The submarines of the project of the Central Design Bureau of Marine Engineering / TsKB MT / Rubin 636.3 B-261 Novorossiysk, Rostov-on-Don and Stary Oskol are built at the Admiralty Shipyards in St. Petersburg. At Novorossiysk, the hull of the boat is now almost formed.

The submarine "Sevastopol" was chosen as the head for the new air-independent installation / VNEU /, the design of which is currently being developed. Since July 2013, the design of the boat began work related to the modernization and modification of the project for the installation of VNEU.
