The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov, performing missions in the Barents Sea, has worked out interaction with anti-submarine aircraft. Sailors and pilots trained in a joint search for imaginary enemy submarines.

The Il-38 aircraft of a separate mixed air regiment of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Northern Fleet was involved in the training. Its crew was engaged in setting up an anti-submarine barrier from hydroacoustic buoys and issued target designation to the cruiser’s command post.

The cruiser’s combat crews worked out the search for a submarine and the conditional use of onboard anti-submarine weapons on it.

On February 9, the RRC “Marshal Ustinov” left the main base of the Northern Fleet – Severomorsk to carry out complex combat training tasks. The crew of the ship completed a number of elements of the course of combat training of a surface ship at sea, and also conducted exercises on the anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defense of a conventional detachment of ships and vessels. This exit to the sea became the second longest voyage of the cruiser in 2021.

In January, the RRC “Marshal Ustinov” under the command of Captain 2nd Rank Andrei Krivoguzov carried out training artillery fire at coastal, sea and air targets. The ship traveled several hundred nautical miles, and also worked out interaction with aviation in the framework of anti-submarine missions.
