During the check-up of the troops following the results of the summer training period, the Black Sea Fleet marines conducted an exercise to land an assault force and create a bridgehead for the main landing forces on an unequipped coast.

The exercise was carried out at the Opuk interspecific training ground in the Crimea.

During the exercise, the Marine Corps units solved the tasks of breaking through the anti-amphibious defense of a simulated enemy, delivering artillery strikes against the defending forces, and also creating defense strongholds on the coast.

The reconnaissance group and military engineers were the first to make the landing. Their task was to identify the firing means of a simulated enemy and make passages in mine-explosive obstacles.

BTR-82A armored personnel carriers with the personnel of airborne assault units, whose task was to break through the defenses of a mock enemy, also left the coast. In the course of the mock battle, the assault groups captured the coastal line, suppressed the firing points of the simulated enemy and consolidated on the line to ensure the landing of the main forces of the naval tactical assault.

In parallel with this, the Mi-8AMTSh transport and assault helicopters ensured the delivery and disembarkation of assault groups to the rear of the mock enemy. Air support was provided by Ka-52 and Mi-24 combat helicopters.

After the landing, the amphibious assault units took advantageous positions, organized fire ambushes against the mock enemy and supported the offensive of the main forces.

In total, more than 400 servicemen took part in the two-sided battalion tactical exercise, conducted as part of the control check of the forces (troops) of the Black Sea Fleet during the summer training period, and over 50 units of military and special equipment were involved.
