Description: The Russian Navy Ocean Multipurpose System Poseidon, also known as Status-6, is a strategic torpedo delivered by special submarines capable of crossing distances of 10,000 kilometers at speeds of up to 185 kph and depths of 1,000 meters. Derived from the T-15 torpedo, the new weapon is basically an unmanned underwater vehicle equipped with an advanced navigation system. The Status-6 torpedo may be used to deliver massive nuclear warheads (up to 100 Megatons) or highly radioactive cobalt bombs off the coast of the United States of America against targets such as naval bases, industrial facilities, ports and large cities. The Status-6 weapon existence was leaked in November 2015 and may enter into service in the 2019-2020 timeframe. On March 1, 2018, President Putin revealed the Status-6 unmanned underwater vehicle with the capability not only to hit onshore facilities but also US aircraft carriers battle groups. The Status-6 is to be released by a modified Oscar-class submarine.
