    Twitter posts are deluded. I do not think the layperson realizes how exotic this technology is. The constant energy output for such long periods of time in a relatively safe fashion is astounding. Russia, thru work like this, is stepping back to the forefront of technological advancement.

    There were already such plans. The Russians even tested such a nuclear-powered jet engine on the Tu-95. However, I think that drones with unlimited range with miniature nuclear reactors may be created.
    Fitting a miniature reactor on a missile the size of Kh 101 is simply amazing.

    In fact, the main consequence of this is the possibility of creating spacecraft with nuclear reactors.

    Spaceplanes! Take off from an airport and fly into LEO.

    This indicates that despite Putin's statements, Burevestnik related activities will likely continue.

    What a fucking idiot... of course Putin must be lying... except if he is not then they just successfully tested a nuclear powered cruise missile... do they just pack up and leave or do they check the airspace it flew through to check for radiation levels?

    It is not just about making a new weapon but they have to check the effect of the weapon too so if it leaves lots of radiation in its wake then having it orbit away from Russian airspace... somewhere in the south atlantic or lower pacific oceans for a couple of months before heading to their target areas would be important. With no radiation released then orbit over Siberia for a couple of months before heading out to hit the west again and again and again.

    Of course it must be that Putin is lying and the missile crashed and they have to launch another test to get it right...   Rolling Eyes

    He is truly a verminous little cockroach with zero redeeming qualities...

    I don't know the guy but just looking at him... I reckon with those ears he can probably get the sky news channels anywhere in Australia... for free... that is redeeming isn't it?

    There are a number of issues that will have to be ironed out, in Kornev’s view, starting with the fact that cruise missiles are not designed to land safely without being destroyed. “Even during testing, it’s possible that this rocket could fall and be destroyed. In any case, the materials onboard can lead to radioactive contamination,” he warned.

    If they fit it with retractable undercarriage they could call it a drone... put 5 small nuke warheads on it and say it is designed to fly to the target area and loiter and release its bombs and then return to base so it does not count as a bomber or a ICBM or SLBM...

    Of course if it is 9m long then it would fit into the weapon bay of the Tu-160 and on the external weapon pylons of the Tu-95.

    Spaceplanes! Take off from an airport and fly into LEO.

    A Scramjet is a supersonic combustion ramjet, but a nuclear ramjet does not involve combustion so it could be supersonic too meaning a nuclear scramjet propulsion system could be used from runway to space and back...

    NATO Codename: SKYFALL

    Intercontinental missile "Burevestnik" successfully passed its last test. Yesterday, Vladimir Putin confirmed that the tests of a nuclear-powered missile had been successfully completed.

    “Its range is no longer measured in kilometers, but in months and years. At the required time it will be launched, it can approach the enemy in a month - from any direction. For example, attack targets in the United States through Mexico. Approach enemy targets through Antarctica. From anywhere,” military expert Alexander Khrolenko told Sputnik Live.

    "Burevestnik" is called the most mysterious product in the Russian military arsenal, since there is almost no information about it. However, the Americans tried to repeat the rocket. The project was called "Pluto", but the idea was abandoned.

    OTHER COMMENTS

    - A second strike weapon, that can fly for months, where the adversary can't detect its launch and the weapon is approaching its target on an unpredictable trajectory therefore unable to be tracked or shot down.

    - Reminds me of an episode of star trek TNG, where a civilization in a civil war had missiles that can travel at high warp and roam the space indefinitely, controlled by AI And can attack any planet after it receives command. I think Russia just developed an Earth equivalent😳

    - So in the future Russia won't need as many, if any, nuclear submarines in the seas, but perhaps hundreds of nuclear-powered cruise missiles up in or ready to go into 'safe' airspace, "standing by" for weeks or months? That gives the term "loitering munitions" a whole new meaning

    - Russia has already built nuclear powered torpedo's designed to carry a large enough nuclear warhead to create a tsunami and the US still thinks Russia wont use nukes

    who started working back in Soviet times, made another step forward.
    One step is some huuuuge understatement.

    We must understand that the financial and technological capabilities of the United States are such that if they want to, they will be able to catch up
    No

    Like with their hyped hypersonic missile that supposedly has only had glitches with detaching from the launch aircraft and other
    trivial problems. Yeah, right.

    The bias is transparent and inane. Anything Russia does is inferior, anything the US and some close minions do is glorious and
    the zenith of human achievement. This is WWII untermenschen hate propaganda.

    It's funny that the two losers of WWII (Germany and Japan) prospered after the war so it looked like they won. That is not off
    the mark. The exceptionalist ideology of the 1930s (which was true for Japan as well) was not defeated but got a progressive
    mask makeover. This should not be surprising since the ideology emerged from the USA and the UK. Social Darwinism and just
    good old European colonialist supremacy that Josep Borrell affirmed with his garden and jungle drivel.

    Anyway, in the real world it is now very hard for the US to be on the leading edge of technological development. The US was
    importing its scientific talent while Americans were badly educated and interested in money making, reflecting their culture.
    It seems this import process has peaked as 20,000 Chinese scientists and engineers have left the US recently.

    By contrast, Russia has not needed to import talent and can educate it domestically. It also has not suffered the massive
    brain drain that is endlessly claimed by western analists and Russian liberasts. The only people running away from Russia
    are those same liberast sycophants of the NATzO west.
