Poseidon Unmanned Underwater Vehicle To Be Able To Autonomously Avoid Any Enemy Defense Systems: Media

Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation

The news agency TASS reports (source):

The unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) from the oceanic multi-purpose system Poseidon will be able to autonomously skirt any enemy defense systems, which will make it invulnerable with regard to its performance characteristics, a defense industry source told TASS on Sunday.

“On its way to a target, Poseidon will be able to avoid and overcome any antisubmarine barriers and other enemy defense systems due to the fully automated operation system,” the source said.

The source noted that the UUV’s running depth will exceed 1 km, and “new technical solutions will ensure the maximal speed of 200 km/h.”

“All together, the intellectual and performance characteristics of the vehicle will make it invulnerable and secure a guaranteed target destruction,” he added.

The multi-purpose system Poseidon will include a special-purpose nuclear submarine and unmanned underwater vehicles on board. The source reiterated that “the vehicle from the system is intended not just for strategic tasks, but for destruction, for example, of enemy carrier groups.”

TASS has no official confirmation of the information provided by the source.

The Poseidon

On Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin reported the end of the key stage of testing for the strategic unmanned underwater vehicle Poseidon. In late December last year a defense industry source told TASS that the testing of the UUV’s nuclear power unit was underway at sea at the moment. The source noted that the reactor had been mounted on the hull of the operating vehicle.

Putin first said about the unmanned underwater vehicle with the nuclear power unit in his address to the Federal Assembly in March 2019. The president reported that these UUVs will be equipped with both conventional and nuclear payloads and will be able to destroy enemy infrastructural facilities, carrier groups and other targets.

In effect this article and many others just like it are saying that conflict has become a choreography of ideological play books, the winner is decided by the alliance of Nations that maintain the dominant influence over international public opinion.

Otherwise Russia could utilise Poseidon to neutralize virtually all Western Naval Infrastructure making Russian ability to project military might throughout every corner of the Globe unassailable.

I tend to doubt this scenario, Allah only give Nations a measure of power so the can express their true colours, evil or otherwise.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
