Russian Northern Fleet Tests Severe Weather Capability

February 18, 2019 (Google Translation) – Today, the large anti-submarine ship (BOD) of the Northern Fleet “Severomorsk” went to the Black Sea to check the quality of the inter-line repairs at the plant in Sevastopol.

The ship arrived at the main base of the Black Sea Fleet after performing long-range missions in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean on 10 January. Within one and a half months, BOD “Severomorsk” restored its technical readiness. His crew was on short vacation. The rest of the personnel was divided into two shifts so that a part of the crew was constantly on the ship and provided for the repair and maintenance of the ship’s materiel.

The main complex of technical works on BOD successfully completed. During the outbreak, the crew and the ship will confirm their readiness to perform tasks for the main purpose.

Recall that the BOD “Severomorsk” withdrew from the main base of the Northern Fleet in early July last year. He took part in the Main Naval Parade in Kronstadt, and then performed the tasks of a long voyage in the Mediterranean. From the end of September to mid-December, the North Sea seamen ensured the safety of civilian shipping in the waters of the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Aden, the Red and Arabian seas.

During the long hike, the crew of the ship visited the ports of Algeria, Victoria, Pemba, Antsiranana, Djibouti, Karachi and Limassol. He took part in the international Russian-Pakistani exercise on the anti-piracy activity “Arabian monsoon-2018” in the Indian Ocean and in the inter-fleet exercise of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean. New Year and Christmas, sailors also met in the Mediterranean.
