Americans predicted equipping Poseidon with a cobalt bomb


Russia will be able to destroy all cities on the US coast, using its "doomsday torpedoes" in case of war. Brent Eastwood, a columnist for the American edition of 19Fortyfive, wrote about this, talking about the Russian unmanned underwater vehicle Poseidon 2M39, equipped with a nuclear power plant.


The most dangerous drone developed for the Russian military in the coming years is the Poseidon, which is planned to be put into service in 2027. Despite the fact that the weapon has been designed for only a few years, it is already terrifying.

- notes the author.

The American said that the specified device will be launched from a carrier submarine, but the installed power plant allows you not to fear for fuel consumption, range and sailing time, making its radius of action unlimited. Thus, Russian submariners will be able to release Poseidons wherever and whenever they want.

In addition, the device will carry a nuclear warhead. The author predicted that Poseidon could even be equipped with a "cobalt bomb", i.e. radioactive weapons. He clarified that the "cobalt bomb" is a theoretical modification of a nuclear weapon, which gives a strong radioactive contamination even with a small explosion, in which the last shell contains not uranium-238, but cobalt.

The analyst pointed out that the Poseidon underwater would be extremely difficult to detect. Poseidon-class vehicles will have no problem crossing the North Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean, despite the anti-submarine defense. At the same time, the damage to the United States in the event of their use will be colossal.

  1. And why not use the Poseidons against other handsome men of the West - Canadians, European Unionists, Naglo-Saxons, Japanese samurai, Australoids and other scum, like New Zealanders?

    Insidious Putin can equip Poseidons even with a rubber bonbai!

    The Yusovites are getting the money out of the Congress correctly.

    Only everything has calmed down, there is an article.
    Already about the cobolt bomb, although incredible stupidity.

    About kernels-KR also calmed down, there are no new cartoons, we must also wait)))

    Dozens of Poseidons need to be placed in secret launchers hidden along the coast of Sakhalin and Kamchatka in the Pacific Fleet and in the depths of the fjords of the Kola Peninsula in the Northern Fleet.
    On a signal from the command center of the fleet, or from the Perimeter system, all Poseidons will launch across the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean to the shores of the United States, Britain, Canada and their allies.
    This will make it possible to compensate for the absence of safe patrol zones by our "strategists" off the coast of the United States.

    This is you from your bewilderment. A nuclear charge does not stay on the carrier for a long time. Only for the period of combat duty. The rest of the time, it is removed and stored in special conditions. The filling is still warming up, the reactions are going on, slowly, but the decay is going on. Gases, fission fragments, heating are released, which can disable the mechanism and control. Drainage of secretions, their safe disposal, (products are radioactive), cooling, systematic control of the integrity of control systems. Preparation, installation, in droves, on dozens and hundreds of carriers (not only Poseidons, but also on the rest, after all, we will not beat with these mallets alone, if that), there is no way to hide. Stirlitz are both with us and with them. These movements themselves are already a declaration of war. So, it will not be possible to accumulate any nuclear weapons imperceptibly at the starting positions. Do you think the Americans are in vain making plans to strike the first blow with conventional weapons - thousands of Tomahawks, for example? This crap is ALWAYS ready to use.

      So the launchers are under water, on our territory, so organizing heat removal through a heat exchanger in the sea does not present any problem ...

    This is what he wrote when he was drinking. That in the morning I woke up and read and was horrified, what would happen if it was.
