There are submarines and there are submarines! Not all these seacraft are created equal. Some of them, like the ones used by the U.S. Navy and the Soviet Navy, are dangerous seacraft with many military and defense capabilities.

What makes them so different from regular old submarines? Well, they all have record-breaking stats. Take the Typhoon class for example; this seacraft is the world’s largest submarine with a submerged displacement of 52,910 tons. It can easily accommodate 160 crew members for more than 120 days and can travel at amazing speeds of up to 32 mph (52 km/h) underwater.

Then there's the Ohio class, the biggest submarine ever built for the U.S. Navy. When submerged, it displaces 18,750 tons of water and can carry more missiles than its competitors.

It's not just these two submarines that have specifications bound to impress. In our video, we bring you eight more such submarines along with footage of them in action. Have we piqued your curiosity yet? Do you want to see how these beasts of the sea navigate themselves? Are you curious about their living quarters and how they accommodate so much crew? Then, do not miss this clip!
