The submarine was laid down at Leninsky Komsomol Shipyard (Komsomolsk, Far East) as a large-size sub in 1991 and put afloat on October 5, 1991.


In December 1991, acceptance certificate was signed. In 1992, the submarine was commissioned into Pacific Fleet.

In 1997, being promoted abroad by Rosoboronexport, the submarine arrived in Malaysia (with a call at Cam Ranh, Vietnam) to participate in the Thai-97 and the Lima-97 arms exhibitions and effectively demonstrated her capabilities.

There is no information on the submarine's current status in the press. Supposedly, she is under repair.
