The personnel of the airborne assault units of the Caspian Flotilla marines rehearsed an episode of the military sports festival dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy. Marines in the coastal strip of the Caspian Sea have worked out the elements of a dynamic display of the combat capabilities of the coastal forces.

In the course of training, “black berets” on high-speed boats BL-820, in order to suppress the firing points of the conditional enemy, seized a bridgehead. Then on the unequipped coast from landing boats (DK) of project 11770 of the “Serna” type on standard equipment (armored personnel carriers BTR-70M and BTR-82A) by the way of the amphibious assault landed. After leaving the tweendeck, the armored personnel carriers overcame about 200 m of the water barrier, while firing from large-caliber machine guns at a conditional enemy on the shore.

The marines will demonstrate their skills in landing and maneuvering on the water for the audience on July 25, the Day of the Russian Navy, on the embankment of Kaspiysk. The battle for the landing, the seizure of the beachhead on the shore will traditionally be the most spectacular episode of the military sports festival.

Before the start of training on the water, the drivers of armored vehicles underwent special training at training complexes, training grounds and autodromes. They have perfectly mastered the control of combat vehicles on land and in water.

More than 100 servicemen of the marines and about 25 units of standard wheeled, special and military equipment, which are in service with the coastal forces of the flotilla, are involved in the training.

Preparations for the celebration of the Day of the Navy are taking place in strict compliance with a set of measures to counter the spread of coronavirus infection, aimed at preserving the life and health of military personnel, civilian personnel and their families.

100% of the personnel of the crews of ships and vessels that flew were vaccinated in advance with two components of the drug “Gam-COVID-Vac” (“Sputnik-V”). All are fully provided with personal protective equipment (gloves, medical masks and antiseptics). Contacts with other military personnel, civilian personnel and the local population are excluded as much as possible.
