2.5 Classification of nuclear powered naval vessels

An overview of all nuclear powered submarines and surface ships in the Russian Navy is given in the following pages. Both the Russian project number and when possible, the classification name, are given, as well as the NATO classification of each respective class of submarines. Even though this report does not address conditions at the Russian Pacific Fleet, its submarines are included in the overview. This is because most of the Pacific Fleet's nuclear submarines are also expected to be dismantled in Severodvinsk. The K-number indicates the military registration number of the vessel within the Navy. A number of the newer submarines also have names. Unless stated otherwise, information on reactor power (thermal), technical data, nuclear weapons, K-numbers and dates of construction are taken from the book Military Vessels in the Soviet Union and Russia 1945-1995. [178] The number of submarines as well as some technical information about the various classes of submarines is taken from Jane's Fighting Ships 1995-96. Other pieces of information on the various submarines is based on the material presented in the other chapters of this report.
