Step on board a corvette warship and take a deep sea submarine dive with Russia's famous Baltic Fleet. These two Russian Navy vessels are facing off against each other in a tense competition to win in a military exercise. Pick your side!
Russia’s Baltic Fleet was formed in 1703 under Peter the Great and is the oldest formation in the Russian Navy. Throughout its history, it has fought in many military conflicts, defending its country’s borders and perfecting its battle techniques. Today it boasts the most modern vessels, formidable weaponry and experienced seamen the Russian Navy has to offer. Meet the crews of two of its vessels, the corvette Soobrazitelny and the submarine Magnitogorsk, to learn more about life in the Baltic Fleet.
Joining the crew of Magnitogorsk, commanded by Captain Vladimir Nagornov, you'll find out about the procedures required for diving and surfacing, as well as certain superstitions shared by those on board. You'll also learn about the jobs required to keep the boat operational, how a submarine locates its targets covertly and discover more about the torpedoes it carries.
Aleksandr Slonov, Commander of Soobrazitelny, and his crew will take you along to a military parade, give you a guided tour of the ship and explain how the corvette's missiles are launched. With marines joining its ranks, you'll get the opportunity to accompany them to an armoured vehicle test track, where you can pick up some tips about how to handle these impressively versatile vehicles.
In the end, the two crews will engage in a competition to determine which of them is the best-prepared and most skilled in military combat. Pick your side and may the best team win.

К 110-й годовщине создания Подводного флота России // Минобороны России. 19.03.2016.
19 марта в ВС РФ празднуется День моряка-подводника.
Ровно 110 лет назад, 19 (6) марта 1906 г. по указу императора Николая II в классификацию судов военного флота был включен новый класс кораблей – подводные лодки. Этим же указом в состав Российского флота были включены первые десять подводных лодок.
В этот день Россия чествует тех, для кого подводный флот стал судьбой, кто привык жить по законам подводного братства, кто утверждал славные традиции подплава и тех, кто с честью приумножает их в своей служебной деятельности ныне.
