MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

A detachment of large landing ships (BDK) “Pyotr Morgunov”, “Georgy the Victorious” and “Olenegorsk miner” of the Kola flotilla formation of heterogeneous forces of the Northern Fleet worked out the tasks of a joint exit in the Barents Sea.

For several days, the crews performed a set of combat exercises with the practical use of artillery, radio-technical and mine weapons.

At the final stage, the sailors carried out anti-aircraft artillery fire at a simulated air target as part of an exercise to repel an attack by a simulated enemy air attack on the ships of the landing detachment.

The shooting took place at the Northern Fleet’s naval training grounds in the Barents Sea, which were previously closed for civil aviation in order to ensure security.

After completing all the assigned tasks, the ships returned to their permanent base – the city of Severomorsk.
