Russia does not mind creating a super-powerful nuclear torpedo

In Russia, they decided to revise the idea of ​​academician Andrei Sakharov to create a super-powerful torpedo with a nuclear warhead,  RIA Novosti reported. According to Shamil Aliyev, one of the creators of torpedo weapons in Russia, this idea was not realized earlier, not because it worked badly, but because of lack of funds.

“Now there is a tendency to return to ideas that were not realized before, <…> Sakharov’s views on the production of torpedoes 24 meters in length, a meter and a half meter in diameter with a nuclear warhead and a range of 50 kilometers, are re-considered,  ” the scientist told RIA Novosti.

According to him, the task of such weapons within the framework of Sakharov’s concept is “the destruction of objects on the coast by means of an explosion in the water.”
