RUSSIA ALERT: Putin’s terrifying troops DESTROY ENEMY in fearsome war games

The Black Sea Fleet’s coastal defence troops launched missiles at warships during drills on the Taman Peninsula in south Russia today. Commander Colonel Sergei Yablokov told Tass News Agency: “Command and staff exercises were held on the terrain where combat operations were practiced. The troops conducted operations at the long, medium and short engagement range.” Long distance bastion missile systems were deployed along with Bereg raillery guns, Col Yablokov confirmed.

The troops were tasked to defend the Novorossiysk naval base, with the scenario being a group of enemy warships aiming to approach the coast to land the assault force.

The hostile drill comes after Russia revealed its doomsday weapon yesterday - a submarine capable of carrying a devastating new nuclear weapon.

The Belgorod submarine will be able to carry the groundbreaking Poseidon strategic weapon which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced last month.

During his address to the country’s Federal Assembly, Putin described the development of an underwater drone which as he put it, “nothing in the world could withstand”. Commenting on the new submarine, Carl Bildt, co-chair of the European Council on Foreign Relations, regarded it as a “very special ship”.

The Poseidon drone can reportedly cause deadly tsunamis and can carry both nuclear and conventional missiles.

Speaking on the missile during his speech earlier this year Putin said: “It is really fantastic.

“They are quiet, highly manoeuvrable and have hardly any vulnerabilities for the enemy to exploit.

“There is simply nothing in the world capable of withstanding them.”

The weapon is expected to be incorporated by the end of 2020 as Russia looks to increase its military arsenal.

According to Russia’s news agency, TASS, the drone will have an unlimited range and will be able to operate one kilometre under water.

There have also been reports that the warhead is capable of exploding with a force of 200 megatons of TNT.

If true, that would make it four times as powerful as the Tsar Bomba, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever created.
