Special nuclear submarine / nuclear deep station 1 rank / deep technical tool — a component of the complex pr.1083K. Deep-water nuclear submarine designed SPMBM "Malachite". Chief Designer — S.M.Bavilin (after 2001 probably Konovalov YM). Creating complex conceptual design of the second generation pr.10830 / pr.1083 with deep pr.10831 PLA and PLA-carrier pr.09786 "Orenburg" (BS-136) was conducted using the experience of creating experimental complexes pr.1851. After the conceptual design of PLA pr.10830 decorated USSR CM Resolution on the establishment of a submarine pr.10831 Polyspherical rugged. Organized by the performance of R &D on developing the technology of manufacturing Polyspherical hull and lightweight monoblock filler, as well as to create a set boat equipment. Apparently, in 1988-1990 gg developed and approved the technical projects and work boats. Project development was carried out simultaneously with the prototyping equipment placement in spherical compartments of the boat. In 1991, when almost finished blocks hull boats on the customer's specifications made adjustments in the technical design of the accommodation 10830 in the bow of the boat additional equipment (probably systems for special equipment). The revised technical project pr.10830 / 1083K complex is presented and protected in May 1992
The data contained in this article are hypothetical and prikidochnymi. All the facts and figures or fictional or based on open and unclassified sources of information (see below).
Many sources say the name of the project number "210", which is the abbreviated name of the order — number of factory boats. Just in terms of sources reported that the key project "Losharik" — is a natural self-designation and unofficial name. As part of the PLA sources pr.10831 corresponds to the name of boats NATO — NORSUB-5.
Design — PLA structure formed probably from titanium alloys, and possibly some new materials. Robust housing Polyspherical — ie consists of several sections, areas of interconnected passages. One of the compartments busy nuclear power plant. The space between the spheres of the pressure hull and streamlined body is filled with light monoblocks lightweight aggregate.
Powerplant — 1 nuclear reactor steam supply system E-17 and MAL capacity of 10,000 hp designed by OKB Mechanical Engineering. I.Afrikantova (Nizhny Novgorod).
The nuclear power plant is probably one of the spherical hull blocks and thus the biological protection of the reactor is carried out including the use of seawater layer.
Mechanics — mover — 1 main prop in a circular nozzle (supposedly), multiple thrusters columns with electric motors.
The crew — 25 officers
Length — 69 m (79 m to estimate)
Width — 7 m (?)
Draft — 5 m (?)
Normal displacement — 1390 tons
Total displacement — 2000 tons
Diving depth limit — up to 6000 m (not confirmed)
Submerged speed — 30 knots
Armament — No
Equipment — ordinary and special equipment for diving submarines and targets. — 2010 June-July — submarine AS-12 pr.10831 is based in deer Guba.
— 2010 — according to unconfirmed information, the submarine AS-12 had to be taken from the Russian Navy industry.
— 2012 September 27 — during the expedition "Sevmorgeo" boat carrier BS-136 pr.09786 Deepwater Station 1 rank AS-12 pr.10831 reached the North Pole. Expedition "Sevmorgeo" was carried out to clarify the high-latitude boundary of the continental shelf in the Arctic. Were made of rock samples to collect evidence of belonging Lomonosov and Mendeleev ridges in the Russian continental shelf. The results will provide the UN Commission on the Law of the Sea in 2014. "During the expedition we have drilled three wells at a depth of 2-2.5 km and took three cores (" pillars "of rock that are removed borer — Ed.). A core length of 60 inches, the second — 30, and the third — 20 inches . unimpeded access to the hardwood disturbed layer of silt on the bottom, reaches a thickness of five meters. " In parts of the documents deep-water station AS-12 named BN-220 — "tail number 220." In the expedition also took part icebreaker "Dixon" as a research vessel and icebreaker "Kapitan Dranitsin" as an icebreaker to ensure research
