Putins city killer nuclear mega-sub with Poseidon torpedo successfully tested

Vladimir Putin’s huge nuclear doomsday mega submarine has been successfully tested by the power-mad warmonger.

The 604ft, 30,000 ton, nuclear-powered submarine Belgorod completed a series of tests of the Poseidon torpedo mock-up, according to Russian state media, citing the military.

Chillingly, a source claims that the series of tests were to check the capabilities of the Poseidon missile launch system.

"Throw firing of the Poseidon super-torpedo model was carried out to clarify the behaviour of the submarine at different depths after the launch,” the source said.

The Poseidon is an underwater nuclear-capable torpedo, with its continued testing stoking fears of a nuclear war ahead.

Belgorod is thought to be able to carry up to eight Poseidons at a time – each 79ft long – and armed with nuclear warheads that can travel at around 80mph below the surface of the water.

Sources involved with the US Army told CNN earlier today, January 10, that they were keeping tabs on the tests, exploring the possibility of the rockets being able to hit coastal cities in the US.

Worryingly, the missiles are totally autonomous and can wait underwater on their own before moving towards their target.

Belgorod is the world’s biggest working sub and has earned the terrifying name the “city killer” – it can stay underwater for around 120 days at a time.

It is a modification of an Oscar II, a ship made before the fall of the Soviet Union, and carries with it a number of weapons and tools that help it carry out clandestine warfare.

Test fires of the weapons are thought to be one of the ways Russia may try to intimidate Ukraine and the West.

A TV propagandist for Putin, Dmitry Kiselyov, once said it had the ability to "plunge Britain into the depths of the sea".
