"The shipyard completed preparations for the submarine to sail out in October 2016. Factory and government acceptance tests were held in November-December. The submarine made several sorties to check its systems and mechanisms. The test results confirmed compliance with the technical parameters of the project and the high quality of performance of the shipyard and contractors," it said.

The acceptance act signing ceremony was attended by representatives of the Navy Main Command, Northern fleet command, Belomorskaya base, heads of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, Zvezdochka Shipyard, Rubin design bureau, the Arktika, Aurora, Severny Reid and other contractors who contributed to the fulfilment of the state order.

According to open sources, the submarine was developed from the Project 667BDRM K-64 SSBN into a carrier of underwater craft. It was in the yard for modernization since 1999. The missile compartment was cut out from the hull and replaced by a carrier of small submarines. It may also serve as a nuclear deep-water station.
