In accordance with the plan for the combat training of the fleet in the training grounds located in the Baltic Sea, the ships of the fleet carried out artillery fire at targets imitating warships and air attack weapons of a conventional enemy.

The firing was carried out by the crews as part of the exercises on the drawing of an artillery battle with the surface ships of the simulated enemy, as well as in the conduct of combat with a single ship and air attack weapons. In addition to artillery firing by ships, electronic missile launches against air targets were worked out, which imitated airplanes and helicopters of the Baltic Fleet’s naval aviation.

In total, more than 15 warships of the fleet took part in the maneuvers, including the Boiky and Savvy corvettes, the small missile ships Sovetsk, Mytishchi, Zeleny Dol, Serpukhov, Passat, missile boats, as well as small anti-submarine ships, base and raid minesweepers.

Along the way, the crews of the ships worked out the tasks of searching for and tracking the submarines of the imaginary enemy, depth-throwing and mine laying were performed.

A ship sweeping group consisting of base and raid minesweepers will work out combat exercises in control and reconnaissance search for mines using contact trawls, destroy mines with naval weapons, and escort a detachment of ships along a safe fairway.

When performing the firing, the personnel of the radio-technical combat units of the ships, in cooperation with the combat crews of the artillery, worked out the issues of repelling strikes by guided weapons. They carried out the setting of false targets with a complex of passive jamming of the near line.

In addition to firing, the elements of organizing interaction and communication between ships, anti-sabotage actions during parking in an unprotected roadstead, as well as joint maneuvering at different times of the day were worked out.

In the near future, battleships, boats and support vessels of the Baltic Fleet, having completed their missions in the naval ranges of the fleet, will begin returning to their permanent bases stationed in the Kaliningrad region.
