A group of five modernized nuclear missile submarines of Project 949AM Antei will be created in the Russian Pacific Fleet five years from now, a source in the Pacific Fleet Staff told Interfax-AVN on Thursday.

“A group of missile submarines of Project Antei will be created in the Pacific Fleet by 2020. Modernization of the subs at the Zvezda Far Eastern plant will be over by then,” he said.

The submarines K-150 Tomsk, K-132 Irkutsk and K-442 Chelyabinsk will be added alongside operating subs K-186 Omsk and K-456 Tver within five years, the source said.

“Modernization of the Antei subs will extend their service life by 15-20 years,” the fleet representative said.
