In the Northern Fleet, a command and staff training (CST) began on the management of forces and troops in the Arctic strategic direction. It will last for several days.

The main task of the event is to work out the coordination of the work of the headquarters of all levels in the preparation and implementation of the decisions of the command to conduct operations to protect the interests and ensure the security of Russia in the Arctic.

It is planned to work out several training episodes, during which the knowledge and management skills of the command staff and staff officers will be assessed.

The first episode of the KST was an exercise on the comprehensive defense of the Northern Fleet headquarters from an attack by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of a simulated enemy. To this end, in the main base of the fleet – the city of Severomorsk – a battery of Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile-gun systems was deployed, the calculations of which worked out the defeat of the aircraft.

The Orlan reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle of the UAV regiment of the Air Force and Air Defense Army of the Northern Fleet was used as an air target. The combat crews of the Pantsir air defense missile system detected its flight several kilometers before the guarded object, took it for escort and conditionally fired to kill.

In parallel with the anti-aircraft gunners, the measures for the defense of the fleet headquarters from the UAV attack were worked out by the electronic warfare units, which suppressed the control signals of the unmanned aerial vehicle.
