“This is a signal to the West”: the French press drew attention to the Russian submarine Borey with the symbol Z

Western observers spotted a Russian Borey-A-class Knyaz Vladimir submarine equipped with ballistic missiles, with the letter Z on board. This was reported by the French edition of Naval News, citing a number of sources.

The submarine, which was in Severomorsk in July, was “found” on Russian social networks. A Borey-A class submarine also patrols the Barents Sea. Naval analysts believe that we are talking about the same submarine - Knyaz Vladimir (K-549), and it is on her board that the letter Z is visible.

This submarine is usually equipped with 16 R-30 Bulava ballistic missiles. They are roughly comparable in performance to US and British Navy Trident II missiles, each with a range of over 8000 km. They carry 6 to 10 multiple warheads with multiple independent warheads.

According to Naval News, such a submarine is a kind of signal to the West about the involvement of the Russian submarine fleet in the special operation and "Putin's hint" about the nuclear threat of NATO, which is assisting the Kyiv regime. At the same time, no other Russian Z-marked submarines have yet been sighted.

    This suggests that the demilitarization and denazification of Geyropa is coming soon! Of course those who survive the winter!

    Anyone who is ready to use nuclear weapons does not need to hint about this enemy. And yet so carefully.
    If this is really a hint, and not a stupid "initiative on the ground", then its "dosed" nature directly indicates the opposite. Since the enemy is able to "read" everything correctly, I think that this "hint" is intended exclusively for the internal audience.
    The one who does, does not say. The one who threatens - speaks directly

    70 km from Kherson to Nikolaev. From Nikolaev to Odessa 90. From Odessa to KyshenEY 70. Airborne assault in Nikolaev defeat. Under Bashtanka, too, no luck. In Nikolaev there are two bridges Varvarovsky and Ingulsky through the first one road to Odessa, through the second to Kyiv 700 versts. Such is the alignment in Nikolaev, four half-abandoned huge enterprises used to make ships. And the cruiser Ukraine is of the same type with Moscow, as well as the plants mentioned above.
