Within the framework of the joint strategic exercise Zapad-2021, the calculations of the Baltic Fleet’s coastal missile complex (DBK) have worked out strikes against a detachment of surface ships of the imaginary enemy.

Combat vehicles with security made a march from the point of permanent deployment to the indicated positional areas, where the calculations worked out the deployment of launchers, camouflaging machines, organizing the protection of positions using, among other things, unmanned aerial vehicles.

In accordance with the received target designations, the missilemen carried out electronic launches of Uranus anti-ship cruise missiles at conventional sea targets, and then secretly, in a minimum time, changed positions. The servicemen also worked out the standards for loading and unloading cruise missiles onto launchers in the field.

More than 200 servicemen and about 30 units of military and special equipment were involved in the episode of the exercise.
