RUSSIAN TYPHOON

Typhoon class submarine is a type of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine deployed by the Soviet Navy in the 1980s. With a maximum displacement of 26,000 tonnes, Typhoons are the largest class of submarine ever built. In its day it was one of the most feared weapons of mass destruction ever made. Although technically able to successfully deploy their long-range nuclear missiles while moored at their docks, Soviet doctrine for these vessels was to have them attack North America while submerged under the Arctic Circle, avoiding the traversal of the GIUK gap to remain safe from enemy attack submarines and anti-submarine forces. The image on the coins shows the Typhoon Submarine in North Arctic Region.
