Black Sea Fleet frigate Admiral Essen conducts a drill to find submarine of mock enemy
The crew of the frigate Admiral Essen of the Black Sea Fleet, as part of a tactical group of ships, conducted an exercise to search for a submarine of a mock enemy in training grounds in the Black Sea.
The role of the mock enemy submarine was performed by the submarine of the Black Sea Fleet Novorossiysk.
During the exercise, tactical techniques were developed for the continuous pursuit of a submarine by a detachment of heterogeneous ships and its destruction with torpedo weapons and rocket bombs.
A joint search for the submarine was carried out with air support from the crew of the Ka-27PL anti-submarine helicopter from the Black Sea Fleet.
Target designation for ships was carried out by the crews of the mine-torpedo warhead of the frigate Admiral Essen.
As a result of the joint actions of the crews of the ships and Ka-27PL helicopter, the pursuit of the submarine ended with its destruction.
