Russia's Nuclear Underwater Drone Could Trigger 300-Foot Tsunamis, Headed For Battlefield By 2027

A nuclear-powered underwater drone capable of unleashing two megatonnes of hell to destroy enemy naval bases with massive tsunamis is under development in Russia, according to a state news agency.

“It will be possible to mount various nuclear charges on the ‘torpedo’ of the Poseidon multipurpose seaborne system, with the thermonuclear single warhead similar to the Avangard charge to have the maximum capacity of up to 2 megatonnes in TNT equivalent,” a source in the Russian defense sector told TASS on Thursday.

With the drone’s nuclear munition, the underwater craft “is primarily designed to destroy reinforced naval bases of a potential enemy,” the source explained.

“Thanks to its nuclear power plant, the Poseidon will approach the target for an intercontinental range at a depth of over 1 km and at a speed of 60-70 knots (110-130 km/h),” another source revealed to TASS.

Meanwhile, TASS explains to its readers, “it has no official confirmation of this information,” however, being a government-owned corporation in Russia, it is likely this knowledge is coming from insiders to combat an informational war with the West.

Another unnamed source supposedly tied in with the Russian defense sector said, “the Poseidon drone will join the Russian Navy under the existing armament program for 2018-2027 and will be carried by a newly specialized submarine currently under construction at the Sevmash Shipyard.”

The underwater drone is a new project under the watchful eye of Vladimir Putin. (Source: TASS) 

Russian President Vladimir Putin first unveiled the underwater drone during his state-of-the-nation speech in March to the Federal Assembly. Putin warned these drones could be armed with both conventional and nuclear munitions and would be capable of “destroying enemy infrastructure, carrier-led naval task forces, and other objectives.”

Efforts to contain Russia have failed, face it,” Putin declared in a two-hour speech to the nation, which included computer simulations of new arms including hypersonic systems, intercontinental missiles, and underwater nuclear drones.

According to Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Sergei Korolyov, the drone’s miniature nuclear power plant has successfully passed operational tests with the military. The chief naval commander said the new weapon system would “enable the fleet to accomplish a broad range of missions in waters adjacent to the enemy territory.”

In recent times, Putin has led an ambitious modernization program of its military in acquiring new weapon systems, which could be just enough leverage to ensure a rebalancing of power between Washington. On Tuesday, Putin stressed that Russia was forced to develop new weapons to guarantee a “strategic balance in the world for the next decades.”

This is more bad news for Washington, as it appears their strategy to contain Russia through sanctions and expanded NATO deterrence operations along the Russia border have not just failed but backfired. In response, Putin was forced to develop a wide array of new weapon systems that can bypass NATO’s defenses, including hypersonic weapons, and what we recently discovered: nuclear-powered underwater drones capable of unleashing significant tsunamis against enemy naval ports.

While TASS does not define who exactly the “enemy” is, we must add, it is the United States. War is knocking on Washington’s door, will the Trump administration entertain its new guest?

Fake news. Giant tsunamis created by nuclear weapons are a myth. The US tried several times to create large ocean waves with nuclear weapons and failed. Several blasts in the South Pacific and one off the coast of San Diego were conducted with test instrumentation to measure wave heights. Nada every time. Apparently water absorbs the energy without going into a long wave generation. Real tsunamis are unleashed by earth slippages over long distances and with equivalent energies of millions of megatons.

Putin the Pussy now has to resort to claims of science fiction weapons. PTP made clear statements that he would destroy the "source" if there were any additional attacks on Syrian forces. This was quickly followed direct attacks on Syrian forces, and not action by PTP.

Even Bibi went to Moscow to read PTP the riot act, after which PTP reversed himself and state Russian would not consider providing the S300 to Syria. Followed by more direct attacks on Syrian forces just to make the point.

All PTP has left is to make loud scary noises.

Not that I really care about bragging rights but when the crown of foresight 

is placed on my elongated skull of vision I feel benevolent enough to bless you fuckers

with a reminder:

-I was the first on ZH to enrich the world with the concept of a-symmetric delivery

 and a-symmetric use of multi-megaton nuclear warheads.

-I was the first on ZH to point out that the USA in economic, political, cultural 

 and technological terms can be defined by a strip of land 200 miles from the coast inland

 all around continental USA.

Check out my previous post from a year ago; that's right my name is CANCER and

I do not discriminate to me you are all just puss-filled pimples cohabitating the

rectums of the mulatto cocksucker and the jew-whore toyboy trump.

 

PS: If I was Russia or China I would still go for a 100 megaton nuclear warhead (with todays

      technology that device would have the size and weight of a pick-up, unlike the 50 megaton

      tsar bomba from the 1960's who had the size and weight of a fully loaded trailer truck) with

      destination Yellowstone Caldera.

      Just try to come up with as many ways as possible to deliver a pick-up truck at the center of

      Yellowstone.

Today's cultures have nothing to do with "conservation" and everything to do with "live for today at the expense of tomorrow."

If Russia wants to "modernize" its weapons, to should find a non-nuclear weapon (like kinetic weapons for example). The superpowers failed to learn a lesson from the Cold War nuclear arms race. Nukes are dirty. To make a nuke generates dangerous radioactive waste (which resides in your nation's backyard). NK discovered what testing nukes does. Accidents can happen, so holding and deploying nukes are also hazardous activities.

Every nation with nukes has displayed an alarming amount of stupidity. Example: US nuclear carriers and subs. As if these war vessels would not be targeted during a war! LOL

I'd be more concerned with the tsunami of liberals, socialists, progressives, and leftists being churned out by our education and mass media 'systems'.  They pose the greatest threat to freedom.

Smerf,

You have completely missed the point of all past programs ......  all current and future concerns is that they pose the greatest threat, an existential calamity, to serfdom and indentured servitude.

But you cannot halt the progress of novel intelligence and greater information unveiling new realities that have been hidden from you in order to enrich a perverse and corrupted few. There are just too many easily available catastrophic vulnerabilities, both zeroday and otherwise, to fully exploit and expand upon, with more and more agents practically invisible and virtually anonymous stealthily targeting the systemic problems for destruction and eradication.

What evidence do you have that liberals, socialists, progressives, and leftists are being churned out by our education and mass media 'systems', rather than being something Emerging Revolutionary despite the core base programming offered by embedded education and mass media systems?

During the Cold War, the SU already had developed the idea to detonate a nuclear device above the North Sea so it could cause a tsunami that would destroy and flood the UK and the Netherlands. This is just an underwater variation of it. One of the differences is that you can mount it on a submarine and go stealth instead of delivering it through an ICBM or strategic bomber although the original idea also foresaw in delivering the tsunami creating nuclear device via a submarine.

Bullshit!!!!!!!!

Total piece of trash fake news article.

A. It does not exist yet.
B. The author is guessing at an enemy, when in fact there are no real enemies on earth.

Next they headline will be "Fukashima, the Russians did it!" Question is the US or NATO developing similar weapons.

One more thing the 300 ft wave,  Kilgore: "Ivan does not surf!"

I believe Ford have already gone down that route - "The Nucleon" really WAS going to be "The next great thing" in family transport - the "compact reactor" was supposed to last for 5000 miles, so rather than an oil change, you'd have a complete power-plant change. Very stylish car design, pity about the impracticality.

More doom porn from ZH. If you are even slightly interested in why Putin developed his shiny new hperbollock sky rockets, try watching his speech when he announced them.

Attn President Putin
Subj: Russian 300ft Tsunami by Drone

Hi Vlad - yeah me again... sorry to bother you - I know you're a busy man - but here's the thing with that underwater-drone thing: THINK "Chesapeake Bay"!

A 300ft Tsunami? Fuggedaboutit! That sucker's gonna be !!!600ft!!! by the time its been channeled-up to the District Of Criminals... just sitting there like a bulls-eye... even those ZOG swamp-dwellers aint gonna be able to crawl out from under 60ft of sludge in a hurry - and when they DO surface, they'll wish they hadn't - 'cause there's gonna be a "warm reception" waiting for them ;)))

YOu're Welcome.. any time ;) MEGA-tia ;))
