RFS Snezhnogorsk Weapons Training in Barents Sea

March 28, 2019 (Google Translation) – The small anti-submarine ship (IPC) “Snezhnogorsk” of the Kola Flotilla of the heterogeneous forces of the Northern Fleet, as part of its planned combat training, began working out the actions of a single ship in the Barents Sea.

The crew of the IPC carried out firing at simulated air targets from the Osa-MA anti-aircraft missile system, AK-176 artillery mounts and 30-mm AK-630 30-mm artillery guns. According to the plan of the doctrine, the ship repelled a raid by the aviation of a conditional enemy and carried out the destruction of a guided bombs.

In the course of the event, the MiG-29 aircraft of the ship-borne fighter regiment of the Northern Fleet, which set an imitated air target, opposed the ship.

In addition to directly conducting firing as part of an air defense exercise, the crew of the Snegnogorsk MPC worked out maneuvering tactics to repel attacks of a conventional enemy air attack weapons and tracking air targets.

In the near future with the crew will be held exercises on combat with the surface ship of the “enemy” with intensive maneuvering.
