KALININGRAD, September 3. /TASS/. The crew of the advanced Soobrazitelny corvette of the Russian Baltic Fleet has eliminated a simulated cruise missile during an exercise, fleet spokesman Vladimir Matveyev told TASS on Thursday.
"The crew of the Soobrazitelny employed their Redut ship-based surface-to-air missile system to repel an attack of a hard naval target - an antiship missile of the simulated enemy," Matveyev said.
The target missile was launched by the Zarechny missile boat with the missile ship and missile boat force of the Baltic Naval Base. "The missile fired by the Soobrazitelny corvette hit the target," the fleet representative said.
He added that the firing took place in the face of heavy jamming. With the target downed, the Soobrazitelny crew conducted a number of onboard drills covering electronic warfare, damage control and countersabotage.
