Caspian Flotilla Ships Conduct Exercises off Chechen Island

March 15, 2019 (Google Translation) – The rocket ships Dagestan and Tatarstan, as well as the small rocket ship Uglich of the Caspian Flotilla, within the framework of working out the K-2 course task, struck ground targets simulating a submerged enemy command center on Chechen Island.

In the course of fulfilling combat training tasks, the naval group struck from the artillery armament of the ships against coastal targets.

To ensure the correction of fire and visual control of the destruction of targets from the ship, an unmanned aerial vehicle was launched, which transmitted the necessary coordinates to the command post in real time.

Support for the naval grouping from the air was provided by the 4th Army Air Force and Air Defense Aircraft Su-30SM, Su-34, using ground-based weapons for ground targets.

Also, the crews of the ships carried out in the landfills the tasks of anti-mine protection, defense of the ships while parked on an unprotected roadstead, as well as a set of measures to develop tactics of combat operations by single ships.

In addition, the rocket launchers with electronic launches have worked out the defeat of surface targets with the high-precision Caliber missile system.

The ships of the Caspian Flotilla and operational-tactical aviation of the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense are involved in the combat training activities.
