Maritime history has unique submarines that have shaped the present, both positively and negatively.
The Typhoon Class submarines are noteworthy in this context.
Russian submarines are the biggest ever designed and built, also known as Akula in native Russian.
The submarines were advanced for their time and meant to be the absolute retaliatory vessels, especially in sub-zero temperatures.
They were decked with 20 huge R-39 ‘Rif’ intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The sturdiness of the vessel's hull was the most important feature.
The submarines were equipped with ballistic projectiles, propelled by two nuclear reactors generating almost 200 megawatts of power each.
