According to the developers, Arcturus will be 20% smaller than existing types due to the use of more advanced missiles. The length of the ship will be 134 meters, width – 15.7 meters, the crew of the submarine will be about 100 people. The representative of the Rubin Central Design Bureau emphasized that the first samples of Arcturus will appear no earlier than in the “second half of the 21st century.”
