There are fears that everyone’s favourite on-screen bad guys, the Russians, are developing a range of nuclear projects in real life, including new missiles and bunkers, prompting fears that they’re planning to finally round off the long anticipated trilogy of World Wars.
According to the Daily Star – who are big fans of World War 3 – U.S. spies have evidence that Russian officials are revamping a number of nuclear shelters that could function as command-and-control bunkers.
Most notably, construction is believed to have begun in the Ural mountains at Mount Yamantau, which intelligence officers believe houses a vast underground base where the Russian military and government could hide from the nuclear war.
Another concern is Russia’s latest ‘super weapon,’ the Satan-2 ICBM, which is essentially a scaled down Death Star, can allegedly wipe out an area the size of France quicker than you can say ‘Alderaan’.
Not content with developing weapons that’d give Doctor Strangelove a pretty sizeable erection, Russia’s military has also unveiled plans for a new bomber that the Star claim can drop bombs from outer space.
But why would Russia’s most famous pin-up and president Vladimir Putin risk nuclear Armageddon considering how bad for one’s health nuclear flames tend to be?
Well, apparently, the Russian leader is still a bit sore about the collapse of the Soviet Union and, like a megalomaniacal Gene Simmons, he wants to metaphorically ‘get the band back together’, often against the wishes of the countries he’s trying to recruit.
NATO have supposedly been attempting to curb Russia’s recent aggression in the only logical way and are building up their forces on Russia’s borders – you know, because an arms war worked so well at preventing World War One…
