Largest Submarines in the World to be Destroyed
Dmitry Donskoy submarine

The largest submarines in the world Dmitry Donskoy, Archangelsk and Severstal are to be written off and cut into metal. The further use of them is impossible because of restrictions, placed by START (for Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty). The strategic attack submarines, classified as Shark in Russia and Typhoon by NATO, will be destroyed by 2014.

The North Machine building Enterprise, the plant where the submarines were built, considers the submarines could be remade into refrigerated gas tanker or into all season carriers, which could bring oil and gas to arctic ports.

To re-equip such large submarines are too expensive, says Ministry of Defense. At that after introducing a new type of submarines Borei, using Sharks is not reasonable. The Borei class is built for carrying intercontinental missiles Bulava. The submarine crew is one and a half times less, the maintenance expenses is much lower. At that Borei is a modern submarine, which can be hardly discovered in water, reports The Izvestiya.

The giant submarines will be destroyed according to the Start III, signed by the Presidents of Russia and the U.S. in spring 2010.
