USA: Russian "Borey" will make America uninhabited

Washington has been discussing the issue of nuclear confrontation with Moscow for decades, but it should be noted that now this is generally a favorite topic among Russophobes in the West. Therefore, it is not surprising that the American analytical publication on militarypolitical The National Interest (NI, National Interest) decided to sober up the overly aggressive and warlike public a bit.




According to the publication, even if the United States and its allies manage to neutralize (destroy) “at the first strike” Russia's air and ground-based nuclear deterrence forces (SNF), they will not be able to do anything with Russian nuclear submarines armed with missiles with nuclear warheads. For example, according to the publication, the submarines of project 955 Borey with SLBM R-30 Bulava can “make America uninhabited,” even without Moscow using all other means.

Each of the sixteen R-30 Bulava missiles in a submarine, as a rule, carries six nuclear warheads with a capacity of 150 kilotons, which are separated and destroy individual targets. This means that "one Borey" is capable of bringing down 5,8 nuclear warheads, which are 72 times more destructive than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, to cities and military bases located at a distance of more than 10 thousand miles.

- the text of the article says.

The publication clarifies that during the Cold War, Soviet submarines were indeed noisier than Western ones, therefore, more vulnerable. However, in the late 80s of the twentieth century, the USSR "imported" Technology and overcame this lag. After that, the Soviet submarines caught up in stealth (noiselessness) with the western ones. For example, the submarines of the Pike-B project were comparable to the “US Navy” workhorses of the Los Angeles class. Now, as the publication emphasizes, the Russian Borei submarines are quieter and quieter than the American Ohio class submarines.


It should be recalled that at the end of August 2019, the Tula and Yuri Dolgoruky submarines launched the Sineva and Bulava SLBMs from the polar region of the Arctic Ocean and the Barents Sea. Combat units (mock-ups) successfully hit training targets at the Chizh training grounds in the Arkhangelsk Region and the Kura in Kamchatka. And American military experts are well aware of this, so they are unlikely to doubt the performance of Russian weapons. By the way, Russian shipbuilders promised in 2020 to transfer six more submarines to the Russian Navy, therefore, Russia's security will become even higher.

    National Interest - the estate of Pushkov, he is not quoted by amers as I know

    At VO all the time they write that the plan for the introduction of our submarines is greatly disrupted. And they will not lie ...

          I looked.
          About the same as topcor.
          Only attendance is a little more.

            I do not agree.
            There is stupid news, but the level of articles, and, especially, part of the comments is noticeably more professional.
            Although the similarity is noticeable.

              You see, even absolute nonsense can be wrapped up in words so beautifully that it will seem like a "sensible article" to many.
              A professional writer in some other field, this is a rare case. Unique. Gold is gold.
              But mostly articles are written by journalists and historians. In the topics they openly swim. And they don’t know the material.
              It also happens that non-professional losers write articles (who consider themselves cool professionals).
              Therefore, competent material cannot be found in the afternoon with fire. He is literally worth his weight in gold. And those who are able to write it do not publish it in such "editions" as VO and the like.

              As for the comments I will not say for sure, I looked through it obliquely. But it seemed to me that they were just a little more. But basically they are the same.

              Professionalism and the Internet are generally rarely intersecting things. Therefore, do not take articles and comments from the Internet too seriously. High-quality analytical material there except traces. But useful documents and numbers are often found. This is why the Internet is valuable.

                I’m interested in the comments of techies there, they often post professional information that they themselves should look for a long time.
                Example:

                ... cosmos ratio. speed and hypersound, T heating from friction depending on speed and altitude, the dependence of the radar power on electric power, well, just a planned and real schedule for putting ships into operation ....

                It happens there often. Never here.

                  In this I agree with you. I use it myself, sinful. winked
                  Sometimes you find a document not on the archive website, where it should be, but somewhere on the forum. I can even say that this happens quite often.

      This is written for the Russians, or rather the cheers of the patriots living in Russia, the Americans have not even heard of such a publication.

        But ordinary Americans are not supposed to know this.

        Wiki:

        The publication was founded in 1985 by the famous expert Irving Kristol. The publication has a wide expert council led by Henry Kissinger and differs from other publications not only in checking the quality of materials, but also in controlling the expert’s experience in the topics covered in accordance with documents on his biography.
        On military topics, political experts are often prominent experts close to the US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, such as Robert Tucker and Graham Fuller, who are also politicians from the US Republican Party.

        Where are the Pushkovs?

    Are the Americans stupid or what (as M. Zadornov claimed)? Or do they not know arithmetic? 16 missiles with 6 warheads will be 96 atomic "mushrooms", but why did they only count 72 ???

    Everything would be fine, but Russia has a catastrophic lack of funds. And it is not clear how to convince the authorities to stop littering with money on all kinds of cruisers, destroyers, frigates. And also on various kinds of Soviet floating (yet) buckets with nuts (rusty). And concentrate efforts on the submarine and mosquito fleet to ensure their functioning.

    ... and again a reference to the "very" American National Interest, where the main one is Simes, who Solovyov has an honorary expert ... like Yasha Kedmi (Kazakov), the great Israeli pensioner "expert" who earns ice cream for his grandchildren at the expense of the Russian taxpayer with the filing of Solovyov.

      Probably Americans and Europeans are fools.

      Wiki:

      There is no data on the audience size from the publication itself, but site analysis systems estimate NationalIntrest.org traffic from 2,5 to 8 million people per month and about 20 links to publications per month.
      National Interest has an international readership, which enjoys authority, so excerpts from its articles are published by The New York Times, The Financial Times, The Australian, The International Herald Tribune, etc.

      And you have this "pocket Solovyov edition", one of the founders of which was "agent of the Russian Federation" G. Kissinger.

        Anyone who is not too lazy to type "Dmitry Simes" in Wiki will be able to draw a conclusion about the information from his magazine. BUT, yes, from the Soloviev campaign, he is the least overexposed.
