The Pentagon insists that Russia has an underwater drone capable of delivering high-yield nuclear weapons. According to the information available in the US, the system is called “Status-6”.
“Status-6” can move under water for a distance of up to 10,000 km at a depth of 1,000 m at a speed of more than 100 km / h. American experts estimate the power of its thermonuclear charge of the order of 100 megatons. For comparison, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima had a charge of 16 kilotons.
According to representatives of the Pentagon, the “Status-6” is designed to strike at coastal cities, ports, shipyards and naval bases. The detonation of the charge causes enormous damage, and if its power is more than 100 megatons, then a giant tsunami is formed , which will cause large-scale destruction for a long distance into the interior of the territory.
According to Western media, on November 27, tests of a Russian unmanned submarine were recorded. It is assumed that the drone was tested jointly with the submarine “Sarov”. It can also become a basic ship for a drone with a nuclear warhead.
For the first time information about the existence of a secret project appeared in 2015. Then Russian television channels accidentally showed in the news footage with data on the “Status-6” system.
According to another American horror story, Russia has a so-called “salt bomb” armed with a dangerous isotope Cobalt-60. With its explosion, a strong radioactive contamination occurs, which lasts about 100 years.
However, such statements are met with some skepticism, since we are talking about weapons of a giant destructive force, which is not so easy to create in Russia even now .
