In the Naval Harbor in Baltiysk, in preparation for the joint strategic exercise Zapad-2021, servicemen of the Northern Fleet’s marine corps worked out loading equipment onto landing ships. The loading took place on the large landing ships “Korolev”, “Kaliningrad”, “Minsk” of the Baltic Fleet, as well as on the large landing ship of the Northern Fleet “Olenegorsk miner”.

In the near future, ships with subunits and military equipment of the marines on board will make the transition by sea to the area of ​​the amphibious landing. A detachment of warships of the Baltic Fleet, consisting of corvettes, small missile ships and boats, small anti-submarine ships, as well as naval aviation of the fleet, will provide cover for the landing forces during the transition by sea.

After the transition, the servicemen will take part in a special tactical lesson for the landing of amphibious assault forces on the unequipped coast of the amphibious assault range. More than 200 personnel and over 20 armored personnel carriers BTR-80 were involved in the combat training event.
