As part of the interspecific command and staff exercise to resolve crisis situations in the Arctic, which is taking place in the Northern Fleet under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, the ship’s search and strike group has worked out a series of anti-submarine missions in the near sea zone.

The crews of the small anti-submarine ships Snezhnogorsk, Brest and Yunga, in cooperation with the Il-38 aircraft and the Ka-27PL helicopter of the Northern Fleet anti-submarine aviation, carried out the search and tracking of the submarine enemy in the Barents Sea. They were opposed by a diesel-electric submarine of the Kola flotilla of diverse forces.

Anti-submarine sailors worked out the tactics of searching for a submarine in various ways using on-board sonar systems, as well as according to information from anti-submarine aviation pilots who set up barriers from hydroacoustic buoys in naval combat training ranges of the fleet. The crews of anti-submarine ships also worked out joint maneuvering, evading a torpedo attack, and conditional use of weapons against an underwater enemy.

Last week, in the same composition, the ship search and strike group of the Kola Flotilla of diverse forces conducted an exercise to repel air attack weapons of a mock enemy as part of a control check of combat training during the winter training period.

Small anti-submarine ships of project 1124 “Albatross”, which are in service with the Kola flotilla of diverse forces, are designed to search, track and destroy submarines in the near sea and coastal zones. They are equipped with AK-176M and AK-630M artillery systems, anti-submarine weapons – RBU-6000 rocket launchers and 533-mm torpedo tubes, and also have hydroacoustic and radio-technical weapons.
