Pacific Fleet rescuers train to help a submarine in distress on the bottom
In accordance with the combat training plan, the Pacific Fleet’s rescue vessel Alagez conducted a drill on rescuing a submarine in distress on the bottom near the Kamchatka Peninsula.
In order to perform the task in the Avacha Bay, the carrier vessel used the AS-30 underwater rescue vehicle. After checking all the systems, the vehicle searched for the dummy submarine resting about 80 metres deep on the bottom. Rescuers examined the platform of the submarine, cleared it of bottom silt, and trained to rescue the submarine crew.
The AC-30 carried out three dockings with the dummy submarine. The actions of deep-sea divers were controlled by means of remote-controlled underwater complexes, which make it possible to give an objective assessment of the rescue work.
