Russia claimed it will be arming its new Belgorod nuclear-powered guided missile submarines with Poseidon nuclear torpedo drones that are designed to cause tsunamis and devastate entire continents.
Russia describes the Poseidon as the deadliest nuclear weapon ever created, and said six of the devices will be loaded aboard their 09852 sub Belgorod. Both the sub and the warheads are scheduled to enter service by 2020.
The remote controlled and detonated nuclear drone torpedo boasts a 100 to 200 megaton nuclear warhead. Nuke experts suggest that six of the torpedoes could wipe out nearly all life on Earth. The tsunami created by the underwater detonation of one could destroy an entire coastal nation’s population. The weapon could also be used to target deep undersea cables to significantly disrupt international communication and infrastructure.
