MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. Four Caspian Flotilla ships have held joint exercises with the crews of the over-the-horizon radar system Podsolnukh in Makhachkala, the press office of Russia’s Southern Military District reported on Tuesday.

The drills involve the Dagestan missile-carrying ship and the Grad Sviyazsk, the Uglich and the Veliky Ustyug small missile vessels armed with Kalibr missile systems.

"The crews of the Caspian Flotilla ships and combat teams of the radio-technical service posts in Makhachkala have held joint drills to detect surface and air targets and provide target acquisition for ships to use missile and artillery armament," the press office said.

The over-the-horizon radar system Podsolnukh assumed combat duty in the Caspian Flotilla in late 2013, the Southern Military District’s press office said.

The radar system is capable of detecting surface and air targets at various altitudes both within direct visibility and beyond the horizon.
