Essentially unless some sort of major corruption scandal, or renegotiation with Sevmash takes place, we will be left to assume that the refit is on track. Given our track history here, some delays and overspending, as long as it isn't a complete clusterfuck, should be expected, and I wouldn't even criticize them to harshly. The project is of a scope that Sevmash has not successfully completed in the last 15-20 years.

Ah true at least you have the advantage of language perhaps you help me find out what happened to a few Russian Naval programs. Such as what happened to the Ivan Gren class ships wiki says building started in 2004 and nothing more. Is the only Kara class cruiser updated to a reasonably high standard if not to what level.
Is their a plan B for Borei if Bulava fails.
Is the Kashin class Smetlivy still in service seems old compared with the rest of the fleet

a preemptive thanks

A photo of project 1171 Ivan Gren, currently still under construction. Completion date is unclear. As of right now it's 1-2 years after original completion date. The new completion date seems to be 2011, with handover to the VMF in 2012.

A brief search turned up nothing on the Kara class.

Officially there is no plan B in case Bulava fails, but the reality is that the older Delta-IV subs have all undergone refit, and iirc all but one have new R-29RMU Sineva missiles, a proven weapon system. Their service life has iirc been extended to 2020, but nothing stops them from extending it further.

The Smetliviy is still in service with the Black Sea Fleet, and underwent modernization in the 90s. It's last major overhaul was 2006. ""
