North Korea tests underwater nuclear drone
North Korea has tested a new underwater combat drone capable of carrying a nuclear warhead that could create a ‘radioactive tsunami’, TASS reports
The tests took place from March 21st to 23rd, and were led by the leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong Un.
“This secret weapon is an unmanned nuclear attack submarine. Its mission is to secretly swim under water, produce a super-powerful radioactive tsunami by means of an underwater explosion in order to eliminate a group of enemy ships and an entire port,” the Voice of Korea radio reported today.
It is noted that the drone was under water for 59 hours, moving with a constant change in course at a depth of 80-150m. On the afternoon of March 23rd, it reached the target in the waters of Hongwon Bay, which imitated the enemy’s port. There, its test warhead was detonated remotely underwater.
“As a result of the tests, all the tactical and technical characteristics of the nuclear unmanned underwater offensive vehicle were accurately assessed, its reliability was confirmed, and its impeccable ability to deliver a fatal blow was proved,” the radio reported.
