MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. Missile carrying and anti-submarine boats have held a simulated torpedo firing practice and hit targets in the Peter the Great Gulf, the Eastern Military District’s spokesman, Captain 1st class Roman Martov, has told TASS.
"The anti-submarine ships have identified a hypothetical enemy’s submarine (the role was played by a diesel-powered Varshavyanka sub) and then simulated its elimination," he said.
The commander of the surface ships unit, Captain 1st class Aleksey Zhovtonozhko, said the main purpose of this phase of winter-time combat training was to evaluate the skill of commanders of all levels to interact within tactical groups.
In May, the naval units will begin to fire missiles against naval targets and implement tasks within combined tactical groups, Martov said.
