The results of the mooring, as well as the winter stage of factory sea trials, completed in January last year, showed that a number of auxiliary systems of the Kazan submarine do not meet the requirements of the Ministry of Defense. The submarine was sent for revision to Sevmash, where it is now located.

Compared to the 885 Ash project, the new submarine received many improvements and new systems that have not been used on submarines before.
