Russia has now announced their newest “Nightmare’ train, which is actually a railway based nuclear launcher that will have NATO on high alert. The stealth nuke launcher is actually disguised as a regular passenger train, however, instead of passengers it is filled with nuclear weapons.
At any time, the train can be stopped, and a deployment of nuclear missile launchers will appear. While this may sound like something out a Die Hard Film, the trains are no longer a work of fiction, and if you view the test launch below, you can see for yourself.
If World War III were to start, these undetectable missiles will be ready at a moments notice. Each of the trains is packed with six, yes you read that right, six RS-24 Yars missiles which carry 4 massive 250 kiloton warheads each with a range of 6,800 miles!
In the past year, Russia has been reported to have amped up their nuclear capabilities as they have been testing hypersonic warheads that could reach Britain in a matter of minutes. This newest invention, or the ‘nightmare’ train, is expected to be ready by 2018, and many have said that it is second to none.
Putin has also spoken of plans to create other killer nukes to add to their arsenal, one of which they refer to as “Satan 2” which experts believe could “wipe out” the entire East Coast of the U.S.
For now, it would seem very unlikely that the U.S and Russia would go to war, due to Putin stating his willingness to negotiate with President Elect Donald Trump in order to work towards peace. However, in recent days, President Obama has been working to counteract such acts of peace. There are also tensions that remain between Russia and NATO, so for now, we can only continue to hope for peace, and keep ourselves informed of current events.
