Beneath the waves
It’s a huge, black monster – almost two hundred metres long; it can dive to four hundred metres below the sea. Typhoon is the largest submarine (潜水艇) ever built, launched thirty years ago in Russia but still travelling today. It can stay underwater for four months or even longer if it needs to. It usually carries weapons (武器) but there are plans that it will be used for peaceful purposes, carrying cargo from one country to the next beneath the sea.
