MURMANSK, August 15. /TASS/. The Russian Northern Fleet’s naval strike group comprising the destroyer Admiral Ushakov, the large anti-submarine warfare ships Vice-Admiral Kulakov and Severomorsk has held an artillery live-firing exercise in the Barents Sea, the fleet’s press office told TASS on Monday.
The warships delivered artillery fire against sea and defiladed coastal targets in the Barents Sea and on the shore of Kola Peninsula, the press office said.
"The live-firing exercise was held using the warships’ main caliber - the 130mm artillery systems of the destroyer Admiral Ushakov and the 100mm guns of the large anti-submarine warfare ships - against installed sea and coastal targets," the press office said.
The naval strike group practiced issuing target designation data jointly with aviation and the teams of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of a separate motor rifle brigade within the fleet’s land and coastal defense forces.
After the artillery live-firing, the naval strike force continued accomplishing combat training missions in the Barents Sea.
The Northern Fleet’s multipurpose nuclear submarine Obninsk attacked a group of a notional enemy’s warships and vessels with torpedoes during the drills, the fleet’s press office told TASS.
"The submarine’s crew delivered fire with four practical torpedoes against the group’s ships from a designated depth and distance," the press office said.
The role of the notional enemy was performed by the large and small anti-submarine warfare ships Vice Admiral Kulakov, Severomorsk, Brest and Yunga. The firing exercise was held successfully and the targets were destroyed with the designated accuracy, the fleet’s press office said.
