    March 19 is observed annually in Russia as the Day of the Submariner.

    Founded 111 years ago, Russia's submarine fleet now boasts scores of sleek and deadly submersible vessels armed with a wide range of torpedoes, cruise and ballistic missiles, capable of obliterating both naval and ground targets virtually anywhere in the world.
