(PatrioticPost.com)- Russia just showed off three new submarines in a propaganda video from the Russian Ministry of Defense and they are…pretty incredible.
The new video shows the submarines breaking through thick polar ice at the same time. The massive military machines rise straight through pristine white sheets of ice with no difficulty at all.
That’s pretty amazing.
If you keep watching the clip, you’ll see one of the officers from the submarines getting out of the craft and standing on top of the sail.
This looks like something from a movie, but it’s very real, and it shows just how powerful the Russian military is.
Listen to the sound of the ice cracking!
The clip finishes with Russian jet planes flying over an icy base, and military officers standing armed and ready.
If the Russian military is trying to send a message, then it’s not a positive one…
TASS, the Russian news agency, quoted the Commander in Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, who described how the submarines “surfaced from under the ice in a limited space with a radius of 300 meters for the first time in the history of the Russian Navy.”
And incredibly, one of the submarines isn’t even new. Reports suggest that a Delta IV-class submarine which was developed during the Soviet Cold War era, and is a nuclear-powered ballistic-missile submarine that can carry 16 nuclear ballistic missiles. These are the last-ever Soviet-built submarines, and the fact that they’re still in use today shows just how robust they were back then.
Another one of the submarines was also identified as a Delta-IV sub that had its missile silos removed to create more space on board, with that submarine’s purpose being underwater intelligence gathering.
This week it was also revealed how two Russian Navy MiG-31BM interceptors flew over the North Pole for the first time in history.
“Within the framework of an Arctic expedition for the first time ever in the history of Russian Navy a pair of MiG-31 jets performed a flight over the North Pole and were refueled in midair,” Admiral Yemenov told the press.
