Poseidon is a Putin’s showpiece. First revealed in 2015, this nuclear-powered underwater drone—one of Russia’s next-generation nuclear weapons—is nicknamed the “tsunami apocalypse torpedo” for its multi-megaton warhead that could create city-smashing waves… Powered by a miniature nuclear reactor, the apocalypse torpedo also has effectively unlimited range. Unlike an ICBM or one of Putin’s new hypersonic missiles, it would take Poseidon hours to reach its target. On the other hand, it would bypass current missile defenses. – Popular Mechanics Photo: Sarov sub critical to Russia’s development of the new KANYON nuclear armed nuclear powered strategic weapon.
