    The development of multipurpose fifth-generation multi-purpose nuclear-powered submarine design will continue until 2020, according to alakhit's General Director Vladimir Dorofeev.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – Russia’s Malakhit design bureau plans to develop a multipurpose fifth-generation multi-purpose nuclear-powered submarine design by 2020, its director said Wednesday.

    Malakhit's General Director Vladimir Dorofeev said early last month the bureau had signed a contract with the Russian Defense Ministry to design the advanced nuclear submarine with construction to start sometime after 2020.

    "The development will continue until 2020," Dorofeev told reporters and noted the importance of integrating the submarines into Russia’s single information space despite its stealth capabilities.

    "In other words, this is the submarine’s interaction with spacecraft, surface vessels, coastal command posts, submarines and others," he stressed.
