Unconfirmed Anonymous Report: Russia Developing Kamikaze Nuke Tanks
For when you want to kill *everyone*
How badass is Russia's T-14 Armata tank? Unmanned turret, active suspension, armored crew capsule, and soon also: a 152mm main gun (allegedly) capable of firing nuclear fusion projectiles.
Wait — what? Nuclear shells?
Yea. We're reading it's a 'nuclear low-fission, high-fusion sub kiloton tank round for tactical use on the battlefield'.
Pardon? Have the Russians finally gone completely mad?
Delving deeper into this article published by The Diplomat, it turns out this wild claim is based on "unconfirmed media reports". No link to these reports is given. For all we know the source is the weekly newsletter of the Krasnodar Dungeons and Dragons Society.
So maybe Russian tanks aren't going to be clearing RPG nests with nukes just yet. Nor will tank crews be riding into battle on atomic bombs.
Yes, sadly, we may have to wait a bit longer for something as insane as a direct fire nuclear shell.
