In the Caspian flotilla, air defense duty forces took part in an exercise to detect unidentified air targets and to repel air strikes. The servicemen have worked out the methods of the integrated use of air defense forces and means of a ship formation.

According to the concept of the training event, a massive approach of a simulated enemy aircraft was detected by means of radio surveillance. The ships were made ready for the use of air defense systems, the combat crews complied with the standards for receiving and analyzing data on the air situation. Also on the ships were activated means of electronic and visual camouflage to misinform the air enemy.

Air targets were destroyed by electronic launches from the Palash and Palma anti-aircraft missile and artillery systems, as well as from the AK-630 and AK 630-M2 Duet artillery mounts.

In total, more than 10 surface ships and boats of the flotilla were involved in the exercise, including the Dagestan rocket ship, the Uglich, Volgodonsk, Makhachkala and Astrakhan small missile and artillery ships.
