The third Poseidon carrier will appear in Russia


The third carrier of the unmanned Poseidons of the special purpose nuclear submarine Ulyanovsk will be handed over to the Navy in 2027. Unlike its predecessors, the submarine will enter service along with weapons, which will have completed state tests by that time. Reported by TASS citing a source in the shipbuilding industry.


The Ulyanovsk nuclear submarine will be commissioned for the first time as a single complex along with weapons

- said the interlocutor of the agency.

The construction of the Ulyanovsk nuclear submarine started at the Sevmash shipyard in 2017. In terms of the main parameters, the submarine will be similar to its predecessor, the Khabarovsk nuclear submarine. However, more modern systems will be implemented in the new submarine.

According to a TASS source, the construction of the submarine hull will be completed in the near future and its hydraulic tests will begin.

Recall that the first carrier of nuclear drones, the Belgorod nuclear submarine, was launched in 2019. In the summer of 2020, tests of the submarine began. The transfer of the project 09852 submarine to the IMF is scheduled for this year.

In turn, the Poseidon unmanned torpedo, which is capable of covering intercontinental distances and moving at speeds of up to 185 km / h at a depth of 1000 m, should be put into service no later than 2027. It is assumed that a promising device will be able to carry a nuclear or conventional warhead and be used to destroy naval bases, as well as other coastal infrastructure of a potential enemy.

    Not "convection", but "conventional" warhead. Convection is the movement of heated air. Well, or "Poseidon" will carry a batch of sectional heating radiators.

      It's funny, four especially gifted miners still believe that warheads are "convectional".

        When the text is typed, such inspiration to some to express their wisdom ... Regarding the "Posseidon", with their such driving characteristics, having improved somewhat, even the nuclear submarine is not needed as an extra link. It is enough to build hidden parking places in the Kuril Islands or in the Arctic without noise (underground, for example, more modest than Balaklava) and release them when it is necessary. use them for direct purposes, like strategists with "Maces" and other equipment ...

          Before publication, the text must be proofread by the author himself, and then also by the editor. If there are typos in the published text - either of these two or both are either working carelessly or do not see the difference between "convection" and "conventional" - and this already speaks of the competence of the authors who have undertaken to write about weapons.

    A third Poseidon carrier will appear in Russia - no doubt, but after the first two appear.

      Surely nothing? Deny reality?

    Russia The greatest sea dezhava!
    Golovnaya - "Severodvinsk" was founded in 1993, and the terms of reference for it were approved even earlier. It was put into service in 2014,
    The construction of the Ulyanovsk nuclear submarine started at the Sevmash shipyard in 2017, therefore + 21 types, the commissioning period is 2038.
    In turn, the Poseidon unmanned torpedo, which is capable of covering intercontinental distances and moving at speeds of up to 185 km / h at a depth of 1000 m, should be put into service no later than 2027 (obviously, we will torpedo America).
    By this time, maybe the United States, God forbid, will sink itself?

  6. Gentlemen! I am overshadowed by a brilliant idea: it is necessary to overlay America with atomic mines. And as soon as the hour of the lawsuit comes, we will blow everything up at once!

      Exactly, just add 500 poseidons, zircons, 1000 daggers and flood 100 armatures and 2000 SU-1000s per 57 km. As the mines explode and the SU will fly out of the water and armata along the bottom !!!!!
