The submarine, intended to be air transportable, was Script error: No such module "convert". long, Script error: No such module "convert". in diameter, and weighed 37 tons. The sub was capable of descending to Script error: No such module "convert". below the surface and could carry 24 passengers at a time in addition to its crew. The sub was stationed at North Island Naval Station in San Diego and was never required to conduct an actual rescue operation. Last pilot to qualify was STS1(SS/DV) Jason E. Clayton. Mystic was replaced by the SRDRS on September 30, 2008 and began deactivation on October 1, 2008.[3] The submarine may be donated to the Naval Undersea Museum.

In fiction

In fiction, it was used in the 1978 film Gray Lady Down as a rescue vehicle following a submarine accident, as well as Tom Clancy's novel The Hunt for Red October and film based on it The Hunt for Red October to ferry men from the USS Dallas to the Red October.
