Supertorpedo "Poseidon" in the near future will be ready for combat use


The first ammunition of nuclear supertorpedoes "Poseidon" was made for the nuclear submarine "Belgorod". This is reported TASS with reference to its own source close to the military department, there is no official confirmation of the information yet.


According to the interlocutor of the publication, tests of the main components of the ammunition, including a nuclear power plant, have already been successfully completed.

The first Poseidons ammunition has been manufactured, the Belgorod submarine will receive them in the near future

- the agency quotes the words of the informant.

The crew of the Belgorod nuclear submarine last week completed a series of throw tests of the Poseidon torpedo model, which is also called the “doomsday weapon”. The purpose of the tests was to test the operation of the Poseidon launch system.

According to Western nuclear experts, the Posedon super-torpedo, equipped with a nuclear warhead, is capable of producing a "radioactive tsunami." Experts compare the effect of its launch with the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.


Earlier it was reported that Western analysts came to the conclusion: for some time the Russian Federation has been implementing an alternative “Plan B” for Ukraine, the prolonged action of which the West may not be able to withstand. Moscow has taken a wait-and-see attitude, not making sudden movements and watching the fussing opponents, experts say. The Kremlin, in their opinion, is sure that the resources will last for many years, but the stocks of Western military arsenals will be seriously reduced, however, as well as economy.

    The first batch of Poseidons is ready to be loaded onto the Belgorod submarine.
    True, the speed of torpedoes is slightly higher than 200 km per hour, but the warheads are 2 megatons in total. The maximum yield of a warhead or warheads can be up to 50 megatons. Perhaps these have already been manufactured and put on a number of torpedoes. Let the enemy guess.

    Alas. The video is another lie, IMHO. And the announcer to match ..
    All aspects of Poseidon were discussed on VO and specialized sites. And there were discussed its pros and cons ...

    All is cool. Of course, we are proud of the super torpedo. BUT in the rest - is there at least something imported ??? Judging by the aircraft - completely imports. Aircraft - piece from the remnants of imports. Video-photo-goods - import. Phones - import. Conditioning systems - import, auto production - import. Seeds are almost all imports. Computers, components and programs are imported ... but in military terms - la - there are no analogues. Only accessories import.

    Judging by the reports, this torpedo is still working and working. The main thing is to make a nuclear engine, and this is not easy and not yet. Well, Belgorod - it will always come in handy for installing Skif missiles. This is secretive and also not much of a gift.

    "Belgorod" did not go to sea with "Poseidon" since October 4, 2022?
