Ships of the Pacific Fleet continue to practice elements of the second course task (K-2) at sea and improve the skills of conducting naval combat with a single ship.

The newest minesweeper of the Pacific Fleet “Yakov Balyaev”, which was accepted into the fleet in December last year, and the corvette “Sovershenny”, as part of an air defense exercise, used artillery mounts to destroy air targets dropped by parachute. Their actions were supported by the Il-38 anti-submarine aircraft of the Pacific Fleet. Another task that the minesweeper successfully solved was the destruction of a mock-up of a naval floating mine by artillery fire.

Another corvette of the Primorsky flotilla of heterogeneous forces – “Loud” – from the universal shipborne artillery installation A-190 fired at suppressing an invisible coastal target. The ship hit targets that imitated the equipment and firing points of the conditional enemy, which was confirmed by objective control data obtained from the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle.
