December 1, 2019 (Google Translation) – The first serial frigate of Project 22350 Admiral Kasatonov, built at the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg, fired a cruise missile from the White Sea.
The shooting was carried out as part of the next stage of factory sea trials. The frigate’s crew hit the Caliber cruise missile with a target position located on the Chizh battlefield in the Arkhangelsk region. The recording of the telemetry of missile flight was performed by the crew of the Il-20 aircraft of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet.
The closure of the firing area was provided by auxiliary vessels of the White Sea Naval Base. The small anti-submarine ship Onega was used as a control ship.
A few days earlier, the crew of the frigate Admiral of the Fleet Kasatonov carried out missile firing at Caliber and Onyx cruise missiles at sea targets.
Factory sea trials of the frigate Admiral Kasatonov began on November 20 and take place in several stages. The ship will continue to operate under the test plan in the White Sea for a few more days.
