The newest diesel submarine “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky” in the Sea of ​​Japan launched a cruise missile of the “Caliber” complex at a ground target from a submerged position.

The crew of the submarine, while performing the training task, conducted a set of trainings and exercises as intended with the development of the algorithm of actions when conducting missile firing with high-precision weapons. Immediately before the launch, the submariners made a tactical maneuver of a covert exit to the mission area.

At the estimated time, the missile hit the coastal target position in the tactical field of Surkum. The firing range exceeded 1000 kilometers.

Rocket fire was provided by ships and vessels of the Pacific Fleet, aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles of the Pacific Fleet’s naval aviation.

For reference:

The submarine “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky” as part of a detachment of ships arrived at the main base of the Pacific Fleet less than a month ago. The detachment made an inter-fleet transition from the Baltic to the Pacific fleet.

In the Pacific Fleet, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is one of the first diesel-electric submarines capable of carrying Kalibr precision cruise missiles.
