The patron saint of... what?

Anyone familiar with the Roman Catholic and the various Orthodox faiths knows that there is a plethora of patron saints for nearly every conceivable circumstance and occupation. Astronauts,
artillerymen, bakers, tailors, and salesmen all have their own patron saints. Now there's a new one: St. Fyodor Ushakov, Russian Orthodox patron saint of the Russian long-range nuclear bomber fleet. (via Marginal Revolution)

Words fail me.
