The cost of the machine exceeds two billion US dollars.
The boat starts her mission and the commander is ready to execute the presidential order to do the unthinkable – the order to launch the missiles. It is not a sort of training anymore – they are on mission… In short, this episode of the Mighty Ships series is a nice video for every lover of the underwater fleet and Navy facilities.
