Voyage of the Damned, The Russian 2nd Pacific Squadron

This is the hilarious story of the Russian 2nd Pacific Squadron. This fleet sailed on to their doom despite attacks from phantom Japanese torpedo boats. They valiantly fired on British fishing trawlers armed with fishing nets (doing almost as much damage to themselves). In sailing around Africa the decided to turn the fleet into a floating zoo. They also converted their ships into floating fuel air bombs by coating everything in coal dust. McHale's Navy had nothing on the comedic episodes of this fleet.

Today Russia's navy maintains these high standards.
