The Prince Pozharsky is the final of the eight submarines of project 995 and the fifth of the upgraded project 995A. The submarines were designed by the Rubin center. Three submarines of the family have already been passed over to the Navy.

The upgraded project includes the Prince Vladimir which had its keel laid in 2012. Two other submarines - Prince Oleg and Generalissimo Suvorov - had their keels laid in 2014. In 2015 the Emperor Alexander III followed suit.

About Project 955A
On 15 December 2009, a Defense Ministry official announced that the laying down of the fourth Project 955 Borei-class submarine had been postponed from December to the first quarter of 2010. The reason for the delay was said to be "organizational and technical reasons". The fourth ship of the 955 class will actually be the first improved "955A" variant. It is reported by unnamed sources that this modification will include major structural changes and probably other changes.
