MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. A group of ships of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet comprising the Moskva missile cruiser, the Pytlivy escort ship, the Shakhtyor rescue tug and the Ivan Bubnov tanker has entered the eastern part of the Atlantic for an exercise, Black Sea Fleet spokesman Captain 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev said on Thursday.
"A sea battle was one of the main exercise elements in which the Moskva crew test-fired a missile on a target simulating a surface ship. The cruise missile hit the target," he said.
In an air defense drill, the Moskva missile cruiser fired the Fort antiaircraft missile system and naval guns on an aerial target. The Pytlivy crew also conducted artillery firing exercise hitting a surface and an air target.
"The Kamov KA-27PS helicopter of the Moskva cruiser deck-based aircraft was used to verify the firing exercise efficiency," Trukhachev said, adding that after the current manoeuvres the Black Sea Fleet warships’ group will continue its ocean mission.
