K-211 Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy is a Project 667BDR Kalmar class (NATO reporting name: "Delta III") Russian nuclear ballistic missile submarine. The submarine was built by the Russian shipyard Sevmash in the late 1970s and joined the Soviet fleet in 1980. The submarine continued to serve in the Russian navy after the collapse of the Soviet Union and, as of 2009[update], is active in the Russian Pacific fleet.
The submarine is slated to be retired and replaced by the Borei class submarine in the next coming years.
