BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The conceptual design of the fifth generation Husky submarine has been completed, while the tactical and technical characteristics are being developed, said the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Alexei Rakhmanov.

“We have already completed the conceptual design of the perspective submarine of the fifth generation ‘Husky’, as well as the definition of its appearance. Several variants have been proposed, now we have to choose the optimal one from them,” he said in an interview with the Izvestia newspaper.

“Now the development of the tactical and technical characteristics of the new boat is underway. Further information about the Husky is still a military secret,” Rakhmanov added.

As previously reported, there is little open information about multi-purpose nuclear submarines of the fifth generation of the Husky project.

It is known that this submarine will carry a promising missile system with the supersonic cruise missiles “Zircon”, first mentioned in the media in February 2011.

The presumable designation of the RK is 3K-22, and the missile itself is 3M22.

As the deputy commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy for armament Viktor Bursuk stated earlier, the construction of the Haski submarine will be laid in the state armament program for 2018-2025.
