VILYUCHINSK, March 27 (RIA Novosti) – Russia plans to equip its submarine forces with long-range high-precision weapons, which will enhance their strategic deterrent capabilities, Russia’s defense minister said Wednesday.

“There are plans to equip the submarine forces with long-range high-precision weapons. This will significantly enhance the possibility of using submarines as a strategic deterrent,” Sergei Shoigu told a meeting at the Pacific Fleet's submarine command headquarters.

The defense minister said the Pacific Fleet’s submarine forces "have particular importance for ensuring strategic stability and Russia’s military security in the Far East."

The meeting focused on developing the infrastructure of the nuclear-powered submarine base in view of plans to launch fourth and fifth-generation submarines.
