Images obtained by Naval News show the submarine operating in the Barents Sea, north of Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Belgorod (K-329) is a unique submarine. It is 178 meters (583 feet) long and 15 meters (50 feet) wide. This makes it by far the largest building built in the world since the famous Typhoon class.
Putin and infrastructure are under fire. ‘This is the new front’: Reprisals on gas pipelines, power plants and railways are on the rise.
Described by the US Navy as a “intercontinental nuclear-powered autonomous torpedo,” it combines impressive range with hard-to-kill performance. There is concern that, with current weapons, it will actually be unstoppable once fired.
Launched in 2019, Belgorod was officially commissioned on July 8, 2022. It was spotted leaving Severodvinsk in the White Sea a few weeks ago, and was in the Barents Sea by September 22. He was still there on September 27. On both dates it was observed on the surface.
The Poseidon score test is absolutely out of the question. It may be customary to test a new weapon system. Or it can be mainly political, as a demonstration. Nuclear weapons testing, even without warheads, could be part of the nuclear escalation metric that Russia chooses. Satellite images show Belgorod operating in the eastern Barents Sea on September 22 and 27.
