Pentagon Document Confirms Existence of Russian Doomsday Torpedo designed to wipe out coastlines, make them unlivable for generations
snips,,,

A key U.S. nuclear weapons document confirms that the Russian government is developing the most powerful nuclear weapon in more than a half century. A leaked copy of the Pentagon’s Nuclear Posture Review states that Russia is developing a “new intercontinental, nuclear-armed undersea autonomous torpedo.”


Kanyon is reportedly a very long range autonomous underwater vehicle that has a range 6,200 miles, a maximum depth of 3,280 feet, and a speed of 100 knots according to claims in leaked Russian documents.


But what really makes Kanyon nightmare fuel is the drone torpedo's payload: a 100-megaton thermonuclear weapon.


Dropped on New York City, a 100-megaton bomb would kill 8 million people outright and injure 6 million more.


Kanyon is designed to attack coastal areas, destroying cities, naval bases, and ports. The mega-bomb would also generate an artificial tsunami that would surge inland, spreading radioactive contamination with the advancing water. To make matters worse there are reports the warhead is “salted” with the radioactive isotope Cobalt-60. Contaminated areas would be off-limits to humanity for up to 100 years.

It's a nuclear weapon... We got bunches of those...
Rumor has it we got nuclear trident subs...
Nothing new in this age of atomic warfare..
Mutual assured destruction is the key.
Lil Kim has no clue what that is...

Mankind is fucked, it's only a matter of time before a nuclear holocaust happens. The upside is that survivors get to start from scratch, modifying the current system to be functional doesn't seem to be possible, fucked up beyond repair.

...and at 6200 miles @ 100 knots at 3200 feet depth???
You need to carry 3200 gallons of fuel...
Sure, no problem..
Anyone see a kinetic problem here???bsflagbsflagbsflagbsflagbsflag 5 flags for complete bullshit

"Kanyon is 5.5 feet wide and 79 feet long, making it twice as large as a Bulava submarine launched ballistic missile. Sutton also believes the torpedo is nuclear powered. "

Yes. And Putin can shoot fireballs out of his ass over Texas and Michigan.

Its likely a drone nuclear missile sub. Not a torpedo. It may carry some nuke torpedos however.

Can't really see how could such weapons be intercepted, specially if dozens coming from different directions, the ocean is pretty big.

An ICBM can be tracked from launch, but a small autonomous submarine could find it's way into the harbors of Newport News, New York City, San Pedro and San Francisco.
A 100 Megaton warhead could detonate in the open ocean just outside a target's harbor, and cause terrible devastation.

Underwater sensors would pick up its radioactive signature.it could be nuke powered or saltwater battery powered.it could he painted and open cellfoam covered then canvas to look like a whale.
Its magnetic sensors for telemetry could be scrambled.
It could be sunk with a net and weights.or at least permanently pinned on sea floor.
It could be consumed with another hypersonic nuke torpedo.

This is pretty brilliant if true. However, anything from PopMech has to be taken with a grain of salt. They are to science what the NYT is to journalism.

At any rate, a sea floor detonation of a 100 MT device could cause almost unimageanable devastation along absolutely vast segments of coastline. Think of the amount of uplift in a major subduction quake, meters maybe, now think think off an uplift of a couple miles or more that takes place in a few miliseconds. Tidal surges in the hundreds of meters could easily be expected.
