The repair of the top-secret special-purpose nuclear supply line AS-31 “Losharik” will last up to four years. A source told reporters in the military-industrial complex.
Then the underwater vehicle will be returned to the combat strength, the source added. PO “Sevmash” declined to comment.
In March, the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center in Severodvinsk completed a month-long operation to unload the core of a nuclear reactor from a damaged special submarine. Its titanium body was virtually unharmed. According to preliminary information, the reactor will not be replaced.
Earlier, The National Interest (NI) released an article about Loshirik. The publication writes that the submarine has become the subject of speculation in the West.
