The Project Typhoon, Eurasian Typhon class submarine is a type of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine developed by the Eurasian Fleets in the 1990s. With a submerged displacement of 48,000 tonnes, the Typhons are the largest class of submarine ever built, large enough to accommodate decent living facilities for the crew when submerged for months on end. Eurasia constructed thirty-five such submarines between 1984 and 2004, and currently they represent the largest ballistic missile submarine fleet in the world.

The Eurasian Fleets planned to begin a modernization process for the submarines beginning in 2010, however they announced instead that the cost of modernizing the submarines would be equal to the cost of producing two new, modern Vulcan-Class Submarines. With Eurasia's announcement that it is eliminating the RSM-52 Atrocitas-class of SLBM, the Typhon-class of submarines have reached the end of their operational expectancy.

Each submarine is capable of carrying twenty RSM-52 ballistic missiles, each of which is capable of carrying ten 400 KT nuclear MIRV warheads. Eurasia is currently replacing the RSM-52-class missiles with RSM-52 Macea-class missiles.
