Aleksandr Nevskiy, the second submarine of the Project 955 class, was expected to be moved out of the covered dock today. The ceremony, however, was postponed, reportedly because of the harsh weather conditions.
The construction of the submarine began in March 2004. Aleksandr Nevskiy will join the lead ship of the Project 955 class, Yuri Dolgorukiy, in waiting for the outcome of the Bulava flight test program.
UPDATE 12/02/10: The submarine was moved to the floating dock on December 2, 2010.
