    Why are people using the retarded media label of "drone" for interconinental tropedoes?

    Because unlike torpedo, it operates independently once launched and can be controlled more efficiently.

    Explosive payload is option for any drone so that doesn't factor in definition.

    I read also that Putin has announced an online competition to name Russia's new underwater nuclear drone

    One showed the underwater nuclear drone, which Putin announced did not have a name, and that people were welcome to submit their suggestions to the defence ministry website.

    During Gen assembly speech VV Putin asked Russians to suggest names for new weapons.
    One of them is. Tadaam -  underwater,nuclear powered drone, with intercontinental range.

    does it ring the bell? So Status-6 officially confirmed. Smile
    BTW it looks like nuke torpedo can also attack ships...being on 1 km depth makes it invulnerable against and existing ASW stuff.

    One of suggestions on YT: let's call torpedo a HAMMER and Avangard SICKLE

    However I would suggest to call the whole system:

    Sub     - Nautilius Pompilius
    drone  - Goodby Amerika

    Another interesting issue is which type of submarine will carry this drone/torpedo. Maybe a modified Oscar class (from the video submarine resembles Oscar class more) ??
