Nuclear torpedo created as a weapon for nuclear deterrence
The consequences can be most terrible.
From the explosion there will be a Tsunami height of 500 meters
These tsunamis can destroy the seaside cities
In the early 1950s, the Soviet Ministry of Medium Machine Building secretly
initiated plans for incorporating nuclear warheads into submarine warfare.
Initially, the main task of the experimental nuclear submarine of Project 627 with a giant electric torpedo T-15
caliber of 1550 mm for thermonuclear charge was striking the coastal areas of the probable enemy.
For this purpose, the installation of one large T-15 torpedo,
carrying a charge of enormous power, was planned for the nuclear submarine,
the length of the torpedo tube was more than 22% of the total length of the nuclear submarine
Exemplary characteristics of the first nuclear torpedo
Weight of the torpedo, kg: 40000;
Length of the torpedo, cm: 2355;
Type of power: electric;
Nuclear charge: thermonuclear ~ 100 megatons;
The creation of such a large torpedo
and its control system was a particularly complex problem.
During the work on the torpedo T-15 specialists
doubted the effectiveness of the use of such weapons.

Khrushchev and Kennedy are one step away from nuclear catastrophe
Fortunately, the nuclear apocalypse did not happen.
project was canceled.
In 2015, informations emerged that Russia may be developing a new up to 100 MT nuclear torpedo,
the Status-6 Ocean Multipurpose System codenamed „Kanyon“ by Pentagon officials.
The circumstances under which the world learned about the creation of a nuclear torpedo
are very strange.
The secret plan was uncovered, allegedly by accident, through the Russian state channel.
Is it really hard to believe that this information reached the world public by chance?
More likely, it seems that this should be taken as a warning.
As a curiosity, we can add that there is a fairly large number of people
who believe in the theory of conspiracy,
according to which the tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11,
2011 was also caused by a weapon similar to the one told by the Russian media.
