For the first time, the Ministry of Defense published a video showing how three Russian submarines surface in the Arctic, breaking through the ice.
The Russian Defense Ministry published a video of the ascent of three nuclear submarines breaking through the ice. The operation became part of the Umka-21 expedition. According to the commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, Nikolai Yevmenov, the boats surfaced in a limited area with a radius of 300 meters.
It is also noted that for the first time in the history of the Russian fleet, it was possible to carry out practical torpedo firing of a nuclear submarine from under the ice, followed by equipping a hole at the torpedo's ascent point and lifting it to the surface.
The video shows, presumably, the submarines of Project 667BDRM and 955. The first is a strategic missile carrier of the third generation, while the second is a strategic nuclear submarine of the fourth - last - generation. Now these submarines are the basis of the naval component of the Russian nuclear triad.
Recently, we recall, it became known that Russia is launching the production of an innovative coating for submarines of the Borey-A project. Its production should start in May this year.
