As reported a source in the military-industrial complex (MIC), once the drone leaves the sub-carrier, it will go to the target at a depth of over a kilometer. Along the way "Poseidon" will continuously maneuver on the course and depth. It is based on speed and depth of stroke "does the defeat of the drone is available today from a potential enemy means impossible," said the source, quoted by TASS.

The specialist added that "Poseidon", and missile-torpedo "Squall", will move at maximum speed in the hovercraft (around the device will form a cavity with water vapor) that significantly reduces the resistance of the medium.

According to another source in the defense industry, "Poseidon" will be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead with a capacity of up to two megatons to destroy the naval bases of the enemy.

Maximum underwater speed of modern nuclear submarines, about 60 kilometers per hour (30-35 knots) torpedoes in about 90 kilometers per hour (50 knots). Missile-torpedo "Squall" with the rocket engine can, according to various estimates, to go under water with a speed of 370 kilometers per hour (200 knots), but at a distance of just over 10 kilometers and at a shallow depth.

At the end of December last year, "Poseidon" went for trials at sea. Testing takes place in a special area, protected from intelligence services of other countries. As the carrier drone is one of nuclear submarines of the Russian Navy.
