It probably sounds like an old washing machine with bad bearings, and has three attack submarines trailing it.

Old pinball machine parts, likely.

They make any noise at all, the ice caps will be sacrificed.
Foom and doom and kaboom

I bet somebody just borrowed it to drive down to the KFC for a bucket of chicken. They'll probably be right back.

Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it.

I mean...at least make a claim that's actually believable.

That's more of a Libyan nuclear device.

Thanks to us not giving two shiats that China was stealing every secret available in Cincinnati 7 axis CNC Milling machines, Russia can now make super quiet props for their submarines

The drone can be deployed from the submarine at any time and detonated at a depth of 1 kilometer near a coastal city. Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it.

Okay -- this is admittedly outside my area of education, but I'm pretty sure that's not how waves work.  Like, water is a good insulator against ionizing radiation, right?  So, at a depth of 1000m, scattered radioactive material is not a surface danger?  I assume it depends a lot on the coastal underwater topography, but I'd guess that a lot (if not all) of the radioactive material is going to make it into the water that forms the actual wave that would hit the shore.  It's just the energy from the explosion, not the actual water from down there (again, depending on how close to shore it happens and how deep).

This sounds a lot like action-movie physics at work.

Publicly unknown is the best kind of unknown.

They can... But they won't. Sergei spent the money for the props on a vacation home and a car for his mistress.

Alright Ukraine, which one of you farmers connected a tractor and hauled off that Russian sub?

"Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it."

Russian state media can claim whatever the fark they want, that's not even remotely possible.
 
2022-10-03 10:57:54 PM  
Russia sinks own ship, intentionally or unintentionally. Blames US. Uses it as excuse to make everything ugly.
 
2022-10-03 10:57:56 PM  
If the sub actually goes somewhere without being detected by rolling coal, and as OdradekRexmentioned above, several attack subs trailing it, their tubes are probably rusted, missile engines farked up and warheads not working at all, or just detonating in their tubes, which would be bad for the oceans. So let's just go for the obvious, all systems fail, orcs will be crushed by depth, and we all live happily ever after.

Whole world should unify behind making sure Russia is destroyed and broken apart. Not that ending Russia would achieve world peace, but would certainly be a step toward it.
 
2022-10-03 10:59:08 PM  
It probably just got a rusty hole in it and sank right there in the farking harbor. Russians are useless people. If it was even a real thing at all.
 
2022-10-03 11:00:17 PM  
Whatever country Russia attacks with this weapon can just deploy their Power Rangers to stop the wave with their Zords.  I mean after all the Power Rangers are as realistic as a bomb that can create a 1600 foot wave.

They're using it to nuke a hurricane, duh

That's the clever plan, the Russian sub makes so much noise, that NATO subs will accidentally blue on blue in the sonar whiteout.

Look up Operation Crossroads and learn about how the US unwittingly created a fleet of super radioactive ships. As an added bonus, they had virtually no idea of the effects of radiation at the time. Sailors tried decontamination procedures with no PPE and there was no scrub down plan.

America truly screwed the pooch by idling NC/CNC equipment while other nations reverse engineered and became masters of high tolerance high speed manufacturing stations. We were warned about the military complex but did not listen.

abhorrent1: Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it.

Naw, this is absolutely believable.    The devil is in the details.

First tell -  that "1600-ft".   That's not 1600 feet high, that's 1600 feet wide.

Like Daffy's trick, they can only do it once per sub.   They beach the sub then pull the control rods from the engine, causing it to go fukishima.  The radius is 1600 feet from ground zero, and it all washes out to sea.

If that thing isn't known within six inches of its position at all times by several western powers I'd be shocked.

Detonating a nuke a kilometer down is just wasting a good nuke.

You'll get some short-term radioactive salt and a big bubble that doesn't make it to the surface.

And some hot water.
 
2022-10-03 11:30:18 PM  
I honestly wonder about the orders given to whatever subs we have trailing the Belgorad.  It's brand new so it probably does work and the super torpedo might be a thing.  They've also had a bunch of successful Bulava tests so their new boomer might also work

If they hear these things open a weapon door do they have license to sink it?  Nobody tests nuclear capable weapons without warning everybody so hearing a sub preparing to fire without warning might well be assumed to be in anger. I honestly have no idea if Russian sonar nets are good enough to pick up a Virginia firing a torpedo- sorry Yuri about the loss, must haves been terrible maintenance...

Incredible escalation and risks, but would it be considered less risk than letting one launch something?

Exploding a nuke 1,000m down will do one of two things:

A. Waste a perfectly good nuke.
B. Summon the Kaiju.

1600 feet in what direction? 1600 feet tall?  Wide?  Like, I would think this needs at least one more dimension mentioned. Also, I DNRTFA.

Yeah, and if there's a sub inside that bubble it's having a very bad last day but a tsunami?

Not even close. Unless you are very nearby you'll need instruments to detect it.

A shallow-water burst is much more spectacular.

Is it just me, or has the world entered an unbelievably dangerous time these days? It's a wonder all of us aren't incapacitated with crushing depression, given that it seems inevitable that something very bad is going to happen. If not this year, then sometime within the next five years. Everything seems to be going to shiat.
 
2022-10-03 11:45:34 PM  
Very real chance the sub simply sank from lack of maintenance.

chuggernaught: Very real chance the sub simply sank from lack of maintenance.


$5.5 Billion in kit disappeared from their warehouses so it wouldnt be surprising if the sub went out and they found out all the oxygen was missing the hard way.
