Gnarly boat. Kind of like the Typhoon when it first rolled out.

ime sure as an alternative to star wars something along the lines of electronic counter measures from space has been considered,theres so much money power and national security associated with rocket launches .so what was that thing the us had orbiting the china sea for so long?thay dont want to say anything about that one.

WW3 will break out well before 2018. Sad to say.

The US/Saudi/Israeli attack front is a warm-up to attack on Iran, and that in turn is part of the global plan to isolate Russia into submission or beat it into submission.

We cannot rule out the possibility of the United States interfering with the electronic systems during these missile tests. I imagine that such interfering could be performed from great distances, including high above in earth orbit. This possibility is probably being considered, in
light of the number of failed test flights.

Well done Russia, a very very impressive submarine and no doubt faultless, even though you say the missile failed.

This sub looks very impressive.
Howe ver world peace is now in a state of flux.
This sub may not get to make an impact.

Unl ess this is the intended message, for I have great respect for Russian strategic think tanks.
