VVA-14 was supposed to be part of the anti-aircraft complex consisting of the actual aircraft, search and targeting system "Petrel", antisubmarine weapons and fueling system afloat. The complex is designed to detect and destroy enemy submarines located in areas remote from the point of departure in the 1200-1500 km, both independently and in cooperation with other naval forces and assets.

Flight testing of the first phase completed by the summer of 1973 The results confirmed that the original aerodynamic configuration with a wing-like center is quite viable, and sustainer propulsion system and basic systems work reliably and ensure compliance with test flights.
