In the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet), the first stage of the Sea Cup competition of the International Army Games 2021 – “Use of the ship’s weapons as intended” has ended. It consisted of two exercises: shooting at a floating mine and artillery shooting at a naval target.

The crew of the Corvette of the Russian Navy “Perfect”, which was the first to fire artillery according to the results of the draw, showed the highest accuracy. The sailors from the A-190 artillery mount hit the target twice and at the same time used up only 5 shells, although according to the regulations, 40 shells were issued to perform a combat exercise.

The surface target for the participants of the competition was a marine target shield, which was drifting at a distance of 6 km from the ship.

The combat crews of the Kuang Chung missile frigate of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam Navy and the Guanyuan ship of the People’s Republic of China also hit the naval shield, but used up all the ammunition provided.

When summing up the results of the combat exercise, the execution time was also estimated, which was recorded with the passage of the entrance and exit buoys.
