The crews of Iskander of the Baltic Fleet held a planned exercise
As part of the planned combat training of the force (troops) of the Baltic Fleet in the Kaliningrad region, combat readiness training was conducted with the missile formation.
The crews of the Iskander operational tactic missile systems carried out a covert advance to the designated area, where they equipped launch positions and performed electronic single and group launches at targets simulating missile launchers, airfields, protected objects and command posts of a mock enemy.
Having made electronic launches, the servicemen practised actions to change the positional area in order to get out of a possible retaliatory strike.
During the exercise, the command of the formation from the mobile command posts works out the issues of covert command and control of subunits, in addition, the combat crews operate in conditions of mock radiation and chemical contamination of the terrain, and also repelled the attack of sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the mock enemy.
During the training, special attention is paid to the issues of improving the coordination of crews and subunits, the professional skills of personnel when moving to the indicated areas and camouflaging combat vehicles.
The drills involved some 100 troops, over 10 pieces of armaments and military hardware.
