The Knyaz Vladimir, meaning ‘Vladimir the Great’ is capable of launching 20 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which can devastate cities up to 5,778 miles away.

By comparison the US’s own super sub is armed with 24 ICMBs, but the missile range is more than a 1,00 miles shorter.

The Borei II-class sub was unveiled in a ceremony in northern Russia on November 17, attended by the commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Vladimir Korolyov, and a host of top-ranking diplomats.
