed to perform scientific research missions. It will be the carrier of unmanned submersibles and submersibles, as well as a special scientific equipment. It will study the bottom of the Russian Arctic shelf, look at the great depth of minerals, as well as to lay submarine communication.

Severodvinsk Machine-Building Enterprise. It carried out a redesign of the central part. Instead of a new missile compartment is embedded almost the size of 30 meters. It will have special equipment installed lock chambers to move seafarers in deep-sea vehicles, as well as divers exit. As a result, the size of "Antey" has increased from the original 154 meters to 184 meters. It is eleven meters longer than the largest nuclear submarine "Typhoon".

Research nuclear submarine / nuclear submarine for special purposes (PLASN) boat carrier is developed on the basis of SSGN pr.949A CDB ME "Rubin" commissioned by the Russian Navy. Submarine rescue vehicle deep manned and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles designed for diverse scientific research in remote ocean areas, participate in search and rescue operations. Just as the PLA will provide installation of various subsea equipment and its inspection, participate in tests of new samples of research equipment to monitor underwater highways.

State Contract #748 / 31 / 664PM-2009 / 27.9 of 19.05.2009 on the implementation of the ROC "refitted" signed between CDB ME "Rubin" and the Defense Ministry of Russia (ist. - CDB ME "Rubin", Annual Report 2012). For the first time information on the plans for the conversion of the PLA "Belgorod" (order #664 / 91664) into the boat carrier submersibles published in 2010.

In February 2012, the Commander in Chief of the Russian Navy Vladimir Vysotsky announced plans to use boats as a special purpose unfinished SSGN "Belgorod". April 25, 2012 between the PO "Sevmash" and CDB ME "Rubin" signed the Agreement # 89/08118 for the development of the project design documentation Order 09852 in the amount of inventory backlog of design documentation zav.#664 pr.949A. #66-12 state contract to perform OCR on PLASN pr.09852 head. Number 664 of 11.09.2012 signed between the Ministry of Defense of Russia and JSC "CDB ME" Rubin ". Agreement 4967/8312/49367/8312 147-12 for performance midrange OCD on "building PLASN" code "SMP-Mo", project 09852, Head. ## 664 was signed between JSC "CDB ME" Rubin "and JSC" Sevmash "of 11.09.2012.

December 20, 2012 in the workshop #55 by "Sevmash" (Severodvinsk) in pr.09852 was repledge SSGN K-139 "Belgorod" pr.949AM (factory #664). As of mid-2015 work on the conversion of the PLA and the willingness to continue the boat not previously forecasted 2016-2017.

There are several variants of the hypothetical use of a new boat-storage:

  1. The official version - Boat carrier will carry one or more manned deep-sea rescue devices, and several autonomous unmanned vehicles. The latter are likely to be located on the site of rocket launchers SSGN pr.949A. Belgorod" will be the carrier of the autonomous deep-sea station AS-31 "Losharik". It will be transported and installed on the seabed autonomous nuclear-powered modules for charging unmanned underwater vehicles. The submarine will provide global deployment of underwater situation monitoring system, which the military build at the bottom of the Arctic seas.
  2. Hypothetical version - Boat carrier will carry the nuclear deep-station type pr.10831 or type alleged pr.18510M. Perhaps, in this embodiment, the housing PLASN vzerka will be installed in a niche that will be placed means docking and servicing worn AGS.
  3. PLA is a carrier of the complex dual-use "Magma".

As of 2012 Russia had three unfinished Oscar-class submarines laid down in the period 1992-1994. It is possible that construction of one of these has been resumed at Sevmash. Commander of the Russian Navy Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky in February 2012 told RIA Novosti about plans to reconstruct the “Belgorod" for a ‘series of special missions’. The new submarine, dubbed Project 09852, is designed by the construction bureau Rubin and is based on the project 949A Antey-class (NATO reporting name Oscar) attack submarine.

On December 20, 2012 at Sevmash, the 24th Division held a ceremony and laying of a research submarine 09852 project. The event was attended by Navy Commander-in-chief Admiral Vladimir Chirkov, President of the United shipbuilding Corporation A.A. Dyachkov, Sevmash Director M.A. Bydnichenko, commanders of military units A.V. Burilichev and M.V. Zaborski, as well as General Director of CDB MT "Rubin" I.V. Vil'nit and head of the Defense Ministry's military mission of 1059 D.N. Maksurov.

The plant shop in the solemn atmosphere was the start of construction of a new ship. The submarine will be created for the implementation of complex tasks: carrying out diversified research in remote ocean areas, participate in search and rescue operations. In addition, the NPS must ensure installation of subsea equipment and inspection tools, testing new models of research equipment, monitoring submarine thoroughfares. Submarine becomes the bearer of the deep-sea rescue and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles. Nuclear marine propulsion designed by CDB MT "Rubin" (St. Petersburg) on the basis of the project 949A.

The honorary right at the event was presented to the Navy and the Director-General of the Supreme Sevmash. Viktor Viktorovich noted the immense contribution of the enterprise in the development of the country's nuclear fleet and wished troops further success in creating a reliable nuclear shield Russia. Mikhail Anatolyevich, in turn, stressed that the company will make every effort to serve the boat for many years, was reliable and ensure the execution of the tasks assigned to it by the Ministry of defence.

"This submarine will be created for the implementation of complex tasks: carrying out diversified research in remote ocean areas, participate in search and rescue operations", "Interfax" was told in the press service of "Sevmash".

As to "unconfirmed" project data will be rebuilt 09852 submarine K-329 Belgorod» head no. 664 project 949a, whose construction began in the year 1992 and was repeatedly delayed. Even in 2011 there was evidence that the submarine will be completed under a special project, as the carrier ship for "Losharik" special nuclear-powered submarines.

According to the official version of the boat carrier will carry one or several inhabited deep-saving apparatus and several unmanned autonomous vehicles. Perhaps the latter will be located on the site of rocket launchers Project 949A. The second is hypothetical version — will be deep submarine nuclear plant type or types of project 10831 18510M proposed project. Perhaps, in this embodiment, housing door will be installed in a niche that will be installed facilities and docking worn AGS.

Underwater Cable Vessel

In the 1990s by order of the Ministry of communications of the Russian Federation of CDB Mt "Rubin" was carried out research work on verifying the possibility of creating an underwater cable vessel, capable of lining and repair telecommunications lines under pakovymi ice in the Arctic, as well as for the development of appropriate technologies.

As a result of the implementation of the various options that ship designs as the basis for its establishment was suggested to use the output from the missile submarine Cruiser project 667BDR, 941 and 949a. This approach allows to rationally use the available equipment of these ships and count on cost recovery.

For specialists of CDB MT "Rubin" development options for underwater cable was new, extremely interesting and unusual work. Specialists of CDB Mt "Rubin", took part in these works, displayed their best engineering quality and technical erudition. As a result, the existing cabling technology used on the surface of cable ships, has been adapted for underwater laying of cable. According to the results of work by experts of CDB Mt "Rubin" was obtained several patents.
