Russia’s “ace” hidden beneath the Arctic ice puts the opponent in checkmate in the event of a nuclear attack.
Russia has a “trump card” lurking under the ice in the Arctic in case an adversary like the US or NATO conducts a nuclear attack in conflict of nations. China’s Sohu page has an article on this issue.
Accordingly, last year, the Russian Navy shocked the world with large-scale military exercises in the Arctic waters to test the combat capabilities of strategic nuclear forces in military time zone.
During this exercise, three Russian strategic nuclear missile submarines penetrated the thick ice and simultaneously emerged at a predetermined point. The above action was done professionally, very quickly.
Even American military experts are forced to admit that Russian nuclear submarines can quickly surface anywhere in the Arctic, at any time of day or night, to launch missiles. strategic nucleus.
“You should not think that the technology to break the ice cover is simple. During the exercises in the Arctic, the Americans tried to repeat the operation of Russian submarines, and the results were very frustrating.”
“The US submarine only penetrated part of the ice and could not launch missiles. While the sailors tried to bring the rest of the hull to the surface, the bottom part was frozen. Thus, the US submarine was damaged. blocked in tape,” the Sohu newspaper stated.
The Chinese-language publication emphasizes that today no country in the world can detect a Russian strategic nuclear submarine lurking under the ice in the Arctic.
Considering the fact that the strategic submarines are still combat-ready and can attack the enemy at any time, we can say that the Russian Federation has a powerful trump card hidden in the Arctic in the near future. case of a US nuclear attack.
Without a doubt, these weapons are a very important deterrent for the US or any other NATO country if it intends to take military action against Russia.
“At present, Russia continues to strengthen its borders in the Arctic, asserting its unique position in the Arctic Ocean. Even the United States, with its powerful economic and military potential, cannot keep up with Russia here,” the Sohu newspaper wrote according to military time schedule.
Focusing on building a strategic nuclear submarine force with missiles is also a way that the Russian Navy has long pursued to eliminate losses in surface ships compared to the US Navy and NATO in conflict of interest policy.
With a strategic missile launched from the North Pole, it will reach the target in the fastest time and disable all interceptors due to the extremely short reaction time.
The biggest advantage of Russian nuclear submarines compared to the US is their large size, a 20,000-ton battleship, of course, will easily penetrate thick ice much better than a ship with a displacement of only 6-7 thousand tons.
According to comments from international military experts, in the near future, the US and NATO cannot come up with an effective plan to combat Russia’s “trump card” under the Arctic ice.
