Before the descent, the bow below the waterline on board the submarine suffered a picture shark later stripe with a shark appeared to form the crew. Despite the later start of the project, head cruiser went out on sea trials for a month before the American "Ohio" (4 July 1981). Total from 1981 to 1989 was launched and commissioned 6 boats of the "Shark."

Design feature is the presence of boats within easy corps of five solid buildings. Two of them are basic, have a diameter of 8,5 m and are arranged parallel to each other, on the principle of the catamaran. In front of the ship, between the main rugged, located missile compartment with missile complex D-19. In addition, there are two separate sealed compartments: the torpedo compartment and the compartment management module from a central location, combined with a compartment for radio-arms. Relocation and placement of the three compartments in the space between the main body allowed to raise fire safety and survivability of the boat. Robust housing submarines made of titanium alloy, light - steel coated with non-resonant protivolokatsionnym and soundproof rubber coating weighing 800 tons.

To ensure that these boats were able to carry on duty at high latitudes, fencing, felling done very durable, able to breach the ice thickness 2-2,5 m (in winter ice thickness in the Arctic Ocean varies from 1.2 to 2 m, and in some places reaches 2,5 m). From below the ice surface is covered with growths in the form of icicles or stalagmites of considerable size. When surfacing submarine, removing the bow rudders, slowly pressed to the ice canopy specially designed for this bow and wheelhouse, and then abruptly blown main ballast tanks.
