Submarine-project 941 heavy strategic missile undersea cruiser "Typhoon"
Designed to deliver nuclear-missile blows at great ranges on large military-industrial installations and naval bases. The submarine carries RSM-52 long range, three-stage solid-propellant ballistic missiles. The submarine is multi-hulled design. There are five inner habitable hulls inside a light superstructure with sound-absorbing coating, including the two main hulls. They are arranged parallel to each other and symmetrically to a centerplane. The twenty ballistic missiles are accomodated in silos arranged in two rows in front of the sail between the main hulls. The torpedo room is arranged in rge upper part of the bow between the hulls.
The officers are accomodated in comfortable double-berthed and four-berthed cabins with wash-stands, TV sets and air conditioners while the seamen are accomodated in small cozy bunk rooms. The submarine also features a gymnasium, solarium, swimming pool, sauna, pets compartment and other things to enhance habitability.
