As part of the action plan for the combat training of the Baltic Fleet, the crews of the Bal coastal missile systems of the Leningrad naval base take part in a planned tactical exercise to launch a missile strike on the ships of the mock enemy.

On the coast of the Gulf of Finland, missilemen are taught tactical, technical and special training in order to improve their skills in performing tasks of detecting surface targets, issuing target designations when applying simulated missile strikes in various conditions.

The crews of the launch batteries of the Bal missile systems are practicing the methods of placing equipment in various positions, performing the tasks of exiting, deploying, changing the battle formation and location after using the weapon.

More than 50 servicemen and 10 units of military and special equipment, including mobile coastal reconnaissance systems for sea and air situations, are involved in training activities.

A feature of the Bal coastal missile system is its high mobility, quick position change and readiness to use missile weapons in a short time. The Ball complex is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 120 kilometers at any time of the day and under the most unfavorable weather conditions; launchers can be placed in hidden positions at a distance of up to 10 kilometers from the coast.
