Russia observes March 19 as Submariner’s Day, because it’s submarine fleet was founded 112 years ago on this date. It was on March 19, 1906 that Russian Emperor Nicholas II included new combat ships – submarines – into the classification of naval vessels. Today, Russia’s underwater fleet consists of strategic nuclear and multi-purpose submarines armed with ballistic missiles and sea-launched cruise missiles.
