MOSCOW, September 3. /TASS/. An antisubmarine ship strike group has left the Belomorsk naval base for a tactical exercise in the White Sea. The ships’ crews will practice defense of Fleet forces at sea and at permanent naval bases, spokesman for the Northern Fleet Vadim Serga said on Thursday.
"The crews of the small anti-submarine ships Onega and Naryan-Mar will practice antiaircraft defense measures, with antiaircraft and artillery live firing during the exercise. They will also conduct artillery fire during a phase of the exercises, in which they will take part in a sea battle against a simulated enemy’s surface ship," he said.
The crews of the ships will also practice a set of special missions, such as searching for and destroying a simulated enemy’s submarine and delivering torpedo live fire, Serga said.
The Project 1124 Albatros (NATO reporting name: Grisha class) small anti-submarine ships are designed for searching for, detecting, classifying and destroying submarines. They are armed with two 533-mm torpedo tubes, RBU-6000 12-barrel antisubmarine launchers, an Osa-MA (SA-N-4 "Gecko") air defense missile system and AK-176 and AK-630 artillery guns.
