A parade of submarines and warships of the Russian Pacific Fleet was held in the Gulf of Amur, a home to the Fleet’s main base, on Sunday to mark Russian Navy Day. People who watched the parade could trace the history of Russian fleet from first sailing vessels to powerful modern ships.
Another theatrical show was staged at the water sport station of the Russian Pacific Fleet.
Marines, commando units and crews of submarine-hunting ships demonstrated their skills. Spectators also had a chance to see the capabilities of arms and military hardware of the Russian Pacific Fleet.
