The model is named after K-278 "Komsomolets", a Soviet nuclear submarine of the third generation, the only one of its kind. The ship served as a base for deep-sea diving and research. This submarine holds the diving record - in August 1985, the ship managed to dive as deep as 1027 meters, and this record has not yet been broken.
The journey to the depths of the sea was carried out under the command of Captain 1st Rank Yuri Aleksandrovich Zelensky. Yuri Alexandrovich went down in the glorious history of the fleet as Commander of the first crew of the first nuclear-powered submarine capable of conducting military operations from a depth of 1000 meters. At the moment, the experience of Yuri Alexandrovich is of immense practical value for the shipbuilding industry of the country. The first watch of this model was presented to Yuri Alexandrovich Zelensky as a sign of deep respect.
