#video | Test marine drone

In March 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed the details of new types of Russian weapons. In particular, he referred to the development of underwater drones, able to cover Intercontinental distances faster than all currently known submarines and torpedoes. The device called "Poseidon" has already been tested — it is reported that in the process there were no problems, and the personnel were successfully trained. Short video test is already published on the Internet.

The video shows the process of preparation and the launch itself. It is known that the underwater vehicle, Poseidon has a greater fighting power — it can be equipped with conventional ammunition and nuclear. Its maximum speed is estimated at 200 kilometers per hour, and the power of a nuclear shell can reach an impressive two megatons. The cruising range of the new devices may be virtually unlimited.

The message to the Federal Assembly the President announced that the first nuclear submarine "Poseidon" will be launched in the spring of 2019. It is expected that the naval fleet of Russia will acquire 32 unmanned vehicles that will be placed on four submarines. One of them is likely to be the submarine special purpose "Khabarovsk". Other carriers will be available in the Navy submarine 949A series.

It is Noteworthy that the name "Poseidon" was selected in the competition organized by the Ministry of defence. In the final, in addition to the winner, also had the options "IDE" and "Kraken", but they were less appropriate.
