With Russia’s Vostok-2018 war games are now in full swing, reaching its mid-point Friday, and set to conclude September 17, more dramatic footage of the epic size of the military exercise has been released through official state sources. This included video of a major Friday naval operation on the Bering Sea — the vast but strategically key expanse of water separating Alaska and Russia.

The military exercise kicked off in Russia’s far east on Tuesday, involving 300,000 troops and close to 40,000 military vehicles. It’s been billed as the most expansive war games on Russian soil since 1981 under the Soviet Union.

It further includes 1,000 aircraft, two Russian naval fleets and all airborne units, along with a contingent from China, and a Mongolian troop deployment.

And to be expected the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) is keen to advertise to the United States and the West — with which Moscow has been experiencing soaring tensions especially this week as new severe tensions have been announced by the White House — just what Russian firepower, warships, and air power can do to an enemy on the battlefield.

On Thursday President Vladimir Putin personally inspected the war games, and said in a speech to soldiers that he would bolster and strengthen the Russian army with a “new generation of weapons and equipment,” according to Reuters.
