This is coolbert:
SIX! Status-6 that is. Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile, Range unlimited and unstoppable!
If it works!
"deep six - - To hide or dispose of something in such a way that it will be extremely difficult or impossible to find or recover, even for the person doing the hiding"
FOUR tests and FOUR failures! Thanks to the article by Amanda Macias courtesy CNBC.
"Russia is preparing to search for a nuclear-powered missile that was lost at sea months ago after a failed test"
"A nuclear-powered Russian missile remains lost at sea after a failed test late last year, and Moscow is preparing to try to recover it, according to people with direct knowledge of a U.S. intelligence report."
"Crews will attempt to recover a missile that was test launched in November and landed in the Barents Sea, which is located north of Norway and Russia. The operation will include three vessels, one of which is equipped to handle radioactive material from the weapon's nuclear core. There is no timeline for the mission, according to the people with knowledge of the report."

Plus and as understood such a missile A DANGER TO THE USER EVEN WHEN NOT USED IN A COMBAT SITUATION.
DIFFICULTIES WITH SUCH A WEAPON SYSTEM THE MINUS FAR EXCEEDS THE PLUS? A SPEW OF RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION CREATES MORE PROBLEMS THAN GAIN?
P.S: A thousand apologies to all devoted readers of the blog. This missing nuclear cruise missile is not the Status-6. This missile is the Burevestnik. Status-6 is the nuclear-powered and nuclear armed autonomous torpedo.
