Thought I read somewhere they're swapping out the P-700s on the Oscars for 48 Oniks. Imagine what one Oscar with 48 nuclear-armed Oniks parked off Virginia could do in about 5 minutes.
I thought it was 3 Oniks per P-700?

That's what I would think but the number I recall was 48. 3 would bump that to 72.

It's indeed 72. And in case of nuke land attack one should look at 3M-14, not at P-800. Slowed indeed, but proper CM with thousands km range and stuff.

Not Putin said, but was said to Putin by second rank captain during visit to ship. And not "will carry" but "may potentially carry in the future"
