"Servicemen from the missile formation of the Kamchatka group trained firing a number of ‘enemy’ ships as part of the military exercises. After learning targets, the combat units made electronic missile strikes from the Bastion and Rubezh anti-ship missile systems on a landing "enemy" unit located 100 km away," Matveev reported.
