UK Tabloids Raise Alarm Over Russian Nuclear Subs Conducting ‘Sinister’ Deep Dive Ops in Atlantic

The Borei-class submarine is a nuclear-powered ballistic missile-carrying boat with up to 16 Bulava nuclear missiles onboard. Russia currently has four of these subs in its arsenal, with a fifth expected to be commissioned in October and at least five more to be completed after that.

British tabloid outlets The Mirror and The Sun have expressed hyperbole-filled concerns about the significance of Russian Borei-class subs’ alleged deep-dive operations in the far north.

In a piece about the “mysterious ‘deep penetration’ missions” on Sunday, The Mirror reported that “large numbers of Borei-class subs were diving to depths greater than 500 metres in the Norwegian Sea in a possible “bid to enter the Atlantic undetected.”
The Sun was even more alarmist in its reporting, calling the alleged missions “sinister.”

The Mirror erroneously reported that Borei-class subs are “believed to be capable of carrying new Zircon 3M22 hypersonic missiles, which can cover 2.7 km per second and against which there is thought to be little or no protection.”
