Crews of small artillery ships (IAC) “Astrakhan”, “Volgodonsk” and “Makhachkala” of the Caspian flotilla carry out a complex of artillery firing as part of the delivery of elements of the course task K-2 in the sea ranges of the Caspian Sea.

In the course of performing fire missions, the crews hit sea and coastal targets from the A-190 “Universal” artillery mounts, and the air targets from the AK-306 anti-aircraft artillery systems (30-mm six-barreled automatic shipborne artillery mount) and AK 630-M2 “Duet” …

In addition, the crews of the IAC perform the tasks of mine protection of ships, their defense when parked in an unprotected roadstead, as well as a set of measures to develop tactics for conducting combat operations with single ships.

Also, during the naval exercises, sailors regularly conduct trainings on fighting for the damage of the ship on the move, repelling air strikes and anti-ship missiles of a conventional enemy.

The analysis and assessment of combat training missions performed at sea will be carried out by the command after the ships return to the flotilla basing points.

For reference:

Coursework task K-2 – preparation of the ship for use as intended, that is, the organization of the combat employment of the ship, the use of its weapons. As part of the course task, the degree of readiness of the crew and the materiel of each ship is assessed to carry out tasks at sea for their intended purpose, as well as to conduct a single battle in various operational and tactical conditions.
