The construction will start in 2023 and the first sub will be delivered by the end of 2027.
The Husky will feature a two-hull design traditional for the Russian Navy and displace 12,000 tonnes. The submarine will be furnished with the most advanced combat information and control system, a sonar and a system of integration into the unified information space of the Russian Armed Forces.
The is Husky will be a cheaper alternative to the top-end Yasen Class. If the Yasen can be likened to the US Navy’s Seawolf Class, then the Husky will be the Virginia Class.
Russia is currently building a series of Project 885 Yasen-class fourth-generation multipurpose submarines. Seven Yasen submarines are planned by 2023. Only one Yasen sub, the K-560 Severodvinsk, has been commissioned. A second was launched in 2017.
The Husky class has an x-shaped rudder arrangement instead of the Alfa’s cross-shaped arrangement and deletes the spherical sonar array and towed arrays, substituting them with chin-mounted and flank arrays.
