Media Reports Russia Has Stronger and Deadlier Nuclear Submarine, Calls It the “Vlad Monster”


The Cold War arms race may be heating back up, at least if Russia’s newest submarine is any indication.

It’s called the Prince Vladimir — “Knyaz Vladimir” in Russian — and the British press has already dubbed it “Vlad’s Sea Monster” for its formidable capabilities.

While the United States Navy typically leads the world in submarine technology and abilities, the new Russian craft is giving America a run for its money, and may be a sign that Uncle Sam needs to step up its undersea game.

“The Knyaz Vladimir, or Prince Vladimir, can launch up to 20 nuclear warheads and dive to radar dodging depths of 400 metres (1312 feet), making it virtually undetectable,” reported the Daily Mail.
