How Dangerous is Russia’s Nuclear Torpedo — Poseidon?

In March of 2018, Putin announced his newest doomsday weapon — the Poseidon nuclear-tipped torpedo.

But after watching Russia’s military fumble around Ukraine for the past three months, perhaps this too is a paper tiger; that is, an overhyped “political” weapon meant to cause fear more than damage — just like Russia’s conventional military.

Unfortunately, Poseidon is just the type of insane military engineering that Russia has, historically, doubled down on.
