HT Portrait Typhoon

The Typhoon Class Strategic Missile Submarine is the missile submarine of the Consortium in the Navy gamemode. The Typhoon submarine requires a field prison camp, costs $3800 and is deployed at the shipyard.[1]

OverviewEdit

The Typhoon has stealth and stealth detection capabilities. When attacking, a Typhoon submarine will launch one homing torpedo against its target every 20 seconds. These will loiter around in the target area for 25 seconds, or until they find a target. It can also surface to launch two Tomahawk missiles against enemy structures.

BackgroundEdit

The Typhoon class was developed under Project 941 as the Russian Akula class (Акула), meaning shark. It is sometimes confused with other submarines, as Akula is the name NATO uses to designate the Russian Project 971 Shchuka-B (Щука-Б) class attack submarines. The project was developed with the objective to match the SLBM armament of Ohio-class submarines, capable of carrying 192 nuclear warheads, 100 kt each.

However, at the time, state-of-the-art Soviet SLBMs were substantially larger and heavier than their American counterparts (the R-39 is more than two times heavier than the Trident I; it remains the heaviest SLBM in service worldwide). The submarine had to be scaled accordingly.
