KALININGRAD, September 4. /TASS/. More than 1,500 servicemen from the Baltic Fleet will take part in the exercises in amphibious landing on rough terrain in the Kaliningrad Region next week, spokesman for the Russian Baltic Fleet Vladimir Matveyev told TASS on Friday.
"The exercise conducted as a part of the Fleet’s scheduled combat training will involve nearly 20 combat ships, motor boats and support vessels, about 10 naval aviation aircraft and helicopters, up to 100 pieces of combat and special hardware of the Baltic Fleet’s costal defense troops," Matveyev said.
A marine infantry guards unit will land onto the shore at the Khmelevka range, he said.
The marines will land onto the rough terrain during the exercises with the fire support from a ship strike group, as well as assault and fighter aircraft to establish a bridgehead for a future offensive.
BTR-82A armored personnel carriers will be landed from large amphibious ships and motor boats, and tactical paratroopers will be airdropped from the Baltic Fleet’s military transport aviation aircraft.
Intensive preparatory work for the exercises is in progress at the Khmelevka range, Matveyev said. In particular, the marines will be airdropped from Antonov An-26 (NATO reporting name: Curl) military transport aircraft. Airdrops will be performed in various weather conditions, both in the daytime and at night. The paratroopers will be airdropped at least 10 times every day, the spokesman said.
