Individual Submarines

Northern Fleet:

factory no. 801. Commissioned on December 30, 1972.
factory no. 802. Commissioned in 1974. The vessel is now moored at the naval shipyard Shkval in Polyarny. Due to a lack of funds, necessary repairs and maintenance have not been carried out. The submarine has not been officially decommissioned, but it is not expected that it will actually be repaired. The naval yard's principal responsibility is to keep the vessel afloat and to ensure necessary fire safety precautions.
factory no. 803. Commissioned in 1975.
factory no. 625. Commissioned in 1977.
factory no. 627. Commissioned on October 28, 1978.
factory no. 804. Commissioned in 1976. The vessel is now moored at naval yard no. 10 Shkval in Polyarny. Extensive repairs are necessary, but there is no money earmarked expressly for this work. It is unclear what will be done with K-488, but it is likely that it will be removed from the active forces.
factory no. 621. Commissioned in 1976.
