—Typhoon Attack Sub
The Typhoon Attack Submarine is the primary attack vessel of the Soviet navy.
The main warship of the Soviet naval forces, Typhoons are submarines capable of moving quickly through the sea, ambushing any enemies with a salvo of torpedoes, quickly sinking them, and returning to the depths within seconds. Though they are one of the worlds most dangerous ship killers, they cannot attack land targets and have difficulty maneuvering due to their length.

The Typhoon is the Soviet main naval submarine. It excels in naval engagements by firing a salvo of torpedoes to its target. While they are quite powerful on its own, they also gain a benefit of being permanently submerged, which makes them invisible to radar and in combat. This allows the Typhoon to ambush any ship without notice.
However, they cannot engage against either ground or air so they are restricted to naval combat only. While they are submerged, anti-submarine units can defeat them easily. If they're attacked, they'll be forced to surface, becoming vulnerable to further land and air attacks.
- The Typhoon Attack Sub makes its first appearance at the beginning of the Third Great War in Bleed Red as a controllable unit and Side Effect as a buildable one.
- In Heaven and Hell, 12 Typhoons will be positioned after captured Port Authority Building, and destroy all of them is the mission objective.
