The crew of the submarine successfully completed the tasks and conducted conditional firing of torpedo weapons from an underwater position at an underwater target, in the role of which the diesel-electric submarine Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky acted.
Torpedo firing is an indispensable element of the combat training of submariners and is carried out in accordance with the approved plan. Crews of warships and rescue vessels, naval aviation of the Baltic Fleet ensure the performance of tactical tasks in the sea of diesel-electric submarines “Krasnodar” and “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky”.
