The heavy, fast and heavily armed Project 949A ANTEY (NATO: SSGN of the OSCAR II class) submarines were used by the Soviet fleet, and now by the Russian Navy, for attacking surface shipping.
They were specially designed to fight the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier battle groups. Their high submerged speed allowed them to keep pace with the fast carrier battle groups and attack them with salvos of their 24 P-700 GRANIT (NATO: SS-N-19 SHIPWRECK) cruise missiles that can be launched underwater. NATO is well aware of the great danger presented by this class of submarine. The KURSK joined the Russian fleet in 1994 and served in the North Fleet.
During its service the KURSK undertook two combat patrols in the Atlantic and in the Mediterranean. Following the detonation of torpedo warheads on 12. August 2000 the submarine sank, taking the lives of all crew aboard. The hull was raised in 2001 and scrapped.
