Russia’s Used-to-Be Marine Forces

A great nation with an even greater heritage of its own. And I don’t even mean the cultural heritage but the military heritage that the Soviet Union had left behind to be heartily embosomed by successors of the fortune. Country that is half encircled by the sea and that has
always been a high-shot in the top of sea-lover countries gradually (well, it could has also been ‘rapidly,’ cause no matter what it doesn’t inflict a wrench to the story) began striking aground in terms of its marine power without even anchoring it.

1987 was the year when the first 350 tons ground effect "ship" from the series of Soviet battle missile carriers was produced.

classification). Hitting four of them causes inevitable sinking of a vessel of any know type and size.

I don't know guys, maybe someone can use that, so we published. Inside we have one more infographics.
