On "Typhoon" there is a sports hall, sauna, swimming pool, separate cabins for all members of crew and much other, that allows really to consider a submarine as the present underwater cruiser both on battle possibilities, and on conditions of a habitability.
The submarine is equipped with floating antennas of a type permitting to accept a radio reports, target destination and signals of satellite navigation on large depth and under ice.
The first of the six members of the class to be commissioned was TK 208 in 1981, followed by TK 202 in 1983, TK 12 in 1984, TK 13 in 1985, TK 17 in 1987 and TK 20 in 1989.

Project 941 submarines are not the same submarines as those Russian subs designated by the NATO codename of "Akula" which are the smaller "Project 971 Bars" class nuclear powered attack submarines.
The oblate form of the submarine was prompted by the shallow waters in the area of Severodvinsk shipyards.
In 1992, one of the Typhoon submarines was severely damaged during the test firing of a missile.

The development of the 941 heavy strategic submarine was authorized in December 1972, and on 19 December 1973 the governmental officially issued the order to design and build the 941 ballistic missile submarine.
The Typhoon submarines were initially intended to be retrofitted with a replacement of the D-19 launch system with an advanced system, and the new SS-N-28 Bark missile.
The submarine was placed in a dock, with ship-yard workers upgrading her systems and equipment, with repairs lasting for 12 months.

 Typhoon submarines decommissioned-Blog-Russian Strategic Nuclear Forces
In the end of April 2004 the Navy Commander-in-Chief disbanded the division of Project 941 (Typhoon) strategic submarines, based in the Northern Fleet.
The reason the submarines are being decommissioned is that the R-39 (SS-N-20) missiles that they carry have reached end of their operational lives.
The submarines were to be refitted with new missiles during their overhaul originally scheduled in mid-1990s.

 Soviet Submarines
It rapidly built a fleet of fast, modern ocean-going submarines based on German models and continued to build and deploy diesel-electric attack submarines throughout the Cold War.
Because the names of individual Soviet submarines are seldom known abroad, the usual practice is to refer to them only as a member of a submarine class.
Diesel-electric submarines can be effective for missions such as coastal defense, where high speed and long range are not crucial.

 Haze Gray & Underway Photo Feature: Soviet & Russian Navy - 'TYPHOON' Class Ballistic Missile Submarines
The 'TYPHOON' class subs are by far the world's largest; they displace at least 33,800 tons, but some reports place the true figure at over 40,000 tons.
The hull was made up of two side-by-side cylindrical pressure hulls enclosed within the outer skin, plus three smaller pressure vessels - one for the torpedo tubes, one at the base of the sail for the control room, and one aft for steering gear.
6 'TYPHOON' class boats were built, but all are now out of service; most are being scrapped with US assistance, but one or two may be retained for refit with the not-yet-operational SS-N-28 SLBM.

 How many submarines are on patrol?-Blog-Russian Strategic Nuclear Forces
Project 941 submarines cannot possibly be among those five on patrol – the division that included these ships was disbanded in April 2004 and Dmitri Donskoy - the submarine that is used for Bulava tests – obviously cannot carry nuclear weapons.
But according to the START data, the Northern Fleet submarines have only 29 deployed missiles, instead of full complement of 32, while the submarines in the Pacific have 56 deployed missiles for their 64 tubes.
Besides, Novomoskovsk was one of the submarines (with Karelia) involved in the failures of February 2004.

This type of submarine, a Typhoon class submarine that snaked under the waters throughout the world carrying 20 missiles, with 10 nuclear warheads on the tip of each of those missiles, aimed at the United States of America.
This submarine was taken apart as part of the Nunn-Lugar program to reduce delivery systems and nuclear weapons in the old Soviet Union and in what we now refer to as Russia.

The Typhoon class Russian missle submarine is BIG, as long as the American boomers, but TWICE as wide--and 1 ship alone could wreak havoc and kill millions of people with its stretegic ICBM's.
What happens within the pages of 'Typhoon' are similar to what almost happened in the Soviet Union at the beginning of Gorbechev's reign when a military coup, afraid that the impending breakup of the country would ruin their career's, nearly toppled the government.
Worse, the submarines themselves lack that sense of mystery that makes them perfect metaphors for cold-war brinksmanship - we never know where they are, what they want to do or what they can do, but we know that they can end the world with the push of a button.

Since this is exactly the purpose of Class 4, we silently assume it is another appearance of this very type.
Although the Class 5 is designed as a mid-range warp probe, the special environment of the "accelerated" planet may require its use (also because of its low observability).

All but one of the Typhoon class submarines are slated to be withdrawn from service within a few years, and it is unlikely that units of the class would be modified to accomodate new missiles.

The unusual launch was the first time a commercial payload had ever been sent from Earth into orbit from a submarine and the first commercial space launch in the history of the Russian Navy.
The submarine launch plaform was Novomoskovsk K-407, a 667BDRM Delta-IV-class or Delfin-class submarine of the Russian Northern Fleet's 3rd Flotilla.
The benefits of a submarine launch are safety and ease of putting a payload into a particular orbit.

As of mid-1998 three nuclear-powered submarines were under construction: the first fourth-generation strategic Borei-class ballistic submarine; a Severodvinsk-class "multi purpose" prototype submarine, and one Akula-class attack submarine.
Responsibility for decomissioned nuclear-powered submarines was transferred from the Defence Ministry to the Ministry of the Atomic Energy in late 1998 under Government Resolution No.518.
Consequently, all the operations for the dismantling of nuclear-powered submarines and ships was transferred totally to the industrial sector -- the defence enterprises Zvezdochka and Nerpa located in the North, and Zvezda in the Far East -- the three Russian enterprises that scrap old submarines.

The Typhoon also has 20 ballistic missile silos and is considered the largest submarine in the world (ITAR-Tass, June 26 in FBIS-SOV, June 26).
The design of the Dmitry Donskoy submarine places its ballistic missile silos outside the ship’s rigid hull, a design measure intended to improve the crew’s survivability rate in the event of an accident, according to ITAR-Tass.

Borey Class submarines reportedly incorporate a number of new advances, including improved quietness and the ability to carry 12-20 of the new SS-NX-30 submarine launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs).
It is a submarine launched version of the SS-27 Topol-M, which represents the pinnacle of Russian ballistic missile technology and is claimed to be invulnerable to any modern anti-ballistic missile (ABM) defenses.
