Another one unusual boat. Made of popular in that time military doctrine of submarines operating in fleet order (like British K type from early 20th). A boat has all usual for this type flaws, such as long dive time, bad handling, low crush depth and so on. The submarine was armed with 2*130mm guns in turrets, 1*37mm AAA gun, and 6 torpedo tubes. Only 3 of this type were built and all of them was assigned to training duty.
In 1941, fleet command was trying to use P-1 (the head ship of this project) to deliver supplies to troops at Hanko island. It was the first and the last mission for this boat. She runs into a minefield and sunk with all hands in between 9 and 11 September 1941.
