    Except for Kilo they are delays...and the Russians are gargling with the famous black hole :D
    The futur SSN is mainly more affordable can 't get much big Iassen


    Russian submarine forces expect big reinforcements

    The Russian fleet will celebrate the 111 years of its submarine forces in the modernization of its fleet: the construction of the last of the eight aircraft of the series 955 Boreï began at the end of 2016 and it is envisaged to launch the assembly of the last of the seven sub- Iassen sailors from Project 885.

    These buildings should form the future base of Russia's strategic and versatile underwater fleet.

    On 19 March, Russia will celebrate the Day of the Submariners. The date was not chosen at random: it corresponds to that of the decree of the Minister of the Sea, which in 1906 defined these aircraft as an independent class of warships.

    On the eve of Submarine Day, RIA Novosti reviews the Russian submarine fleet and its prospects for development and modernization.
    The rise of the Iassen and Borei

    The underwater forces of the Russian navy are witnessing an active change in aircraft generation: the construction of many strategic and multi-purpose nuclear-powered submarines has been launched in recent years and the fleet is expecting reinforcements in the near future. Its underwater forces. It is time to appreciate the results of the work done.

    At the end of 2016, the Sevmach plant in Severodvinsk organized the construction ceremony of the last of eight strategic submarine vessels Borei, named Prince Pojarski. Three project 955 units have already entered service. The five remaining submarines, which are under construction as part of the modernized 955A project - which includes the installation of modernized ballistic missiles Boulava-M - are expected to reach them by 2020.

    At the Prince Pojarski construction ceremony, Vice-Admiral Viktor Boursouk, Deputy Commander of the Russian Navy for Armaments, noted that this building would end the series 955A of the Borei. He added that the Navy and the Roubin construction office had already started work on a new modernization of the Boreï project.

    The Borei strategic submarines have a length of 170 meters, a 13.5 meter master-beau and a water displacement of 24,000 tonnes. These buildings are capable of carrying up to 16 R-30 Boulava intercontinental ballistic missiles. The Russian Navy is expected to receive a total of eight Borei submarines by 2020.

    The modernization also concerns the polyvalent nuclear submarines of the Russian fleet. Sevmach will launch in 2017 the construction of a multi-purpose building within the framework of the modernized project 855M Iassen for the Navy. It will be the last of the seven Iassen nuclear submarines designed by the Malakhit construction office in St. Petersburg.

    Perm - the sixth aircraft of the 855 Iassen project - was started in July 2016. At the ceremony, Vice-Admiral Viktor Boursouk stressed that the Iassen series would be ready "by 2023". According to him, the buildings of this modernized project will be transmitted to the Pacific Fleet and the Northern Fleet to "fulfill the same objectives, but with more intensity".
    The Navy currently has only one such submersible, the Severodvinsk, which was transmitted to the fleet in June 2014 and had been tested by spring 2016. According to a source in the naval industry, Sevmach is expected to leave Of its hold the second Iassen, named Kazan, at the end of March at the International Arctic Forum in Arkhanguelsk.

    The strategic nuclear submarines of the 885M project have a water displacement of 13,000 tons, a depth of submersion of 520 meters and a submerged speed of 31 knots. Its endurance is 100 days, while its crew has 64 people. They carry mines, 533mm torpedoes and the cruise missiles Kalibr and Oniks.

    The "Khaska"
    Virtually all the submarines of the 885 Iassen and 955 Borei projects have already been started but the Navy command has more than once announced that it has no desire to stop the construction of submarines of This class - the latter being the guarantors of the strategic stability and security of Russia. It is hoped, therefore, that the construction of the first buildings will soon be launched with new projects which will occupy the spaces liberated by Borei and Iassen in Sevmach.

    Russia is in talks with Saudi Arabia for the sle of T-90MS main battle tanks (MBT), Rostec Corp. Director General Sergei Chemezov has told the Rambler News Service during an interview.

    Interesting as the Saudi Arabian Army is a Abrams user. with standing orders for M1A2S MBT's. the Yemen conflict did damage 20 units that we know of with ATGM of Iranian origins. The M1A2S is more or less identical to the M1A2 save for DU mesh.

    Okay Now I see what happened. and NO, Realistically there is little if any that the T90SM offers not found the Abrams family other than a lighter weight.
    So In August The saudis tried to place an Order for 153 new M1A2S Abrams MBT which was Okayed
    Now things get interesting because There was some kick back in Congress where some members of the senate and the State department tried to block the sale because of Yemen. This peaked when on dec 13 The Obama admin suspended sales ( Ironically ) of precision guided munitions. ( I say Ironic as the whole reason for guided munitions is to reduce collateral by having a higher chance to hit enemy targets.) The Trump Admin moved early this Month to reverse the block, and has made moves to repair US Saudi relations.
    So the Saudis were looking to hedge their bets, fearing that Obama or Trump would close off Sale of the Abrams tanks. Now the Question is are the Saudis still looking at T90 or was the deal more or less dropped.
