The Russian navy’s latest nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Generalissimo Suvorov is on its method to a brief base for the Northern Fleet within the Arctic, the TASS information company reported on Tuesday, citing an unidentified protection supply.

“Lately, the submarine cruiser Generalissimo Suvorov has began shifting from Severodvinsk, the place it was situated on the Sevmash shipyard, to a brief base for the Northern Fleet,” the state company cited its supply as saying.

The strategic submarine was formally included into the Russian navy on the finish of 2022 by President Vladimir Putin.

It’s set to ultimately be a part of and bolster the Russian Pacific Fleet’s power of nuclear-powered submarines and to be moved to the Rybachiy submarine base on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the summertime.

The submarine is the sixth vessel of the Russian Borei-class smaller and stealthier submarines, Russian businesses have reported, a category of submarines that’s changing the nation’s earlier generations of ballistic missiles submarines.

It carries as much as 16 nuclear-tipped Russian Bulava missiles that every is able to carrying multiple nuclear warhead.
