Definitely Golf-class with three first generation SLBMs in the sail.  IIRC, they had to surface to launch.

Actually the K-129 was a Project 629A (Golf-II) class with three R-21 (SS-N-5) SLBMs.  The R-21 used a cold launch solid rocket to eject the missile from the flooded launch tube before the main motor ignited.  This allowed missiles to be launched in a water depth of 40-60m.
