Russia is building a nuclear submarine drone “Poseidon” as a weapon of retribution for “the collapse of NATO.” This writes The Business Insider, citing a statement by the senior analyst Australian strategic policy Institute Malcolm Davis (Malcolm Davis).
According to him, “Poseidon” capable of destroying a whole continent, and can also cause a tsunami, spreading radiation to “hundreds of thousands of kilometers”, making it uninhabitable for a few decades. Davis is confident that the drone is necessary to convince the US to abandon the protection of NATO in case of aggression by Russia.
“Even in the midst of the cold war no one took seriously the creation of such weapons “judgment day,” the article says. — “Poseidon” will significantly increase the risks for NATO in the event of a response to the Russian threat.” Thus, in the Russian attack on one member of NATO Alliance would be destroyed, as other members will refuse to come to the rescue, assessing the risks.
The factory sea trials of a Russian nuclear submarine, unmanned “Poseidon” will begin in the summer of 2019. Within these tests, “Poseidon” will vystrelivaet in the sea with a coastal stand, since “Sevmash” has not yet completed the construction of a media drone (nuclear submarine special purpose project 09851 “Khabarovsk”).
