"The United States will no longer be safe": Western media about the final stage of the Poseidon tests


The Russian strategic underwater unmanned vehicle Poseidon is in the final stages of testing. Russia's Defense Ministry reported this on Navy Day last month. The experts of the British newspaper The Sun argue about what such weapons can threaten the United States.


Tests of the Belgorod submarine, which will carry and launch the drones, are nearing completion. Poseidon will be ready for a test launch very soon. According to Russian media reports, it can reach speeds of up to 85 km / h, has a range of up to 10 km and carries a warhead with a capacity of tens of megatons.

The publication draws attention to the words of the reserve captain of the Russian Navy, Konstantin Sivkov, who recently said that the detonation of the warhead of Poseidon could cause a tectonic rupture and completely destroy the North American continent.

USA realizes they will no longer be safe

- Sivkov said after Washington called on Moscow to stop the development of this "Doomsday weapon".

The submarine "Belgorod" is capable of carrying up to six nuclear drones that can destroy coastal cities by exploding near the coastline and creating huge radioactive tsunamis, pumping up The Sun. Speaking on July 26 in St. Petersburg, Putin bragged about the Poseidon and Russia's new hypersonic missile:

Using advanced of technologies, which has no equal in the world, including hypersonic strike systems and underwater drones, will increase the combat capabilities of the Russian fleet

- noted the President of Russia.

Back in 2018, Putin raved about the intimidating Poseidon, calling it "truly fantastic." He stated that these drones are quiet, highly maneuverable and have almost no vulnerabilities. There is no weapon in the world right now that could withstand Poseidon.

    If NATO did not expand to the East, as promised, but lied, then the Poseidons would not be needed. And now they have no faith. Therefore, responses are being developed. There is always other scrap against NATO scrap ...

    For the first time such a small speed of Poseidon was named. I wonder if this is a bug?
    Previously, the figure was always about 200 km / h.
    Most likely, they were confused and 85 km / h belongs to the Belgorod subway itself.

      It is unlikely that 200 km / h has anything to do with reality ...

        You should not think so. The torpedo Squall has a speed of 300 km / h. The movement takes place not in water, but in a layer of bubbles. And the principle of movement is reactive, without screws.
        And Poseidon is about the same, only the source of energy is nuclear.
        And you shouldn't pay attention to the screws in Putin's cartoon. As well as the promise to use the engine (and propulsion unit) of the Petrel on airplanes, including civilian ones. There is a lot - a smoke screen.
        Engines for both Poseidon and Petrel are disposable. Restarting is impossible. And at the same time, constructively - extremely simple. IMHO.

          "Shkval" runs on solid fuel, which reacts with water to create the required thrust. Now imagine a nuclear reactor. The working body is water. What will create thrust? Pressurized steam? Do you understand how many bubbles will be on the surface of the water? Yes, such a trail from space will be visible, which will instantly give out the location of Poseidon.

          And you shouldn't pay attention to the screws in Putin's cartoon.

          You propose not to pay attention to "Putin's cartoons", to the notorious screenshot of the Ministry of Defense, where the scheme of "Status-6" was shown (which, by the way, speaks of the presence of a classical turbine and a screw propeller), but to take your word for it? Really? There are also a number of expert assessments where nothing is said about "jet thrust".

          Engines for both Poseidon and Petrel are disposable.

          Engines of "Poseidon" and "Petrel" are different in the type of action. Why compare them at all?

            The engines of the Petrel and Poseidon are exactly the same in principle. This is Putin said. Direct-flow jet. Only the working fluid is different: air and water / steam.

            Do you understand how many bubbles will be on the surface of the water?

            Understand. There will be none. From a depth of 1 m (and even 000 m) they simply will not rise, they will turn into water.

            Do you seriously believe in such leaks? Rather, in their accident?

              Can I quote Putin on this matter?

              Thin streams of air rise from depths of 200-300 meters from underwater volcanoes ... belay

              Do you seriously believe in such leaks?

              As for me, it is better to believe in leaks than in some kind of fiction.

                Don't confuse warm with purple.
                From volcanoes - not air, but gas (carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, etc.). And from Poseidon - steam, H2O. There is no gas. The steam will turn back into water after 10 meters. Talk to your high school physics teacher. It is desirable that she studied under the USSR.
                I, under the USSR, worked for a long time at defense enterprises. Therefore, I can believe that information can be stolen / bought, but I do not believe that it can so stupidly get into the media from the president's office. And nobody was shot. laughing .
                As for the quote - Putin said this a few days later, when they showed his visit, either to the plant, or to the KB. This video still needs to be found. If I find it, I will drop it.
                This is not a fiction, but an analysis of the available information. Here on VO I wrote a comment so as not to strain again.

                Nonsense is all about a turbojet. We must listen carefully to what Putin is saying. He is in 2018. said that Petrel and Poseidon (names, of course, came later) have the same engines. It is clear that the screws in Poseidon in the cartoon - it's just a cover, a smoke curtain. At the declared speed, there can be no screws in the water.
                Therefore, the engine is straight-through. The design is simple, like a rake, molded from plutonium-containing heat-resistant ceramics, Rosatom is ahead of the rest in this topic. The core consists of two parts of the pre-critical mass. At the start, the front slides into the back, a critical mass is reached and the process starts. All air ducts are molded directly in the ceramic. The loss of the core is minuscule, because it is made of ceramics. The front part of the front half is better made of the same ceramics, but without plutonium, it is for the passage of cold air.
                The engine, of course, is a one-time one, Putin’s words about using it on civilian planes are a cover. A year and a half has passed and nothing is heard.
                In Poseidon, the principle is the same, only seawater is heated until vaporization.
                In my opinion, the latest missile accident is testing a variant of Petrel from a launcher, with an accelerator. There was an abnormal connection of the two engine parts before starting. A chain reaction began, the accelerator in the engine exploded, the engine crashed into small fragments, and the reaction stopped (the critical mass disappeared). Hence the initial r / a infection and its absence afterwards.
                Therefore, you can make a lot of such rockets, the launch of the "reactor" is a matter of seconds (or, rather, fractions of seconds).
                If 3 - 4 such missiles simultaneously fly up to the object’s air defense zone from different sides, the object will help if only the Lord.
                Of course, these are all fabrications of a sofa analyst with education and work experience "design and production of electronic equipment". But explain where I am wrong?

                      You are more right than ever, so the West does not know every time when to put on diapers (Putin is not joking), and when to change them (Putin is silent), and when you can relax and have fun (Putin smiles). Putin is an officer of the Foreign Intelligence Service, and there are no former officers, and he makes excellent use of all his acquired knowledge both during his studies and in the service. True, the majority here is annoying when they themselves do not understand its logic, but this is their problem.

        Why then? Using the effect of cavitation, "Shkval" accelerates to 350 kilometers per hour.

    Satan, Mace, and other missiles are so neglected by Western media that only Poseidon deprives them of their safety ???
    Hardly.

    Although

    the destruction of the warhead of the Poseidon could ... ... completely destroy the North American continent.

    - This is a very changeable override.
