MURMANSK, August 16. /TASS/. The Russian Northern Fleet’s large anti-submarine warfare ships Vice-Admiral Kulakov and Severomorsk have teamed up with aviation to detect and sink a notional enemy’s submarine in drills, the fleet’s press office reported on Tuesday.
"During the drills, the crews of the ships, aircraft and helicopters practiced the tactic of searching for submarines, and also anti-submarine maneuvering and anti-torpedo defense," the press office said.
The sailors used RBU-6000 rocket launchers to prevent the enemy from carrying out a torpedo attack. The crews of the anti-submarine warfare ships also held torpedo firing exercises themselves.
The drills marked the concluding stage of the departure of the large anti-submarine warfare ships Vice-Admiral Kulakov and Severomorsk for the Barents Sea. While at sea, the warships also held artillery live-firing exercises and air defense drills.
