The Victor-II class submarines were built at the Admiralty Shipyard in St.
Petersburg from 1967 to 1978.
Submarines in active service are stationed at Bolshaya Lopatka.
- 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.
