- "But there's nothing in Vladovin. It's just ice."
"That's funny. Could've sworn there was a secret Russian naval base where they retrofitted Cold War submarines. Well, technically, it's not Russian anymore. Base was taken over by a terror group of military separatists about a month ago and the Russians haven't taken it back yet, so there is a little window of opportunity here."
- ―Ramsey and Mr. Nobody
Vladovin is an isolated region of Russia. It housed a military base that retrofitted submarines during the Cold War.
During the Cold War, a base was created in Vladovin to retrofit nuclear submarines. Since the end of the Cold War, it was owned the Russian military. However, a month before Submarine Mission, the military base was seized by a terror group of military separatists. Since then, the Russian military was unsuccessful in recapturing the base.
The gang travel to Vladovin after learning of the military base housing a submarine that they know Dom and Cipher would be going after. After calling all bets off the gang choose their cars and travel by plane where they stake out the area and then see Dom using the EMP to shut off the submarine so Cipher can take control.
Dom escapes to a rendezvous point while Cipher controls the sub while the crew try to stop her which they do by pulling trigger chips which stop her from pulling off a nuclear attack.
The gang attempt to flee in their cars with the submarine and corrupt Russian agents coming after them. After Dom is reassured that his son is safe with Deckard Shaw he kills Cipher's right hand man and then flees to rejoin his group. Together they work to stop the agents coming after them before Dom tricks Cipher into putting a heat seeker on him which he uses to aim it at the submarine which it blows up, putting an end to Cipher's plans. Dom reunites with his group and they return to New York.
