  • In 1834 Russia invented the first metal submarine, their first step in becoming one of the world's greatest naval powers. Witness the amazing 1928 rescue of Umberto Novella and his expedition by Russian seamen aboard the icebreaker Krasid; dramatic footage of the Chalouskin as walls of ice crush and sink its metal hull; battles with the mighty Japanese armada; and the introduction of nuclear submarines and their powerful cousins, the aircraft carrier.
