Invincible “Bulava” and the impetuous “Squall”: What Russian weapons “will conquer the whole world”
NI named Russian weapons that would “conquer the world” and Britain has compiled a list of weapons threatening Russia. Military experts told how justified the fears of the West.
Recently, articles about Russian weapons have become more and more common in the Western press. The US military-analytical publication The National Interest reported on the rapid “Squall” and the all-destructive “Bulava”, and in Britain have compiled a list of Russian weapons, which this country fears. Having analyzed these materials, we can draw interesting conclusions.
The U.S. is afraid of the Russian “Squall” and “Bulava”
The American edition of The National Interest has published a number of articles about Russian weapons. The last material referred to Russia’s super-fast torpedoes. The publication recognizes that these weapons are unparalleled in the world and are able to turn the fighting at sea upside down.
The fact is that the torpedoes of the “Squall” are able to reach speeds of up to 200 knots or 370 kilometers per hour, while most conventional torpedoes are pushed to the speed ceiling of 50 knots due to the resistance of the environment. Russian weapons bypass this restriction thanks to the missile engine and the super-causation process, which creates a steam bubble around the torpedo, significantly reducing the resistance of the environment.
“Such weapons overkill the usual tactics of underwater warfare and make underwater battles more deadly,” NI writes.
According to the newspaper, these weapons can allow Russia to “conquer the whole world”.
Another material of the publication was devoted to the Russian Bulava missile, which caused consternation among American military experts. The missile is capable of overcoming a distance of 8,000 kilometers and carrying up to a dozen warheads. The power of each of them is up to 150 kilotons. Moreover, the warheads themselves can overcome air defense systems, including through mock traps. According to the newspaper, a volley of 16 such missiles is enough to demolish entire regions of the United States.
“This is a recipe for absolute destruction,” the article reads.
It is worth noting that “Squall” and “Bulava” are the weapons of retaliation.
What Britain fears
The UK considers the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system, the coastal missile system “Bastion-PY” and the operational-tactical complex “Iskander-MJ” the most dangerous types of Russian weapons. This was stated by the Assistant for The Potential and Combat Readiness of the Chief of Staff of the Royal Air Force Julian Ball.
It is noteworthy that the S-400 is an air defense. That is, it is a weapon of protection. The same goes for the bastion-PY coastal missile system. He cannot threaten Britain if British troops do not approach him.
Igor Korotchenko, the head of the national defense magazine, commented on the list of “the most dangerous Russian weapons” compiled by the British in a conversation with Tsargrad. According to him, the weapons are created to protect the security of the country, Russia itself is not going to attack, but if necessary, it will respond.
“We’re not threatening anyone. The main thing is that we do not get involved, and if they climb, it means that we will drown, shoot down, implementing the right to defense in accordance with the UN charter. If they are afraid of something, don’t go where they shouldn’t,” the military expert recommended.
The former head of the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Special Forces Command of the Russian Air Force, Colonel Sergey Khatylev, adds that all the above-mentioned weapons are created with an eye to the future and will not be obsolete for a long time.
“We are talking about the fact that our Iskander missile can operate on ground targets and naval targets. But how they will counteract it – for us it is of interest. And it’s the same for them. How will they be able to destroy our missile with their weapons or reduce the effect of its impact on covered objects to some level… If we compare in this way, then, again, we are in a winning position. Because these missiles are made, as I said, with perspective,” the colonel concluded.
