Project 1083.1 Paltus

These small deep-diving nuclear-powered submarines were probably designed for covert underwater intelligence collection [ "research" or "ocean engineering"). The 'Yankee Stretch' conversion probably serves as a "mother ship" for transport and support of these craft. The "Paltus" nomenclature is also associated with the entirely unrelated Project 877 submarines designated "Kilo" by NATO.
