Russia develops nuclear warheads for new Poseidon torpedoes: TASS

According to TASS, a Russian state news agency, Russia has produced the first nuclear warheads for its new Poseidon super torpedoes, which are being developed for deployment on the Belgorod nuclear submarine.

The Poseidon is a fundamentally new type of strategic nuclear weapon, with its own nuclear power source. The weapon is designed to trigger radioactive ocean swells that could render coastal cities uninhabitable.

The Poseidon, also known as Kanyon by NATO, is a cross between a torpedo and a drone that can be launched from a nuclear submarine. The weapon has an unlimited range and is capable of operating at extreme depths at a speed many times that of any submarine or other torpedoes, according to Putin.

The weapon is also said to be very low noise, have high maneuverability and be practically indestructible for the enemy, making it impossible to counter with current weapon systems.
