….Ever Just Went to Sea.

"Russia's second Severodvinsk-class submarine K-561 Kazan , which is a modified Project 08851 Yasen-M design, went to sea for the first time for builder's trials on September 24.

The massive nuclear-powered guided missile submarine (SSGN) was designed by the Malachite design bureau in St. Petersburg and was built in the northern Russian city of Severodvinsk.

Wasn't a Shkval that blew up the Kursk, was a 'standard' high-test-peroxide Type 53.

Shkvals are solid rockets, and ironically much safer.
