The crew of the small rocket ship (MRK) “Veliky Ustyug” of the brigade of surface ships of the Caspian Flotilla (CFL) worked out the tasks for the purpose and improvement of marine elements in the water area of ​​the Caspian Sea.

In the sea ranges, the sailors of the Veliky Ustyug MRK performed firing exercises and standards AS-7 “Shooting at sea targets”, AS-50 “Shooting a floating mine”, as well as combat exercise GR-2, 3 “Shooting from a hand grenade launcher at detected saboteurs” … In addition, the crew conducted training in air defense, survivability control when parked in an unprotected roadstead, anti-sabotage ship defense and fulfilled the standards for radiation, chemical and biological protection in conditions of the use of weapons of mass destruction by a conventional enemy.

The launch of the MRK was preceded by training at the basing point and the completion of a set of tasks by the crew, including preparation for sailing, preparing the ship for battle and a campaign, practicing elements of combat and daily activities in the conditions of the base.

MRK “Veliky Ustyug” is the third ship of the project 21631 “Buyan-M”, which entered the KFL.

For reference:

The ships of the project 21631 “Buyan-M” are the modernization of the project 21630 “Buyan”, designed and built specifically for the KFL, taking into account the shallow depths of the Volga River in the Caspian Sea.

“Buyans” are equipped with unique propulsion systems, consisting of two water cannons, they provide the ship with a draft of no more than two m. Due to the shallow draft (about 2 m) and high maneuverability, they are able to solve a wide range of tasks in the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea, on the river and in the estuary, as well as in other narrow waters

The main armament of all ships of this project is a long-range high-precision missile weapon – the Kalibr-NK universal missile system.
