Trust me bro.
This was the old Borei based on unfinished Hull section of Akula & Oscar.....new Borei-A are even more quietRussia’s Borei strategic missile submarines are doubly quiet than the US Virginia class, Director of the Kurchatov Institute R&D Center Alexander Blagov said at a roundtable discussion on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the country’s nuclear submarine fleet.
"Enormous work was done to lower the noise level of submarines and reduce physical fields. The noise level of the Borei strategic underwater missile-carrying cruiser is five times lower than that of the third-generation Shchuka-B multipurpose nuclear-powered sub and two times lower than the US Virginia class," Blagov said.
