Full Title: BIG BEAST Putin warns that Satan-2 missile has completed final tests and can now lay waste to an area the size of England and Wales
VLADIMIR Putin has revealed the feared Satan-2 nuclear missile has been successfully tested and is nearly ready to be deployed.
The Russian strongman announced his most powerful nuke said to be capable of evading any defence system has passed a rigorous round of tests.
The Sarmat known in the West as Satan-2 is seen as Russia's most powerful nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile.
Just one of them contains eight megatons of TNT-equivalent explosive power.
That is more than 400 times as strong as either bomb the US dropped on Japan in the final days of World War Two. This means they are capable of pulverising an area the size of England and Wales or Texas...

Don’t you think that we (the US) also tinker in our garage ?
Ironic. I just watched a movie about the aftermath of a nuclear war, called, aptly, “Aftermath”.
More realistic plot for the war than usual. Jihadis take control of Pakistan’s nukes and all hell spins out of control.
Either way, looks like a pretty miserable way to die over several months so I’d just as soon not have a nuclear war please :)
No one wants a nuclear war. It’s just that they all want nuclear weapons so they can have a means of negotiation.
Which proves the point I made in post 6.
It’s just sometimes things have a way of just spinning out of control, especially if a large power starts losing a conventional war.
Or insane muslims get control of Pakistan.
I don’t know how easy or difficult it is to use nukes once you take over a government.
I assume there’s codes and more codes that different people hold as some kind of defense against this sort of thing.
But not all missiles need codes to launch, I guess
“Or insane muslims get control of Pakistan.”
I’m more worried about the insane muslims that have taken control of places like the UK.
What a waste of money, and less people to pay for it. http://windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2019/04/pensioners-largest-problem-for-state.html
Just another Armata:
Russia’s new high-tech battle tank has ground to a halt during a rehearsal for 9 May Victory parade in Moscow, prompting speculation of a breakdown.
One of T-14 Armata tanks suddenly stopped on Red Square, and the driver raised a red flag - apparently to signal that he had problems.
A tow vehicle was brought in, but the tank later managed to drive on.
The parade announcer said the stoppage had been planned to show how to “evacuate weaponry”.
This prompted laughter from the crowds who gathered to watch the rehearsal in the Russian capital, Reuters reports.
The enemy within.
Higher yield has an exponentially diminishing return.
Far better to have ten one megaton nukes than one ten.
of course we do, but we rarely admit our bluff by throwing parties for our toys. Either Puttie’s vanity, puffed up by China and Germany, is going to his head again, (it will be his downfall) or maybe he’s playing fox to NK, who’s had ants in their pants of late.
The Russians tested a 50 megaton bomb in 1961.
They dropped it from 34,000 feet, over a cluster of Russian islands, north of the Arctic Circle.
It descended for three minutes with a parachute, then detonated at 12,500 feet.
The thermal pulse burned off a coat of protective white paint on the bomber and the chase plane, which were 30 miles away and 4 miles above the explosion.
Andrei Sakharov helped design the bomb. Soon after the test, he resigned from weapons research and became a human rights activist.
OK, I know we're talking nuclear weapons here but what kind of idiot names them after the Prince of Darkness? I mean really, it kind of broadcasts your frame of mind right off the bat. And what happened to the Satan 1 Missile? What? It wasn't EVIL enough for them or something? Man! You just can't make this stuff up.
Satan is a western nickname. "Sarmat" was probably taken from the Sarmatians who occupied the Ural Mountains around the 5th century.
The usual wonky "journalists" math. Just because the bomb is 400 times more powerful doesn't mean you can also scale up the destructive area by a factor of 400...
“This means they are capable of pulverising an area the size of England and Wales or Texas...”
More “fake news” proof!
8 megatons can't even come close to doing that. Maybe these tabloid Brits should open a science book sometime.
