The nuclear underwater drone "Poseidon" is being developed by Russia, because Moscow is not able to create a modern "real weapon", writes the American magazine Forbes, calling the" Doomsday " weapons unnecessary.

According to military expert Kingston Reif, the concept of such a nuclear drone is "grotesque and, objectively speaking, completely unnecessary", since in order to reach the shores of the United States, the Poseidon, starting from a submarine near the Russian mainland, will take about two days. "What is the value of a weapon that takes so long to reach its target?" the expert asks.

According to military expert Owen Cote, the logic of "Poseidon" is political in nature, allowing Russia to "create the illusion of something new and significant", thereby preserving the image of a nuclear superpower. "It is becoming increasingly difficult for Russia to do this in the old-fashioned way, creating a lot of real weapons," the expert added.

Military expert Pavel Luzin admitted that the "Poseidon" is actually understood as a complex of deep-sea research works, and the nuclear torpedo itself is not a weapon. Military expert Pavel Podvig, interviewed by an American magazine, refused to understand the logic of the Doomsday weapon.

In January, the TASS news agency, citing a source in the shipbuilding industry, reported that by 2027, the Russian Navy will receive a third Poseidon carrier.

Earlier, the newspaper "Izvestia", referring to the terms of reference for the implementation of the relevant works, reported that Russia in June 2022 will complete the construction of a coastal base for the"Poseidons".

In May 2020, RIA Novosti, citing a source, reported that the Poseidon "is not yet assembled, individual components and assemblies are being tested."
