Today the frigate of the Northern Fleet “Admiral of the Soviet Union Fleet Gorshkov” successfully fired the “Poliment-Redut” anti-aircraft missile system in the Barents Sea. The ship hit two target missiles delivered by the small missile ship “Iceberg”.

The firing control was carried out by the small rocket ship “Rassvet”. Four more ships of the Kola flotilla of heterogeneous forces: the small anti-submarine ships Brest and Snezhnogorsk, the base minesweepers Kolomna and Yadrin, ensured the closure of the sea area.
