Russian navies are preparing for a possible test of a new nuclear-powered torpedo.
This is reported by CNN, citing a senior US official with direct knowledge of the situation.< br />
According to the publication, among the ships that took part in the training was the Belgorod cruise missile submarine modified for special operations, capable of launching unmanned underwater vehicles, including the Poseidon torpedo.
Last week, ships were seen leaving the Arctic Sea test site and returning to port without being tested. The US believes the Russians may have encountered technical difficulties.
US officials stated that Russia could try test the torpedo again, but note that the water in the test area will soon begin to freeze over, limiting the window for operations.
It is noted that the test would lead to further escalation of tensions with the United States.
