In the US, recognized the temporary inability to respond to a new challenge to Russia

34
The status-6 underwater swimming apparatus developed in the Russian Federation with a nuclear warhead with a capacity of up to 100 megatons is a challenge that the US Navy does not have yet to answer. Lenta.ru report Statement by Senior Researcher at the Heritage Foundation’s Institute for Defense Programs, retired US Navy officer Thomas Calender.




Taking into account the maximum speed of the “Status-6” more than 29 meters per second and a depth of more than a kilometer, this is a difficult goal to destroy with the help of the current weapons,
Callender told The National Interest.

According to him, the United States has “Mark-48 torpedoes, which, with a maximum range of 55 kilometers and an immersion depth of 800 meters, are not designed to destroy the“ Status-6 ””.

This means that if the Russian torpedo were located near its maximum depth, the main weapon of the Navy would not be able to reach and eliminate it,
stated the expert.

He added that the United States "for several years, provided the Pentagon is provided with the necessary funding, can find a way to eliminate the" Status-6 "." Callender called the P-8 Poseidon and P-3 Orion naval patrol aircraft the most preferred vehicle for this.

As the expert explained, the nuclear torpedo can be launched from a larger submarine heading from the Barents Sea, “it is intended to destroy the US East Coast.”

Torpedoes, as it approaches and crosses the continental shelf, which is becoming smaller, easier to destroy with the help of existing weapons,
he said.

According to Callender, the Pentagon will develop such systems to counter the Russian threat.

Recall that in November 2015, slides from the presentation of Status-6, shown at a meeting with Vladimir Putin, got into the plots of Russian TV channels. From the presentation followed that we are talking about weapons of mass destruction, intended, inter alia, to "defeat the objects of the enemy's economy." Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov in connection with this leak promised to take "preventive measures to prevent this from happening again."

Earlier it was reported that the current prototype of the “Status” will be ready in 2019 year, and in the beginning of 2020-s it should be adopted.

    In my opinion, ours launched an explicit duck with this “Status-6” (they don’t show such documents in the news on TV, there are no such punctures, and even a “document” is almost like a poster, so that everyone could see), and the Americans - In order to maintain their hysteria about the insidious Russians, they picked up this duck and pretend they believed it, intelligence from them, supposedly in the know of the status of testing the “Status-6” submarines, is another good reason to accuse Russia of aggressive intentions.

      Yes, and let their heads hurt! They still do not know what to do with the perimeter, here is status-6.
      By the way, ours came up with a rocket launcher on the Railway Platform precisely thanks to the duck of the Americans! The latter launched what they have ... And ours took and did!

                It may well be that Status-6 is the pure truth. Why? A simple calculation of costs ... in order to develop such a deep-sea drone torpedo, you need relatively few investments, compared with the development of a new generation of ICBMs. At the same time, the ICBM must pass the adversary’s missile defense system, fly at exorbitant distances and, at the same time, often be in a stationary position in the mine, which the adversary will be aware of. But you cannot track such torpedo drones aboard a nuclear submarine, and you cannot build a missile defense system at a depth of one kilometer; moreover, you will not detect such a robot. And as a result, Status-6 is the same revolver at the temple of the adversary turns out to be (a certain analogue of the Perimeter). At the same time, Status-6 is also good because it is ineffective against Russia, and highly effective both against the United States, and against Europe and China with India.

      Well, let’s say so, Russia is not coming out of the "aggressors" from the "aggressors", and they are in a state of hysteria around the clock. It’s just that the Pentagon has the opportunity to knock out more babos from Congress.

I take off my hat to our intelligence, since the times of "Shtirlitsa", this is the most competent, uncomplicated, and far-reaching "fake". intelligence, give "five" !!! let them drive the Saxons ....

      They weren’t bought, but we are on their SDI ... But there is a huge difference between SDI and Status-6 ... SDI project is prohibitively expensive and in fact not even possible now, but Status-6 is a budget project implemented, and in a fairly quick time.

    The United States “within a few years, subject to the necessary funding from the Pentagon, is able to find a way to eliminate the Status-6.”
    And the casket just opens - the possibility of additional financing.

    Even if this is disinformation on our part, it would not be bad to create something like that.
    Noah, I am inclined to believe that there is all the same. Because the country which is already building submarines and nuclear weapons is quite capable of it. There is no fiction here.
    And also to start disu that we have already surrounded the US coast with nuclear mines, and they calmly lie at the bottom and wait in the wings. As soon as you rock it, you will need a volcano.

      Take a look at the Husky submarine project, namely, the presence of deep-sea drones on board, as well as the construction, and more precisely, the modernization of the Khabarovsk and Belgorod nuclear submarines. At the same time, we are armed, if sclerosis doesn’t fail me, there are as many as 8 special nuclear submarines.

        Hello Andrey hi
        So far, that is just fortunetelling. I hope that everything is the way you say. With such "partners" you don’t need enemies either. But the fact that you need to catch up on them all the time is a fact.

    And there will not be the next 30 years ... you know you can’t build a missile defense system at a depth of a kilometer.

    And if not a duck? There are such cunning submarines that are now being completed with us and about which complete silence is Belgorod and Khabarovsk.
    At the same time, it’s already right now that there will be deep-sea drones on the same Husky ... why don’t you Status-6 then?

    The joke itself is that the US coast itself may not be attacked, but, for example, the Atlantic fault zone, or Pacific San Andreas. And then these patrol planes will simply have nowhere to return - they can fly to their choice - to the camp of the guri, or to us in a warm captivity if there is enough kerosene.

    Even the AUG cannot move away from the Status, moving at full speed. And this means that when equipping the Status with suitable torpedoes, for example, a Flurry, the AUG will be guaranteed to be destroyed: the radius of the nuclear Flurry’s destruction is greater than the distance that the AUG can travel during the attack. It is possible not nuclear, but then they need a few. And after the attack, the Status can simply go into the depths and nothing will reach it ...
