The Typhoon is a missile boat. It's the biggest in the world, but it's only a missile boat.

They had sailed from Japan, and had reached a refuel point, but it had a US ship parked there, so they were supposed to move onto an alternate point, when they were ordered to surrender, because the war was over. Both subs were taken to Hawaii, along with another one based on improved U-boat technology from Germany, where they were examined by the US Navy. They were all sunk off Hawaii, because under the treaty they would have had to allow the Soviet Union access to them.
