Russia's new nuclear-powered submarine Gepard was built at
the Northern Engineering Works (Sevmash) in
Severodvinsk. "This is the first nuclear submarine
to be built at Sevmash in three years. According to official figures, the
yard used to launch five or six nuclear-powered submarines a year. In the
61 years of its existence Sevmash has made 170 submarines, 135 of them
nuclear. Gepard is a third-generation multirole submarine. Its keel
was laid back in 1992. It is of a class that is regarded as the quietest
of all Russian-made submarines. According to information in the public

basis of the Neustrashimy guard-ship (Project 11540). The Neustrashimy
(fearless) was commissioned by the Navy in 1993 and confirmed its high
specifications in action. The Korsar (Project 11541) is intended for search
and elimination of the enemy's surface ships and submarines, accomplishment

at ranges of up to 130km. The artillery includes the 10mm A-190E universal
shipborne missile and artillery system with the rate of fire of 80 rounds

up to 8km. Anti-submarine weapons include six torpedo tubes for firing
missile torpedoes and SET-65E and 53-65KE torpedoes, as well as the RBU-6000
