A foreign expert spoke about a Russian “matryoshka submarine” with nuclear torpedoes

“There are no analogues of such weapons in the world yet.”

One of the world's largest submarines, the K-329 Belgorod; returned after the naval tests that began on June 25. They are the final stage in the construction of naval vessels. No wonder Western analysts were interested in the appearance of the K-329 equipped with Poseidon nuclear submarines.

He “ Belgorod & # 39; & # 39; it does not have one, but two combat missions at once, said the American magazine National Interest. The first is sabotage. The K-329 is so huge that another submarine has been placed in it, which is also working on a nuclear reactor. In addition to combat, this submarine is capable of diving to great depths, which will allow it, for example, to eliminate communication cables running along the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

The concerns of foreign analysts are easy to understand & ndash; almost 99% of all international information traffic is carried out by submarine wires. One can only imagine how a “ Russian underwater nesting doll & # 39; & # 39; capable of damaging the alleged enemy's Internet communications during hostilities.

Due to these differences, the range of targets that Poseidon capable of strike: from aircraft carriers to coastal cities. There are still no analogues of such torpedoes in the world. & # 39; & # 39;

Belgorod began construction in 1992, but two years later the project was stopped as useless. Only after the tragic death of the Kursk submarine on August 12, 2000, it was decided to continue construction of K-329. The work has been carried out on a long-term and intensive basis due to funding problems: & nbsp;

Belgorod; & mdash; & nbsp; It is one of the largest submarines in the world with a displacement of 30,000 tons, the second behind the Russian submarine Akula. It was not until 2019 that the K-329 was first launched on the market, when it decided to place Onyx and Zircon missiles in its place. or & # 39; Caliber & # 39; the latest Poseidon unmanned underwater vehicles.

President Putin spoke for the first time about & nbsp; unmanned underwater vehicles with a nuclear power plant in March 2018. Some experts call it a doomsday torpedo capable of inflicting terrible damage on the enemy even after a surprise strike destroys all Russian ground-based nuclear missiles. A deep nuclear explosion could cause a tsunami that will hit any city with more than a million inhabitants.
