Alexander Nevskiy, a strategic submarine of the Project 955 class, arrived in Vilyuchink, Kamchatka on September 30, 2015 at 17:00 local time (8:00 MSK).

Alexander Nevskiy is the second submarine of its class and the first Project 955 submarine to be permanently based in Vilyuchinsk. It left its temporary base in Gadzhievo around August 18, 2015. Another Project 955 submarine, Vladimir Monomakh, is expected to transfer to the Pacific in 2016. To prepare for the arrival, the base in Vilyuchinsk has undergone extensive modernization.

It appears that the submarine is preparing to conduct a test launch of a Bulava missile from the Sea of Okhotsk to the Kanin Peninsula.
