The Power of the Russian Nuclear Horn (Daniel 7:7)

A video released by Russia’s defense ministry shows the submarine firing a salvo of four of the missiles within seconds of each other.

That means that together, the missiles fired by Russia had a minimum combine explosive potential of 2,400 kilotons, or about 160 times the destructive force that hit Hiroshima near the close of World War II, Hans Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project, estimated.

The missiles launched from a submerged submarine that is designed to operate in near silence, meaning the vessels could be virtually anywhere in the ocean at any time.

Due to the scale of Russia’s nuclear arsenal, the US has no practical means to defend against these or any other ICBMs.

The US also carries out routine testing of its nuclear systems, but rarely in salvos like Russia has.
