Aircraft carriers have been sitting ducks for decades… this just makes it much worse. Up until now I thought supercavitating torpedoes were the big problem to face in WWIII…
“Poseidon, previously known by the Russian codename Status-6, is designed to create a tsunami wave up to 1,600 ft. tall and wipe out enemy vessels and marine bases, which would then contaminate the area with radioactive isotopes.”
[I hope this isn’t the way many recent tsunami dreams from around the world are fulfilled. Such weapons are like having a pole shift in a bottle…]
“Poseidon is a weapon of last resort. It will also function as a deterrent against Western forces. The drone can travel at speeds of up to 60 to 185 mph, with a range of 6,200 miles and a maximum depth of 3,300 ft. The drone is cloaked by stealth technology to elude acoustic tracking devices. Its size has been estimated at 5 ft. wide and 78 ft. long.
The source drone is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead with a yield of up to 2 megatonnes, enough to destroy a Western naval base and or an entire aircraft carrier battle group.”
That would put the little fleet-destroying bombs used in the late 1940s to shame
