   Development of improved Project 671 class boat commenced in 1963. In 1972, the first of the Project 671RT Syomga class boat (NATO designation Victor II class) was built at the Gorky shipyard, being produced in alternate years to the Charlie II design there. Four boats were built there, whilst another three were constructed at the Admiralty Shipyard in 1975.

   Initially called the Uniform class by NATO, the Victor II class is marked by a 6.1-m extension inserted into the hull forward of the sail. This was to make room for the new generation of 650-mm heavy torpedoes together with the power equipment to handle them.

   The Soviets discovered that the Victor II class boats could be easily tracked by Americans and subsequently ceased production of this type, to design improved Victor III class.

   All surviving Victor I and II class boats had been decommissioned by 1996.
