RT Documentary Channel has produced a TV series about ruthless naval exercise of Russia’s Baltic Fleet ‘Soobrazitelny’ (designated frigate by NATO) opposite Northern Fleet diesel-electric sub ‘Magnitogorsk’ (Project 877 Halibut, NATO designation Improved Kilo class).

Advanced sophisticated stealth warship against one of the world’s most silent submarines dubbed ‘black hole’ by Western white hats.
