India's Submarine rescue solution

Most rescue diesel-electric submarine ("BS"). R & D started CDB-112 (later renamed the CDB "Lapis") in 1964-1968 gg in the study of technical solutions rescue submarine. The decision of the USSR on the design and construction adopted September 20, 1967 Design was conducted using the experience of testing and trial operation rescue submarine pr.666 . 

Technical design of the submarine "Lenok" developed in 1969 (without the conceptual design, the chief designer of B, A, Leontiev). Working drawings PL pr.940 ready by 1972 and work began on the preparation of the construction of submarines in the factory "Him. Lenin Komsomol" (Komsomolsk-on-Amur). Parent PL BS-486 (serial №194) founded February 22, 1974, launched on September 7, 1975 and commissioned to the Navy 21 January 1976 the second boat BS-257 (serial №195) laid February 23, 1978, was launched on May 27, 1979 and passed the Navy September 1, 1979 Parent submarine transferred into trial operation (1976-1978 years) in the Navy 9 February 1976 to the Pacific Fleet (second PL BS-257 moved to the North Fleet).
