A detachment of ships of the Pacific Fleet (PF) conducted a test tactical exercise (ZTU) in anti-submarine sabotage defense with the implementation of combat training exercises in the Peter the Great Gulf.

The exercise involved two small anti-submarine ships (MPK) “Metel” and “Koreets” and four anti-sabotage boats (PRDK) of the “Grachonok” type.

According to the plan of the exercise, one of the anti-sabotage boats, acting as a mock enemy, attempted to covertly disembark a group of submarine saboteurs aboard one of the support vessels of the Pacific Fleet, which was heading for the main base of the Pacific Fleet.

The crews of small anti-submarine ships, which were in the anti-submarine search patrol, received an order to approach the ship of the imaginary enemy. To search for underwater saboteurs, three Rook-type missile launchers moved forward, equipped with a modern Kalmar search complex capable of exploring the bottom surface at a depth of 200 meters.

During the ZTU, the personnel of the anti-sabotage boats conducted preventive grenade throwing exercises using the DP-61 grenade launcher, and the crews of the Metel and Koreets MPK performed combat training firing with RBU-6000 rocket launchers and RSB-60 rocket depth charges at the detection site conditional underwater targets.

The credit tactical exercise was held in accordance with the plan for the combat training of the naval forces in one of the naval training grounds located in the water area of ​​the Peter the Great Bay.
