Topic: How to destroy a Typhoon Submarine?


The Russian's Typhoon SSBN are impressive underwater creatures.

It's almost impossible to be sunk.

Any views how to get rid of it in a war?

With tons of firepower

Either by torpedos or by missiles; if the sub is surfacing a Tomahawk or Harpoon might do the trick though the radar capabilities and early warning system on these subs might track the launch before you can get off the donkeys ass. Their escorts will come on to you as a piece of red meat in front of rats, so a couple of torpedos and full speed out of the scene might do the trick.

Or ram it... Straight on...

Do SSBN's have escorts?
I was under the impression that they go out alone and lurk somewhere in the depths.

well its manmade..it can be sunk.

unfortunately...if you try to conventionally kill this bemoth...in your in trouble. it had better be a dead on convential with a massive explosive force. however these methods may work too



1. Multiple high explosive hedge hogs concentrated in the weaker aspect areas of the sub..requires some severe pinpoint locating and tracking. firing the multiple salvoed explosives in a concentrated area over the subs missle hatches where its weakest because of the through fare hatch design may do the trick.

2. One very extreme depth charge. enough said.

3. Tracking and ramming by convential submarine: extreme measure..should put quite a crimp in the subs future.

4. multiple subroc attacks from both axis of movement at least 20 subrocs firesd in salvos left to right of its base course and high and low to its depth should irritate it severly. maybe get lucky and blow a propellor shaft open.

5. Ruble reward..offer a sufficent amount to the subs captain and crew to deliver said sub to you...and honor the commitment so that you can get more...

6. Pray. pray very very hard that the damn thing sinks due to lousey maintenance or something.

7. Final solution..kill it while its in its dock.

A torpedo to the conning tower. That'll kill any sub. Either that or the screw.

Is it technically possible to fit a nuclear warhead on a torpedo?
