Production of the first batch of Poseidon nuclear torpedoes.
The first batch of Poseidon guided nuclear torpedoes for the Russian strategic nuclear submarine Belgorod was manufactured.
This was reported by a source close to the Russian Ministry of Defense, and said that the submarine will receive these torpedoes in the near future, adding that the tests of the main parts of the torpedo have been completed.
It is noteworthy that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in 2019 announced the successful testing of the Poseidon nuclear guided torpedo and indicated that the Belgorod submarine with these torpedoes was launched into the sea. His final exams are over.
The Italian newspaper La Repubblica recently reported on NATO’s concerns about the possibility of launching this dangerous torpedo from the Belgorod submarine.
At the same time, the Russian newspaper Izvestia reported that the Russian submarine Khabarovsk can also carry Poseidon torpedoes. The submarine is expected to go to sea in 2023.
It is noteworthy that NATO called this torpedo a “doomsday weapon” for its ability to raise a radiological hurricane near any beach.
The newspaper La Repubblica reported that NATO intelligence has circulated among the member countries of the alliance a report on the movements of the Belgorod submarine, which can launch the Poseidon torpedo, with the aim of testing it anytime and anywhere.
It is worth noting that one submarine can be equipped with 6 guided nuclear torpedoes of this type. The task of the torpedo is to destroy the naval bases of a potential enemy.
It is noteworthy that the Poseidon torpedo can move indefinitely, as well as maneuver at high speed, which does not allow enemy submarines to detect and intercept it. While Poseidon can detect and destroy enemy submarines. Several submarines equipped with Poseidon torpedoes can control the entire Arctic Ocean to prevent any submarine from entering it.
