Has Russia’s Robotic Nuclear Torpedo Surfaced?

In 2015, Russia television “accidentally” showed a glimpse of plans for a proposed new 100-megaton autonomous torpedo designed to destroy American ports and poison the coastline of any adversary it targets. Analysts were left wondering whether the blueprints were a sign that Moscow was returning to the good old days of bizarre Cold War weapons development—or just bluffing to keep the Yankees off balance.

The U.S. government still appears to believe that the weapon is a real Russian program, according to a leaked draft of the Trump administration’s forthcoming Nuclear Posture Review obtained by the Huffington Post.
