Russian Northern Fleet Operations Under Review

March 2, 2019 (Google Translation) – The Northern Fleet continues to gather commanders for vocational training on the subject of fleet combat operations in the Arctic under the overall guidance of fleet commander Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

Today there are theoretical classes at headquarters: submarine forces in Gadzhiyevo, Kola flotilla of heterogeneous forces in Polar, air force and air defense forces in Safonovo, and the Northern Fleet army corps in Murmansk.

Submariners-North Sea explore the experience of ice navigation in the seas of the Arctic Ocean, the use of navigational aids for navigation navigation, the use of rocket and torpedo weapons in high latitudes, discuss proposals for improving the course of preparing submarines for navigation under the ice. The training of submariners is supervised by the vice-admiral Vladimir Grishechkin, chief of staff of the Northern Fleet.

On the Kola Flotilla, classes are conducted under the leadership of Deputy Commander of the Northern Fleet, Vice Admiral Viktor Sokolov. Naval collectors summarize the experience of performing tasks in the Arctic from 2016 to 2018, conducting amphibious operations on the islands of the archipelagoes Franz Josef Land, New and Northern Land, and the Novosibirsk Islands, as well as Chelyuskin Cape. At the end of the training, commanders will conduct tactical tactics to form an icebreaker group, force the difficult part of the Northern Sea Route to provide icebreakers, as well as assist the warship in the Arctic.

In the Army of the Air Force and Air Defense under the direction of the commander of the association, Lieutenant General Alexander Otroshchenko, the commanders of air defense units and aviation are studying the theory of air navigation in the polar regions of the Northern Hemisphere, airfield engineering support for aircraft in the Arctic, their preparation for departure in isolation from the airfield in low temperatures, as well as features of the use of anti-aircraft missile forces in high latitudes. Special attention is paid to rescue training in arctic conditions and the use of aviation rescue equipment.

In the army corps, the commanders of the ground and coastal forces of the Northern Fleet study the specifics of training units for solving combat missions in the regions of the Far North and the Arctic, as well as the specifics of their material, technical, moral and psychological support.
