    If you are hitting CBGs that means that you are in nuclear war. So in that case there is no point in wasting nuclear weapons on secondary targets like CBGs, save them for cities because those are targets that matter.

    Well no, this is a Russian weapon... so it might be used to hit CBGs attacking the Russian mainland... and carriers can't move as fast as planes so it could drop a 2MT payload on its way past a carrier group at 1,000m depth that detonates after 10 minutes so the Poseiden can exit the blast area before the explosion destroys the carrier group... the drone zipping through at 80 knots might not even slow down to drop the payload...

    Or it might drop a payload well ahead of the group and then another just under so that whether the group stop or rapidly accelerate it will still get munted.

    The drone could then continue on to the US mainland to take out a port or sail up a river... or into the panama canal.

    Or merely end of beginning of climate change... Cool

    Global warming ended by nuclear winter... that can be Trumps re-election promise...

    it is autonomous drone, but I guess can be applied in guided mode.

    Could use a towed antenna array to receive messages.
