Frigates Admiral Grigorovich & Admiral Essen Join Mediterranean Flotilla

August 25, 2018 (Google Translation) – The frigates of the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Essen make a planned transition from Sevastopol to the Mediterranean.

Currently, the crews of the ships pass the Black Sea straits of the Bosporus and the Dardanelles.

Making the transition by sea, the ships carried out a complex of naval combat exercises in the training grounds of the fleet in the Black Sea.

In particular, the crews of the frigates, together with the crews of the Ka-27PL helicopters, completed the tasks of take-offs and landings on the deck of ships, conducted training in searching for and tracking the submarine. At the same time, in order to check the coherence of the operation of all systems of aircraft complexes of ships, shipboard training exercises providing helicopter flights were conducted.

It is planned that by the end of the day the ships will join the permanent formation of the Navy in the far sea zone.
