Business Insider: Russia's Navy is making a big bet on new, smaller warships loaded with missiles
* The fleet Russia inherited from the Soviet Union quickly fell into disrepair after the Cold War. * But Moscow has invested heavily in its Navy over the past two decades. * The result is a growing and modern force that poses unique challenges to NATO militaries.
The Russian Navy has been busy.
It's stepping up operations in the Arctic, expanding its presence in Africa and the Middle East, and keeping a close eye on NATO around Europe.
It's also making progress on a number of high-profile shipbuilding projects. It plans to commission or receive six new submarines — three of them nuclear-powered — by the end of this year and expects to receive a fully modernized Kirov-class nuclear battlecruiser and to begin sea trials for its only aircraft carrier by the end of 2022.
