The Big Russian Navy Exercise of 2013
Russian naval warships, submarines berthed at port in the eastern city of Vladivostok on Sept. 5, 2012. /AP Wired has a good article discussing the upcoming big Russian Naval exercise. The Russian navy is about to stage its largest war exercise in a long time — possibly the largest since before the breakup of the Soviet Union. It’s a chance for President Vladimir Putin to show off his military might, of course.
