A source close to the Russian Navy revealed the fate of the "Dmitry Donskoy" submarine, the world's largest nuclear submarine.

He added, "The submarine is still in the Russian Zviozdachka Center for Ship and Submarine Repair, and a specialized technical staff ensures its buoyancy and survivability."

Russia had developed this submarine to be a heavy strategic submarine carrying intercontinental missiles, and included it in the Northern Fleet forces in 1982. Until 1989, 5 other submarines of this class were also operated and later removed from service.

This submarine is 172 meters long, 23.3 meters wide, and its water displacement is 48,000 tons. It can dive to a depth of 400 meters, carry a crew of 160 people, and move at a speed of 27 knots. Its main armament systems include 20 Bulava ballistic missiles. And 533 mm torpedoes, and "Igla" anti-air missiles.
