KALININGRAD, January 28. /TASS/. The Baltic Fleet’s large amphibious assault ship Korolyov and the corvette Stoiky repelled a simulated enemy’s air and sea attacks during drills, the Fleet’s press office reported on Tuesday.
"During their joint deployment to the sea, the crews of the corvette Stoiky and the large amphibious assault ship Korolyov performed a set of artillery firings on various targets. The crew of the large amphibious assault ship practiced the elements of a battle to repel attacks by small-size targets and conduct air defense. The corvette also conducted firings on notional coastal and naval targets and repelled a simulated enemy’s air attack," the press office said in a statement.
The warships’ crews fired 100mm and 57mm artillery guns and Grad-M multiple launch rocket systems and also small tube artillery.
"As a major event, joint drills were also held to repel a notional enemy’s air attack weapons from low altitudes with the performance of surface-to-air artillery firings," the statement says.
Upon their deployment to the sea, the crews held shipborne drills for ship damage control on the move, radiation, chemical and biological protection at sea and practiced the elements of the ships’ anti-saboteur activity in an unsafe roadstead.
