On July 8, Russia officially delivered to its Navy the “Belgorod” nuclear submarine, which has a displacement of 30,000 tonnes and is also the world’s largest submarine.
The official Russian explanation is that this is a scientific research submarine that can conduct scientific investigations and rescue operations in “remote waters.”
Western mainstream media obviously do not believe the “scientific research” in Russia’s mouth. This submarine’s capacity expansion primarily aims to carry six huge “Poseidon” nuclear torpedoes.
“Poseidon” is the most powerful sea god in Greek mythology. You can know from the name that this weapon’s power is extraordinary.
As per the Russian military, the “Poseidon” has a range of up to 10,000 kilometers and a deep dive of up to 1,000 meters. With a speed of up to 185 kilometers per hour, there is currently no effective means of intercepting this torpedo.
The explosion of this nuclear torpedo in the deep sea on the other side’s coast will generate a giant tsunami, which can cause devastating blows to the other side’s coastal cities. The presenter of Russian state television even claimed that one could destroy the whole of Britain.
Just imagine such a nuclear submarine with 6 “Poseidon” nuclear torpedoes,
