How The Usa Transports Nuclear Weapons

Recommended Posts

Watch as the glorious American army transports a nuclear weapon ... and one of the escorting trucks rear-ends the weapon-carrying truck:

According to the person who recorded the footage:

"the fed pulled over and was yelling and waving his hands that I can't record this video. And then a truck rear-ended the nuke."

Hilarious.

Ooops.

At least the glorious Russia manages its military nuclear assets carefully and professionally.

I give you , for example, the rusting Russian submarine K-159. Just before it sank, during transportation, and now apparently too deep to salvage, complete with it's rusting nuclear reactor on board.

Aren't these nuclear convoys just a bit of theatre aimed at the populace?

Given Bond villains don't actually exist surely the biggest threat, in this country, would be from scrap metal thieving pikeys if they parked in a lay by too long.

Probably. The real nukes are probably shipped in someones boot and covered in a pile of oily rags and old polythene bags.

I've got a bit bored with trainspotting now, but for a while I used to pop down to my local station every week to take pictures of the nuclear flask train from Dungeness; most often it was two Class 37s but occasionally two Class 20s and on occasion a 37/20 combo. It's a piece of cake to find them; they're on the realtimestrains website as Dungeness to Crewe Coal Sidings, and they nearly always go up the Catford Loop Line.

I've never been hassled by plod for it, but I did once have a run-in with someone waiting for a train who objected to having his picture taken (see public photography thread from a couple of weeks ago).

Probably just 66s now :(

It's ok the weapons aren't dangerous....

The nuclear weapons taken by road from Coulport near Faslane to Burghfield in Berkshire are still armed!

I know a scientist who did some experiment at CERN that required him to transport radioactive material across the border to Germany. He just put it in the boot of his car and was going to drive! The CERN people stopped him and warned him that EU border crossings had radiation sensors on them to stop terrorist attacks. As CERN had installed them they gave him a useful map of them so he could avoid them!

Carry on Nuclear Scientist?

Russian submarine K-159.

Yawn. I'm sure we can all post similar mistakes from ALL the countries in the world. Every country has too many to list.

This thread was specifically about the incident in the video, not a wider discussion about mistakes in general or about Russia (which you have bizarrely introduced for no apparent reason).

Also, my incident was actually funny (hence the tone of the original post). The incident you mention cost 9 people their lives and is not funny in any way.

Yawn. I never said the Russian incident was funny.

And the US incident was no big deal, hardly worthy of a thread of its own.

You really are a lame shill.

Gosh, that is horrific.

Indeed it is. And as the reactor is decaying at the bottom of the sea, it is likely in the long term to kill many more innocent people, including non-Russians.

Funny, but Errol's glorious Russia doesn't seem to be bothered fixing the problem. Not that he wants any one to talk about it in his precious thread.
