Russian submarine capable of destroying New York is the most secret project, US said
WASHINGTON, (BM) – The nuclear submarine Khabarovsk of project 09851 is the most secret in the Russian fleet. She will be able to carry six strategic Poseidon torpedoes.
This is stated in the material of the American magazine Forbes, reports BulgarianMilitary.com.
The publication notes that there is very little public information regarding this submarine. It is also known that the submarine will be able to carry six Poseidon nuclear torpedoes.
“It could be the defining submarine of 2020,” the article says, and also notes that the submarine should be launched this month.
In addition, the magazine separately identifies the Belgorod submarine of project 09852, the longest submarine in the history of mankind, which also carries the Poseidon strategic weapon.
The material notes that Belgorod will serve as a ship for the deep-sea nuclear submarine Losharik, capable of diving to a depth of 6 thousand meters. The author of the article fears that in this way Russia will be able to connect to cables running along the ocean floor.
According to the analyst, Poseidon is unique. This weapon is an intercontinental autonomous torpedo.
“It is twice as large as a typical ballistic missile, has an almost unlimited range and is armed with a nuclear warhead,” the author states.
Earlier, military analyst Alexander Mikhailov said that Poseidon submarines are capable of “nullifying” the coastal defense of any enemy, including the United States.
In turn, analyst Jacob Kedmi noted that Poseidon is capable of destroying New York, and the tsunami or earthquakes caused by it will cause even greater damage to the target.
