Putin’s submarine, the Belgorod, is reported to be capable of generating a 1,600-foot ‘radioactive tsunami.’ Now, this Russian nuclear submarine armed with a ‘doomsday’ weapon has disappeared from the Arctic harbor.
According to numerous accounts, a top-of-the-line Russian nuclear-powered submarine has vanished from its harbor in the Arctic together with its alleged “doomsday weapon.”
NATO nations have apparently been told that Russia’s Belgorod submarine does not seem to be functioning from its White Sea station, where it has been operational since July. According to Italian media, officials have cautioned that Russia may prepare to deploy Belgorod’s “Poseidon” weapons system, a drone outfitted with a nuclear bomb capable of causing a “radioactive tsunami.”
The drone can be launched from the submarine at any moment and detonated close to a coastal city at a depth of one kilometer. The weapon, according to Russian international press, can generate a 1,600-foot wave that hits the coast and irradiates it.
The 600-foot submarine was supplied to the Russian Navy in July as part of a top-secret program run by Russian President Vladimir Putin that intends to create and use a number of a new class of “super weapons.”

Author of “Putin’s Playbook,” and strategic intelligence analyst Rebekah Koffler cautioned that the usage of such a device by Russia would only be a last choice “in the event that Russia and the U.S. are in a direct kinetic war and Russia is losing.”
According to Koffler, the weapon will most likely not be functional until 2027, although Putin may be testing it to threaten both Ukraine and its NATO allies in the West. Russia’s prospective deployment of nuclear weapons, according to Putin, is “not a bluff.”
Belgorod’s whereabouts is still unknown to the public as of Monday, which Koffler finds unsurprising. According to Koffler, Russian subs possess some of the highest stealth capabilities in the globe and have even sneaked into American seas in the past.
“There have been times when Russian nuclear-powered attack submarines, armed with long-range cruise missiles, operated undetected for weeks close to U.S. shores,” Koffler told Fox News Digital.
In one event in the early 2010s, a submarine was only discovered as it was departing U.S. seas.
“My colleagues from the Office of Naval Intelligence got a serious dressing down by a four-star general” following the event, Koffler said.
