Project 941 which muricans call as Typhoon is the Russian Akula. Worlds largest submarine with 20 SLBMs and 120 days on station (or endurance?)max steel wrote:Is it true that the US Navy had intended to replace its Los Angeles-class attack submarines with the powerful new Seawolf-class, which was designed specifically to hunt a new generation of advanced Soviet designs like the Project 941 Akula—which are better known by their NATO moniker as the Typhoon-class. ? Difference between Project 941 and 971 Akula class ?
Project 971 which muricans call as Akula is the Russian Shuka-B (or V, thats what I read/understand.... the roman numerical in the Shuka class I, II, III, IV, V). Its the Russian hunter killer class submarines which have roamed off the US coasts with their periscopes watching the moving cars. (If I find it, I will post that article which was published in a Russian magazine that ceased to exist many years ago)
