"The concept of the fifth-generation nuclear submarine of the Husky project is being formed. A preliminary design of the perspective sub is being produced," he said.

The characteristics of the perspective submarine, its armaments and equipment "will depend on the tasks set by the Navy," Ponomarev added.

The USC earlier said the concept and a rough sketch of the multi-purpose fifth-generation Husky-class submarine have to be ready in two years. The new submarine is designed by the Malakhit bureau in St. Petersburg. At present Russia is building a series of fourth-generation submarines of project 885 (code Yasen).
