She’s a beauty!

Too bad the new submarine is an old Soviet submarine!
The submarine they picture has been around awhile, via DIA:

SOVIET DELTA SUBMARINE FIRING SS-N-18 MISSILES – Edward L. Cooper, 1987
A Soviet DELTA III nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine firing SS-N-18 missiles. The DELTA III submarine was 155 meters long, had 16 missile firing tubes, and carried SS-N-18 nuclear missiles.

But, she is pretty… For being 20 years old.
