Agree that the Yasen is a very powerful vessel, I did hate to be on the opposing end of a salvo of AShM missiles........ just as much as I hate to hear the the cry "torpedo in the water" coming from god knows where from a lurking Virginia.Yeah, on the one hand they are, on the other it's an apples-to-oranges comparison the way that graphic makes it.
All but the first-of-class Yasens are slightly shorter than stated, therefore also a bit lower in displacement, while the Block III and onwards Virginias with the 20m cruise missile VLS section are longer (longer in fact than Yasen!) and displace correspondingly more than 7900t. That's more accurate as it better brings the capabilities in line with each other and narrows the size gap considerably - at least part of the remaining difference also is simply higher reserve buoyancy on the Russian sub due to (partial) double hull construction.
Still, the Pr.885(M) is undeniably a beast - pretty much the Virginia Block III concept executed on the basis of the blue water ops Seawolf hull!
