In accordance with the combat training plan, the flagship of the Pacific Fleet, the Guards of the Order of Nakhimov, the missile cruiser Varyag in the Peter the Great Gulf, practiced conducting combat operations with a single ship and conducted an artillery fire exercise to suppress an invisible coastal target hidden by the terrain. The fire was conducted from a 130-mm AK-130 artillery mount.

A complex target position imitated long-term firing points, military equipment and engineering protection facilities of the coast of a simulated enemy.

Guiding the cruiser at targets and adjusting artillery fire was carried out using the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle complex.

After completing the attack on coastal targets, “Varyag” discovered a mock-up imitating a sea floating mine and destroyed it with the fire of a six-barreled 30-mm automatic artillery mount AK-630.

The ship continues to perform tasks in the combat training ranges of the fleet.
