Putin announces successful tests of new nuclear-powered stealth weapons


President Vladimir Putin announced Thursday that the Russian army had successfully tested three new nuclear-capable weapons – an advanced cruise missile, an underwater drone, and a heavy ICBM. He said that the cruise missile was designed to carry a nuclear warhead, had unlimited range, and could break through any anti-missile defense system in use in the world. The new drone can target aircraft carriers as well as shore facilities. The new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile was named Sarmat.

    Excellent. Since the Russians are so awesome that they’ve made missile defense completely useless and irrelevant, they will stop whining about missile defense going up in Europe, right?

    First, the head-line says nuclear-powered, when they are alleged Russian weapons that could carry nuclear weapons. Second, to add nukes and deploy them to these devices would in some cases be a violation of agreements. In any case, the word “stealth” is also debatable. They are “stealth” weapons in perhaps Putin’s mind. He has not explained why a cruise-missile, a ballistic missile or an under water drone has “stealth”. Has Putin created some invisibility cloak like the Americans are working on?

    Putin is simply pushing back in words because the US apparently is moving forward with the technological hurdles of a stealthy hypersonic fighter bomber (SR-72) capable of hypersonic nuke payloads, sub drones, the X-51 Wave Rider in a workable form, the Stratolift air craft capable of lifting supersonic ground penetrators to high altitude or low orbit, the B-21 that will be capable of stealth bombing, and major allied discoveries involving the durability and power of new rail and laser technology. He must be shocked by the several US companies beginning to dominate launch capability. Confronted by the major breakout of more US programs his cash reserves can counter, Putin resorts to expanding the threat of mega-nukes. The same logic is involved in Su-57 deployment in Syria. The Russian copy of the F-22 dubbed the Raptor killer will be obsolete by the time its fight worthy.

      No, the headline is correct – Putin is claiming they are powered by a new type of miniturized nuclear reactor (hence the unlimited range)…

      what agreements ? USA canceled all the agreement , for no other reason , than the Russians were going financially and technically into oblivion . Except those were not Russians that were going to an oblivion , those were the Americans –they just did not look at the mirrors on all those cracked walls Jews created for them . Now they had an animation of sending plasma volcano to Miami and to all the Israelis , that live there .
      The rest is only 30 seconds away , like Romania , Baltics , Ukraine , Germany , UK and the rest of the enemies of the state –United States , They put them in the position to be first eliminated .

        Yawn.

        If the US or Israel suffer a nuke attack, Tehran, Qom, Mecca, and now Moscow will be utterly destroyed in retaliation.

      Stealth doesn’t mean invisible to the eye. It means invisible to radar. He might be lying or he might just mean that it has avoidance abilities. That’s another meaning for stealth.

      LOL@X-51 Waverider. You must be a fucking moron. That program gets stuck since 2013, almost will be cancelled due to the no light at the tunnel’s end on tackling the issue of plasma cloud devastating electromagnetic signals. And so far only Russians can solve it.

      Considering the fact that the US has a lot of sex-toy programs that sustainably burn up American people’s pockets such as FCS, laser beamer, F-35, F22…surely there is no way for the US and its NATO vassals can catch up with Russia in terms of innovating all new weapons. The US let suck, and fuck off Syria.

    “Any nuclear attack against Russia or its allies will receive a nuclear response – as per the Russian defense doctrine,” he said. —– This was addressed DIRECTLY to Israel. ——- After the F16 was downed, Nutty Yahoo wanted to nuke Syria and/or Iran. A phone call stopped him. Then the SU-57s appeared in Syria. Now this statement. Quotations from the Bible won’t save your sorry asses, poor jews! One wrong step, and you’re toast.

    Bravo Russia! This ends the century long military advantage of the West over other nations of the world, which enabled slavery, inquisition, colonization, holocaust, and the recent orange revolutions since Iran 1953 till today, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Ukraine. The south American nations I didn’t even mention. Not mentioned are WW1 and WW2, which was conjured by UK and supported by US.

    These weapons mentioned today in a historic speech of the Russian president are closing the age of West threatening Russia by its stupid expansion of NATO up to the Russian borders .

    The US voices here on the website are showing how far the blinding US propaganda has brought it’s own nation. The level of arrogance is a direct measurement of the missing insight of the technologies Russia has just announced. This is true also for the status of Russia’s “collapsing” economy.
    This facts, independently whether one likes it, understands it, or believes it, will secure the strategic balance in the world and herewith the needed peace for further development in the world.
    As good as it is, that there are two super powers – USA and Russia, who balance each other, as terrible it would be, if only one power would dominate the world affairs.
    Shalom.

      RuSSia really the Evil Empire, if they didn’t give us Rabbi Nachman on January 1 2014, and they continue using illegal chems on people then really why are they still around today?

      They can still save their sorry asses by giving us the Rabbi before April 19th. No I am not scared at all by the disciples of Satan. I am only asking for the body of a Saint and nothing else. It’s an offer however they cannot refuse. Their sorry asses are bound to rot sooner than later anyways and I am offering them to get a life, possibly an eternal one here on earth. No Gd can harden pharaoh if he lets Rabbi Nachman help him. That’s you Putin.

    Simple logic: let’s assume Putler’s claims are true. Then, USA has same or better nukes too, because USA usually has better tech. All this means that after Putler uses nukes, Russia will be obliterated into radioactive dust, too, in about 5 minutes after Putler’s nukes take off. I do not understand meaning of this Suicide Button logic. Shy would someone push Suicide Button? Many terminally ill patients, in pain, and such, want suicide, and suicide is justifiable in such cases when patients want to end their own suffering. But Suicide Button should not be pressed to eradicate entire Earth though.
