Aleksandr Nevskiy ballistic missile submarine of the Project 955 class has completed the sea trials part of the state acceptance trials.

The submarine first went to sea in October 2011. At some point the Russian Navy expected that the submarine will be accepted for service in 2012, but that apparently did not happen. One of the reasons for the delay is probably the problems encountered by the Bulava SLBM program - the most recent test launch of the missile, in September 2013, from the Aleksandr Nevskiy submarine, was unsuccessful.
