Russian press quotes a source in the defense industry as saying that the Borey-B project that was considered for some time was not included in the 2018-2027 State Armament Program. Instead, Sevmash is expected to build six more Project 955A/Borey-A strategic submarines.

The original Project 955 order included eight submarines - three Project 955/Borey are already in service and five more are at various stages of construction. The lead submarine of the Project 955A, Knyaz Vladimir, was moved out of the dry dock in November 2017.
