US intelligence believes that Russia is allegedly preparing tests of the Poseidon maritime drone

The Russian military may test a "nuclear torpedo", referring to the Poseidon naval drone, US intelligence notes the preparation of surface ships and submarines for testing. This is reported by CNN with reference to a senior US official who wished to remain anonymous.

American intelligence, according to this same official, has recently observed the preparation of Russian warships for a "possible" test of a "nuclear torpedo". This conclusion was made after the Russian special-purpose nuclear submarine "Belgorod" was seen in the group, which is the carrier of sea drones "Poseidon". However, a detachment of ships, together with the submarine, returned to their places of deployment without having carried out any tests.



According to the Americans, "technical difficulties" supposedly caused by Western sanctions imposed against Russia could prevent the Russians from testing the "nuclear torpedo". Russia is said to be currently unable to produce high-tech weapons, which is allegedly confirmed by the military actions in Ukraine, which were invaded by "poorly trained and under-equipped" Russian troops.

Now in Washington they fear that Russia will soon try to test the Poseidon again, but they hope that this may be prevented by the ice covering the sea ranges of the Northern fleet. At the same time, the Americans do not believe that the tests will be associated with a real nuclear explosion.

The topic of possible tests of Poseidon naval drones is being actively discussed in NATO, the forces and means of the alliance are trying to track all the movements of the Belgorod submarine, which is the carrier of "nuclear torpedoes", as they are called in the West.

        It must be announced that the tests were successful and two "Poseidons" are already lying on the ocean floor on both sides of the United States, and the third off the coast of Britain and waiting in the wings. Let them itch and think if there is anything.

      Why supposedly? Any weapon must be tested - this is an axiom. So there will be trials, there will be, and there is no getting away from it. Another thing is that, instead of a special warhead, a simulator will be installed.

          what imitator? - there is a nuclear reactor!

          At one time, we had a thermonuclear "Tsar Bomba" (aka "Kuzkina's mother", aka AN602) in the equivalent of 101,5 megatons. Scientists are smart people, so for testing the bomb was assembled in its half version (in fact it turned out to be 58 megatons). The seismic wave in the earth's crust, generated by the shock wave of the explosion (on the island of Novaya Zemlya), circled the globe three times.
          So, there is experience in this matter: a torpedo must be launched at half the power of the reactor, with half the warhead, and so that the wave does not go to our shores.
          PS
          As one person told me, who talked with witnesses of the “Kuzkina Mother” test (1961), according to calculations, the thermonuclear reaction should have gone on for some time and, of course, went out. But the control time was up, and the thermonuclear reaction continued. those who thought about this began to have doubts that the reaction would go out altogether ... But, thank God, it went out.

        Or maybe the tests have begun? They let her out of the submarine at a low speed and she went "crawling" around the training ground? It is not necessary to launch such a torpedo at maximum speed, it was not conceived for ships, but for coasts and coastal bases.

      As far as I understand, "Poseidon" is an underwater drone with a nuclear warhead, which approaches the coast at a depth of 3-5 km and waits for a command while at depth.

      In fact, Americans are afraid of this thing. Even in a single copy. The real acceptance of Poseidon into service in the nuclear triad of the RF Armed Forces is not far off.

        The minke whales set up buoys to detect submarines. But there the radiation pattern is up 100-200 meters.
        "Poseidon" goes to a greater depth, approaches the coast, lays down on the ground and waits for a command or its absence, then pops up and strikes at pre-killed targets. Yes, like a "dead hand" / There was infa that underwater communications were developed in the Russian Federation on new principles.

        Is it like this? Fantasy however. A hypothetical torpedo with a relatively small warhead (albeit a nuclear one). And Yellowstone beyond the Rocky Mountains, a thousand miles from the nearest coast. Somehow the uncivilized does not fit in.
        And in general, all this is enemy noodles. Poseidon was supposed to pass sea trials in the summer of 2019, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. How long ago was that.
        And by the way, since this year, the anti-corruption program has officially been called Poseidon. It is an accident? Among the Greeks, he did not deal with corruption in any way, exclusively by the sea. And it is very possible that fans of Greek mythology will soon rename "Belgorod" to "Niobe".

      Nonsense. What is needed is not to undermine the BP, but to lay and execute the route at maximum depth, taking into account the characteristics of the bottom. To do this, map the bottom of the oceans on possible routes for the advance of the torpedo. Reliable bottom charts, and a way to navigate underwater when satellites are not available. This is the most difficult task, having solved it, Poseidon will become Hell on earth, even not yet in wartime. The test will be, but a simple launch, without warheads, say. from the White Sea to the Sea of ​​Japan.
