Russia's USC said that submarine production and delivery work is continuing on schedule
Construction of new nuclear-powered attack submarines appears to be running behind schedule, however, despite USC claims to the contrary
Russia's United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) said that there has been no decision to postpone the keel-laying of the seventh Project 955/955A Dolgoruky (Borey/Borey-A)-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN), and that other submarine production and delivery work is on track.
"All lay-downs and our deliveries are going according to schedule," said USC president Alexei Rakhmanov, according to Russian news agency reports on 15 October.
Submarine builder Sevmash announced in June that it would lay down the seventh Dolgoruky hull in December 2015.
