Default Putin's 100th Anniversary Fleet Review

Visited St Petersburg for Putin's Fleet Review to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the October Revolution. Permitted to take plenty of photos, some close up. Tremendous public enthusiasm and pride in the Fleet. The Baltic Fleet, reinforced by units from the Northern Fleet were on display. Have some great photos to share. Oops - must reduce file sizes and remember how to upload images.

Flagship of the Northern Fleet 'Peter the Great' - able to get up close right under the bow. Expected to be turned away by Russian Security forces but fortunately they didn't seem to see us

Excellent photos, certainly picked the right place for the review. SPB is a fantastic backdrop.

Does anyone know how many Typhoon Class vessels are still in service?

Just this one vessel, which serves primarily as a test platform for the Bulava missile.
