Russia to Deploy Submarine Armed With Nuclear Drone in Pacific

The Belgorod nuclear submarine will serve in the Russian Navy’s Pacific Fleet after passing a series of tests, Russian state news agency TASS has reported.

The soon-to-be-commissioned vessel, designed to carry Poseidon underwater nuclear drones, has the capability to carry out missions in any part of the world, according to the outlet.

TASS had earlier reported that trials on the submarine would take place beginning in May 2021. However, this has not been officially confirmed.

The Sevmash shipyard began constructing the Belgorod in December 2012, and it was scheduled to be commissioned in September 2020 after passing sea trials in June, according to TASS. The delay was reportedly due to the pandemic.
