Both the Typhoon class and the Red October models have missile launch capability. There are two pipes for a thin metal wire going from the back towards the front of the model, when pulled from the rear, the wires will enable the opening of the silo doors one by one. Therefore the missiles loaded with small metal springs from the inside will be launched out above. Should be fun for kids.Pages: 1 2 3 Social tagging: typhoon class
