As part of the exercise with the Arctic expeditionary group, which is being led by the commander of the Northern Fleet, Hero of Russia, Admiral Alexander Moiseyev, the ship search and strike group performed a number of anti-submarine missions in the near sea zone.

The crews of the small anti-submarine ships Yunga and Snezhnogorsk, in cooperation with the Il-38 aircraft and the Ka-27PL helicopter of the Air Force and Air Defense Army, searched for imaginary enemy submarines at the stage of deploying the fleet strike forces.

The anti-submarine sailors worked out the tactics of searching for a submarine in various ways using on-board sonar systems, as well as according to information from anti-submarine aviation pilots who set up barriers from sonar buoys in naval combat training ranges of the fleet.

At the final stage of the exercise, the practical use of anti-submarine weapons systems against a simulated underwater target was worked out. Crews of small anti-submarine ships carried out depth charges and torpedo firing.

Small anti-submarine ships of project 1124 “Albatross”, which are in service with the Kola flotilla of diverse forces, are designed to search, track and destroy submarines in the near sea and coastal zones. They are equipped with AK-176M and AK-630M artillery systems, anti-submarine weapons – RBU-6000 rocket launchers and 533-mm torpedo tubes, and also have hydroacoustic and radio-technical weapons.
