KALININGRAD, April 25. /TASS/. More than 10 warships, boats and supply vessels of Russia’s Baltic Fleet have put to sea for exercises that will include artillery and torpedo firing drills, Baltic Fleet spokesman Vladimir Matveyev said on Monday.
"During several days the ships’ crews will conduct at sea ranges artillery and torpedo firing drills aiming at sea, air and shore targets; the forces’ combat readiness in anti-submarine warfare and air defense actions will be checked", he said.
The minesweepers and small anti-submarine ships will drill missions to protect and defend a water area. The fleet’s anti-submarine naval aviation will be also involved in the drills. An amphibious assault beach landing operation will be drilled at the fleet’s Khmelevka range with the task to establish a bridgehead on the imaginary enemy’s shore.
