Russia has mistakenly leaked terrifying plans for a massive nuclear torpedo during a broadcast on state tv.

The 100 megaton weapon would be launched from a nuclear powered submarine, producing a tsunami up to 500m high that would destroy life up to 930 miles inland of the United States. And that is not even taking into account the radiation it would also emit.

The leak occurred during a report regarding President Vladimir Putin meeting his military generals in the city of Sochi. To make matters more embarrassing for the former lead nation of the Soviet Union, the report was aired by one of their own state run media outlets.

The document that was seen in view read that the nuke is designed to:

destroy important economic installations of the enemy in coastal areas and cause guaranteed devastating damage to the country’s territory by creating wide areas of radioactive contamination, rendering them unusable for military, economic or other activity for a long time”

Spokesman for Putin, Dmitry Peskov, has said of the leak:

It’s true some secret data got into the shot, therefore it was subsequently deleted

In future we will undoubtedly take preventive measures so this does not happen again.”

But given a state run newspaper also discussed details of a massive radioactive device, speculation is rife that the leak might not have been such an accident.

Whether it is a genuine leak, or an attempt at intimidation, Russia has just emphasized that they are not to be fucked with.
