Recent successes of the Poseidon project
General view of the product "Poseidon"



The Russian industry continues to develop the promising uninhabited underwater vehicle "Poseidon" and creates the entire complex of weapons as a whole. To date, this project has passed through the first few stages, and various tests are now reported, incl. using standard media. Each such event brings the completion of the development and adoption of the Poseidon into service.

Recent successes


On July 8, 2022, a solemn ceremony was held at the Sevmash plant in Severodvinsk to accept a new submarine, the special-purpose ship BS-329 Belgorod, into the Navy. According to official data, this nuclear submarine is intended for deep-sea research, rescue operations, etc. At the same time, it is believed that Belgorod should also become the first Poseidon carrier.

In early October, sources in NATO reported that on the eve of the nuclear submarine "Belgorod" left its base and left in an unknown direction. It was assumed that the ship went to one of the sea ranges to test the Poseidon apparatus. About a month later, the submarine returned home.

The goals and results of the campaign remained unknown. However, foreign intelligence agencies claimed that no firing was carried out during the exit to the sea. Without any evidence, the failure of such tests due to technical problems was reported. In this regard, a new exit to the sea for the next tests was expected.

Now it became known that the tests of "Poseidon" were indeed carried out. On January 10, the TASS agency reported on events of this kind. From a source close to the Ministry of Defense, it learned that the Belgorod submarine had recently conducted a series of throw tests of a new weapons. In such tests, instead of a full-fledged Poseidon, its weight and size layout was used.


Model for testing, 2018-19

Similar tests were carried out in order to test and develop the launch systems of the underwater vehicle. In addition, the behavior of the carrier submarine was checked after the launch of the Poseidon from different depths. The results of such tests, for obvious reasons, are not specified.

On January 16, TASS also reported on the new successes of the Poseidon project. This time, an unnamed source spoke about the completion of separate tests of all key components and components of the underwater vehicle, incl. nuclear power plant.

In addition, according to him, the industry has produced the first Poseidons ammunition for equipping the Belgorod nuclear submarine. In the near future, these products can be placed on a regular carrier. At the same time, the number of devices in the ship's ammunition load remains unknown.

With carrier


Thus, one of the most interesting and daring domestic projects of recent times is successfully moving forward. The design of all the main systems and units of the underwater vehicle has been completed, which made it possible to conduct their separate tests, probably under test bench conditions. Field tests have also begun - so far only throw tests.

The most important event was the completion of construction and testing of the new Belgorod special-purpose nuclear submarine. Poseidon carrier accepted fleet and began a full-fledged service, which gives new opportunities to the entire program as a whole. As reported, such opportunities are already being used as part of the testing of advanced technology.

Recent ones news allow you to imagine what work will be carried out in the near future. Soon, full-fledged sea trials of underwater vehicles in full standard configuration, but with inert combat equipment instead of a nuclear warhead, should start. The submarine "Belgorod" will have to demonstrate the processes of preparation and launch, and the "Poseidons" themselves will confirm the calculated characteristics and combat capabilities.


Submariners on trials, 2018-19

The successful completion of already several stages of the project gives reason for optimism and positive forecasts for the future. It should be expected that the underwater complex in the form of the Belgorod carrier submarine and the Poseidon apparatus will cope with sea and other tests and will be able to enter service in the foreseeable future.

Such a complex will strengthen the Russian Navy and strategic nuclear forces. Due to it, the fleet and strategic nuclear forces will receive fundamentally new opportunities for strategic deterrence or strikes against critical targets of a potential enemy. At the same time, the Poseidons will actually supplement the existing weapons, which will make the strategic nuclear forces more flexible and efficient.

Technical potential


The nuclear submarine BS-329 "Belgorod" was laid down in 1992 and was originally built according to the serial project 949A "Antey". In the future, however, construction was stopped for a while and resumed. In 2012, the ship was relaid for further completion according to the new project 09852. In this regard, it was transferred to the category of special-purpose submarines.

As is now known, Belgorod was rebuilt into a Poseidon-type submersible carrier. What changes the original design has undergone is unknown. It is obvious that the submarine was able to carry a large-sized apparatus, but detailed information is not available. In particular, it is not known exactly how the Poseidon is placed on board the submarine. According to popular versions, it is transported "on an external sling". The possibility of placing such a product in a special compartment below deck was also demonstrated.

Having received new equipment and weapons, the Belgorod nuclear submarine retained a number of systems and relevant parameters. In particular, driving characteristics and qualities should have remained at the same level. Due to this, the submarine is able to reach any area of ​​the World Ocean and launch the Poseidon.

The Poseidon product itself is a super-heavy torpedo or a compact submarine approx. 20-25 m with a body diameter of up to 2 m. Earlier it was reported that the device will be able to reach a speed of approx. 100 knots, but later the estimates of this parameter were reduced. Due to the nuclear power plant, a global range is achieved.


One of the tests, 2018-19

A new control system must be developed for the apparatus, capable of independently fulfilling the assigned tasks for a long time. The main thing is delivery to a given point of the warhead. Poseidon was mentioned in the past to carry a 100 Mt thermonuclear warhead, but the expected yield has since been reduced to 1-2 Mt.

According to available data and estimates, Poseidon is being created as a means of guaranteed retaliatory strike in the event of a nuclear war. Such devices, in response to the first strike, will have to deliver powerful warheads to naval bases and other enemy targets and hit them.

It is assumed that due to the combination of tactical and technical characteristics, the Poseidon product will be almost impossible to detect and intercept in a timely manner. However, he can deal extremely high damage. The possible consequences of detonating even a "low-yield" 1-2 Mt warhead should warn a potential adversary against rash actions.

It should be noted that the introduction of the Poseidon submersible does not preclude the preservation of "traditional" strategic missile submarines. Ships with SLBMs will continue to be on duty. However, the Navy and Strategic Nuclear Forces will have a new tool for solving the problems of strategic deterrence.

Responsible stages


Thus, to date, the Poseidon project has gone through several crucial stages. According to known data, the tasks set have been successfully completed, and the project is moving to the next stage. Now full-fledged tests will be carried out using a standard carrier.

How long the next work will continue is not yet known. However, their results are generally predictable. At the previous stages, the necessary scientific and technical foundation was laid and the most complex technical problems were solved. Now we are talking about the use of existing technologies and developments. Accordingly, "Poseidon" has every chance to pass the necessary tests and then enter service.

        According to the classification, this is a megaton-class nuclear weapon. From 1 mt or more, it is a super-powerful charge. So it still won’t seem small. But 25 is still better. was never, except for one 58 mt.

      What is the point of fencing such a fool because of 1-2Mt? In terms of dimensions, the b / h is quite suitable in size to the "Kuzka's mother", otherwise it was a long time ago and not perfect in modern times. So 50-100Mt is quite a reality. And talking about 1-2 is so as not to unnerve the frightened idiots once again. Such weapons are used either once or en masse, but also once. There is no point in 1-2 Mt in this case.

          Well, if you think like that, then the avant-gardes, Sarmatians, and other Yars would not have appeared. Do you have any grounds for such high-profile statements? And considering how many new developments (and some of them have been implemented) have come out lately, most likely, Poseidon will also be implemented. And, I think, over time with 100Mt. For for a carrier that moves in water, weight is an order of magnitude less important than for a carrier that moves in the clouds.

              It is foolish to substantiate your opinion and defend it when there is no actual opinion. You simply refer to links like you who decided to just speculate. All these military experts are not worth a penny, and the NWO proved it. No "expert" could predict anything. It's the same here. There is not a single proof of the veracity of their words, and the experts themselves are not guarantors to believe or not to believe them. Only guesses, thoughts in the ear, assumptions, manipulation of the reader's opinion. I believe the doctor because he studied half his life, but why should I trust some obscure anonymous expert? And the assessments of foreigners do not bother me all the more, because they work for their audience, and you never know what motives they have.

      The trick is that the United States cannot respond with similar weapons due to the lack of coastal targets in Russia except for the Pacific coast, while the adversaries themselves are geographically surrounded by oceans and will be guaranteed to be washed away, thus nature itself is for Russia, the new strait named after Comrade Stalin becomes real perspective.

        To increase the diarrhea of ​​sworn enemies in the West, it is necessary to make a cartoon of how enemy cities and coasts are washed into the ocean after 100 MT of Poseidon warheads are detonated. You can make a cartoon at 500 MT. And scarier. am

        But they don’t need it, they will cover the target with an ordinary ballistic missile and that’s it. They don't need to spend money on this nonsense.

          Moreover, ICBMs and SLBMs, at least for the moment, have three absolute advantages: speed of response, inevitability, globality. That is, they carry retaliation for a maximum of half an hour, they are not intercepted after launch, their targets are not tied to any geographical features, such as the coast.

            So it is, but here it is:

            1. Starting from 10 seconds, SLBMs / ICBMs are detected by the IR system of the spacecraft for monitoring and warning of ballistic missile launches (EWS in our opinion). And such a system is ALREADY deployed by the Yankees;
            2. at the very least, but they still have (a bit true) a national missile defense system: on the shore of the GBI, and on ships - MPRO - which can also intercept our SLBMs at OUT for up to 85 seconds ...
            3. after the explosion of the SBP in the atmosphere (air, ground, etc.), all the FVU / FVA operate according to option No. 2, some according to option No. 3 - in a closed cycle. They still drive "air", purifying it from r / a impurities ...
            Now imagine undermining SBP products 3M29 in the marine environment:

            1. The spacecraft of the early warning system does not detect it until the moment of detonation;
            2. in order to detect and destroy before undermining, you need a huge squad of forces - mobile PLS! - and it’s not a fact that it can be effectively neutralized with something else, besides GB with SBP. (and they have long been decommissioned by the US Navy!);
            3. Now it is modestly considered that the TSUNAMI will be "only" 500m high ... and will sweep 200-500 km from the water's edge into the depths of the continent ... This is so.
            BUT !!! This is water, and radioactive! You can’t filter it out by FVU / FVA, everything that is not hermetically sealed will be FLOODED! Everyone who was hiding in underground APs will simply drown! PARAGRAPH.
            And the last. Product 3M29, among other things, also hunts for AMG on the high seas. Our SLBMs cannot yet do this. Yes, work in this direction is underway, but so far they are not in service.
            Therefore, "let it be". There is nothing superfluous in the arsenal of the Fatherland ... especially a "monster from the depths".

              Not certainly in that way. The water from the "neighborhood" of the charge will be radioactive, and the wave will come ashore from the coastal one. There is also the problem of the "collapse" of the bubble cavity during a deep-water explosion, when a compression wave follows the expansion wave, and at some distances it overtakes the first one.
              A separate moment is the social stratification of the United States. With a successful detonation point at the mouth of the Hudson (which is actually pronounced Hudson in English rules), problem areas with high-rise social housing with welfare recipients will be demolished. The savings for the US budget will be hundreds of millions a year.
              The prosperously working white population lives mainly in private homes, and the main industries are far enough from the coasts, and washing away blacks from benefits will only cause gloating.

              Professor Boyarshinov clearly showed that no compact YaZ will make any wave higher than a few meters. Tsunamis are generated by the movement of huge tectonic plates. There, the energy and area of ​​​​impact cannot be compared with any bombs. A nuclear warhead with cobalt can produce radioactive vapor that will fall on the continent.

          The more diverse the weapon, the more variety there will be in its application and the more likely it will reach its destination. Not Seattle alone. There are many places off the coast of America, friend Horatio, of strategic importance, where Poseidon may well get to the bottom. And it's the same with Seattle. If an ocean liner passes, why not a torpedo pass?

            The problem is that all this diversity requires money, resources, industrial capacities and personnel. And all this in the real world is limited. That is, you can build one thing only at the expense of something else.
            For example, "Poseidon" at the moment cost the fleet one missed new SSGN. And that's just for the hulls.

      So 1MT there or 1000MT is a military secret bully
      Also, the issue of "super effects" at 100MT has not been unambiguously resolved, and if an air blast is one thing, then an underwater blast is a completely different alignment, what if the ocean "on fire"? laughing

        and if an air blast is one thing, then an underwater blast is a completely different alignment, what if the ocean "lights up"?
        Will not light up. At least massively, on a planetary scale. Because the pressure at the epicenter will be such that it will very quickly push all possible fuel, that is, water, to the sides. After that, expanding, it will quickly overcome (down) the threshold of a self-sustaining reaction and the "firework" will die out. Moreover, the fusion cycle with ordinary hydrogen is not at all like the cycle with deuterium-tritium. The requirements are much higher.
        For a reaction to become irreversibly self-sustaining, not only is an appropriate initiation of the reaction required, but also an appropriate external pressure that will constantly keep the reaction zone dense enough to keep fusion alive. Boundary parameters can be found in popular books on astronomy wink

Therefore, the spread is from 1 to 100 Mt.

          It’s reluctant to talk about the need for a carrier for this gross torpedo. Especially against the background of the fact that even the SSBNs near their shores have practically nothing to cover the fleet with.

          And the opinion of the wise and multi-star experts from the fleet is extremely valuable. Especially if you remember how the same experts authoritatively substantiated the need for the ever-memorable pr. 22160 - to which, with the start of the fighting, the ground modules of the "torus" had to be fastened with ropes.
          Well, or you can remember how in 1980 competent professionals from the 1st Institute of the Navy for a couple of months issued two completely opposite conclusions on the same ship - the amphibious anti-submarine helicopter carrier pr. 10200: in August 1980 - positive, and in September of the same 1980 - completely negative (does not meet the requirements of the Navy in terms of the survivability of the ship and its power plant, unsinkability and levels of physical fields; construction is unacceptable). laughing

        rational and practical placement in the central part of the robust housing or outside it
        I would even suggest that just for reasons of stability during launch, the lower drop-down hatch with a lowering manipulator is more advantageous than a gas-generating start. Like a bomb bay on airplanes. Even with understandable technical troubles with sealing such a large opening in a rugged case.
        This will also greatly reduce the acoustic signature at the moment of launch. The product can start smoothly by maneuvering away from the carrier, followed by acceleration to cruising speed away from the submarine.
        Indeed, unlike a torpedo attack, there are no such severe restrictions on the speed of destruction and power reserve. But there are very strict requirements for maintaining stealth and leaving the submarine from the launch zone. The usual torpedo launch greatly unmasks the boat for enemy sonar.
        And this means that they will hit at the launch point and near something very powerful. Hoping not only to damage the carrier, but also the launching Poseidon. This is not an ICBM, which is gaining space speed and flies away from the launch very quickly.

Moreover, the effect manifests itself at any depth, the only question is at what distance from the boat it will be. Another thing is that an uninhabited vehicle has no time limits, and can hide under a tanker, get to the desired current and drift somewhere for half a year, then swim under a passing ship for some more to another current and so in a roundabout way reach the target, drown there is a warhead, and swim back with a fair current, and so several times, having mined the Hudson and the Chesapeake Bay.

        Money pump.

        The money pump is our businessmen, leaving profits and not only offshore. But here the money remains in the country and goes to the development of science, technology, and production.
        Secondly, the project was approved by the military-technical commission under the President of the Russian Federation. Probably not quite stupid people sit there. Probably more than once calculated all the pros and cons.

    So far, alas, this looks like a common win.
    It has been discussed many times at VO.
    An explosion in the sea will not give anything.
    Explosion near the shore - A) we still have to come up. And the newest sensors, supposedly, capture everything quite well, and they will hammer everything that is.
    B) is inferior in efficiency to an equivalent air explosion. (conventional "indestructible" missiles)

    Just another contribution to the arms race.
    No matter how much NATO wanted to spend massive amounts of money on new weapons (remember how TRUMP swore), but it will have to.

        There, even before the big "bulk" there will be a very, very big "boom-boom" from the water hammer. If even a relatively small torpedo (in comparison with nuclear weapons) under the bottom is capable of breaking a sickly ship in half, then there are already many megatons under the keel, probably not only the paint will be scratched.

        How to get into a Ford? He is moving in an unpredictable direction.
        And in short, with homing along the wake, it was easier to shoot with an ordinary torpedo, even with a special warhead.

          Aiming at the CS very seriously reduces the firing range, because you also need to lay down to "catch up". But it is unlikely that all this was worth 2000 mm of caliber and a length of 20 m. This thing is not interesting as a torpedo. As an autonomous UAV - maybe, but that's a completely different story.

          the point in such a torpedo could be, for example, if its goal is not to hit the coastal areas of the enemy, when passing to the coast, rising to the shelf depths and falling into the zone of destruction of anti-aircraft defense systems, but for example, if the goal is to defeat some unstable geological areas on sea/ocean floor. like faults and the like to provoke a more powerful natural cataclysm. For such a purpose, you do not need to rise to the surface and do not need special pointing accuracy. But I would rather believe in the topic of drinking than in such deep studies by our wisest leadership. Although it may turn out that they did it for the sake of drinking, but suddenly it will come in handy for launching something like a new Flood. But it is not exactly :)

    There are no data, hence the scatter. But if we assume 100 mt, then the weight of the warhead, the nuclear power itself \u20d ~ 80 tons, this is very approximate and is based on data from the XNUMXs of the last century.

    In particular, it is not known exactly how the Poseidon is placed on board the submarine. According to popular versions, it is transported "on an external sling". The possibility of placing such a product in a special compartment below deck was also demonstrated.
    This is the first time I hear about such placement of torpedoes. Moreover, not just one torpedo, but 6 (this number is most often indicated in the press). If the external placement of torpedoes were considered, then the previous length of the boat would be quite enough (project 949A "Antey" - 154m), but by crashing a compartment into it, the boat was lengthened to 184m.
    The boat passed the length of the "Shark" (project 941 - length according to DWL 172,8 m)

    100 knots require movement a la Flurry. So the speed is hardly more than 70 knots, but rather 50-60. We designed and made a 50 Mt charge only once, and it certainly would not fit there. Most likely, they "forced" one of the warheads that are already in service.

    Throw slippers, but from the very first mention I see Poseidon as the carrier of something like the Zircon / Dagger / Iskander rocket. With a very vigorous head.
    And his advantage is not in speed but in stealth.

      The thing is that our colleagues on the site for the most part do not even represent the psychology of people on board the NK, when the broadcast announces "Attention to combat posts! The ship is entering a zone DANGEROUS FROM SUBMARINES! Start searching for submarines in the sector. .." or Submarine Search Sector: XX-0-UU "...
      Everyone's faces immediately become "serious" to the point of severity ... Everyone wants to live ... Therefore, it is not without reason that such carriers are called - MONSTER from the depths ...

        He said they would throw slippers. Minusators.
        Poseidon is like a long arm against the AUG, definitely with an underwater detonation. But against ground objects, the meaning in an underwater explosion disappears. Several large naval bases as targets???? Meaning???? But will the American missile defense be able to track the launch of Zircon 500 km from the coast ??? I think no. And a huge amount of money is needed to eliminate this threat.

    To cause a tsunami, a tectonic shift of the seabed is needed, with an upward push, reaching a size of several kilometers. The Yankees at 45 at a training ground in New Zealand dealt with this issue, they wanted to wash away a couple of the islands of Iwo Jima and Medway with a wave, I don’t remember exactly. As a result, they refused, the wave quickly died out, a nuclear charge cannot lift as much water as mother nature. The maximum that will wash away is taverns on Brighton Beach)

    The comrade was mistaken, they decided to reduce the warhead not to 2 Mt, but twice from 100 - the latest data is 50 Mt! They considered it sufficient. Calculated computer strikes on England and the United States have already been shown.

    The dimensions of the carrier, its displacement are set in accordance with the warhead. Length 25 meters x per area (diameter 2,0 meters = 3,1416 sq. m) = 78,54 cubic meters. Dimensions allow you to install the "Tsar Bomba or Kuzkin's mother". All of North America must be completely destroyed. Since the population of Russia will be completely destroyed during a nuclear war, the warhead of Poseidon should be maximum, for example, one gigaton.
