The submarine will undergo harbor and sea trials after the launch, Zvezdochka’s employees said. The Podmoskovye was commissioned late in 1986. According to open sources, the ship was sent to the Zvezdochka shipyard in 1999 for conversion into a special purpose submarine.

The former K-64 was removed from active service in 1999 and was ordered to be refitted. It was planned for her to be reactivated in 2002 to replace the Yankee 'Stretch' class KS-411. KS-411 had been the mothership for the Paltus-class mini submarines, which are believed to be used for a combination of oceanographic research, search and rescue, and underwater intelligence-gathering. K-64 was renamed BS-64 in 2002, and her central section containing 16 silos for ballistic missiles was removed to create space for the installation of scientific-experimental equipment. The modifications undertaken on the submarine are reportedly for deep-sea submarine nuclear stations and autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles in the interests of the Main Directorate of deep-sea research (Googie) of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

Project 667BDRM Delfin nuclear-powered subs are basic assets of Russia’s maritime nuclear deterrence force. Their construction was started in 1981 at Sevmash shipyard. In total, the Russian Navy received seven submarines of the class between 1984 till 1990. Presently, Russian Navy operates six of them. Zvezdochka shipyard has repaired and modernized all of them from 1999 to 2012. Verkhoturye SSBN – lead sub of the class– was laid down at Sevmash shipyard in February 1981.
