Moscow - Russia is known to have launched the nuclear-powered K-329 Belgorod at the Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk on 8 July. Currently, the Russian Navy does not have a reliable aircraft carrier. This then makes Russia achieve a big loss because the aircraft carrier is one of the components needed.

In the end, however, Russia showed off the K-329 Belgorod, a submarine that might soon launch a nuclear-tipped torpedo while equipping the most modern missiles available to submarines.

The nuclear-powered K-329 Belgorod is an Oscar II-class missile fast attack ship. On July 8, 2022, a special ceremony was held at Sevmash Shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), Russia's largest shipbuilding company, to sign the acceptance report of the research submarine Belgorod," wrote N.

As the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Nikolai Yevmenov said at the ceremony, Belgorod will open up new opportunities for conducting research. "The Belgorod submarine opens up new opportunities for Russia to conduct research and help carry out various scientific expeditions and rescue operations in remote areas of the World Ocean.

Quoted from 19fortyfive.com, this submarine is known to be very dangerous. The weapons that American naval strategists fear the most are the nuclear-powered torpedo and the planned Poseidon nuclear weapon.

In this case, the Poseidon is ready to be integrated into the Belgorod, it serves as an underwater combat drone with a seemingly unlimited range. Russian television news programs claim Poseidon could "wipe Britain off the map ... in a radioactive tsunami."

The doomsday weapon was 80 feet long and could travel at 108 knots. Meanwhile, it can reach as deep as 3,200 feet. This autonomous underwater drone can produce explosions of up to two megatons.

Even so, Poseidon is still a few years away from deployment. The Belgorod is the largest submarine Russia has built in 30 years.

It is 549 feet long and 49 feet wide, has two nuclear reactors, and weighs 24,000 tons. It has also been undergoing sea trials since 2019.
