Russia is increasing its achievements in the field of nuclear weapons. The latest torpedo with a nuclear warhead has already been developed, hypersonic missiles have appeared, helicopters and ground-to-air ammunition are being improved. 19Fortyfive military columnist Brian Eastwood said that Moscow already has five types of weapons that can be called the deadliest.
First, he mentioned the Poseidon nuclear torpedo with a huge range. It will be launched from the K-329 Belgorod submarine. “Huge as a bus”, it is capable of reaching the US coast
The expert found the S-400 Triumph missile defense system particularly powerful. She can not only destroy manned aircraft and some dons. It can be used to destroy cruise and ballistic missiles up to 250 miles away. Each battery contains eight launchers of 32 missiles with radar and a mobile command post.
The Pantsir S-1 mobile launcher has 12 surface-to-air missiles and two 30-mm cannons. Capable of shooting down aircraft, ballistic and cruise missiles, precision ammunition. Some upgraded versions have improved radar, increased detection range and effective rotating cannons.
Brian Eastwood compared the Mi-28NM Superhunter attack helicopter with the American AH-64 Apache. The Russian helicopter is equipped with sensors that allow it to fly and attack at night. It has a state-of-the-art radar that provides an all-round view with a radar image. The Mi-28NM develops a speed of 186 miles per hour with a range of 280 miles. It has a 30mm cannon, conventional and anti-tank Attack missiles. Some helicopters have all-weather functions, which is especially valuable in the Middle East.
The expert also mentioned the Yars missile systems. They are designed to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles. Each system can carry 3-6 warheads with a capacity of 150-200 kilotons. The range is about 10 thousand kilometers. Yars is quite difficult to detect, and preparation for launching missiles takes seven minutes.
