MOSCOW, ($1=76.79 Russian Rubles) — Russia’s diversified design bureau for marine engineering, Rubin, has unveiled a project for a modified version of the Guardian submarine that the company is working on. Rubin is the greatest designer of Soviet and Russian submarines – 85% of them are the work of the company.

The new modified 2.0 version of the Strazh submarine is 72 meters long and has a displacement of 1,300 tons. Rubin says the increased length is a major reason for engineers to offer many more features. One of them is the reduced radar signature achieved through new contours, penetrating the wavy shaft and reducing friction. However, this, say the company, not only improves the radar characteristics of the submarine but allows us to think about improving its stability and the integration of weapon platforms.
According to preliminary data, the submarine is designed to reach a maximum speed of 21 knots. If it travels at 10 knots, it can travel a maximum of 4,000 miles. Ruby achieves this speed by integrating a more powerful power plant, as well as reducing the resistance to movement in the surface position.
The armament is as high as possible according to the characteristics of the submarine. Small-caliber automatic machine gun, two cruise missiles, four torpedo tubes, each 324 mm.
The submarine is designed to carry an additional payload. Engineers have mastered the space by providing the opportunity to build two multifunctional airtight hangars. They can store boats, additional weapon systems, as well as unmanned aerial vehicles. Guard 2.0 has a sonar antenna and radar stations.
In addition to designing submarines, the state-owned Russian company Rubin creates marine complexes, offshore structures, training bases, maintenance, repair and modernization, design, production, and testing of prototypes and serial samples of ship accessories and devices.
