Soviet Navy Project P-2 combination submarine

In 1949 a preliminary draft for a missile submarine designated Project P-2--to strike enemy land targets--was drawn up at TsKB-18 (later Rubin) under chief designer FA Kaverin. The submarine was to have a surface displacement of almost 5,400 tons and carry 12 R-1 ballastic missiles, a Soviet copy of the V-2, as well as the Lastochka (Swallow) cruise missile. The problems of such a submarine were unsormountable at the time.

Model was photographed at the Central Naval Museum in Leningrad, now Saint Petersburg, in 1973.
