MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. The experience acquired by the Russian Navy during the Mediterranean voyage of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and the experience of firing the Kalibr cruise missiles at terrorist positions in Syria from submarines and surface vessels has been analyzed and became part of training programs for Russian seamen, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Vladimir Korolyov, told the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.

"This experience along with the experience of firing high-precision weapons from Project 636.3 submarines, Project 1135.6 frigates and small missile ships at terrorists’ positions is being analyzed and included in training programs in the naval educational institutions, used in training ship commanders and officers," he said.

"The multifunctional air wing of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, which includes the Sukhoi Su-33, the Mikoyan MiG-29K aircraft, the Kamov Ka-52, Ka-27PL, Ka-27PS and Ka-29 deck helicopters, was tested for the first time ever under real conditions.
