Naval aviation of the Black Sea Fleet learned to detect enemy submarines
Ka-27M helicopters from the naval aviation and air defense of the Black Sea Fleet conducted an exercise to search for a mock enemy submarine in the Black sea.
As part of the exercise, helicopter crews took off from one of the airfields in the Crimea and worked out a set of measures to search for and detect a mock enemy submarine.
The role of the enemy at the exercise was played by one submarine of the Fleet's formation.
During the exercise, Ka-27M helicopters used a drop-down sonar station that can detect and determine the coordinates of various underwater targets. Naval aviation helicopter crews successfully completed the search task and passed the data to the tactical group of anti-submarine ships.
The exercise was held in accordance with the plan of combat training of the Black Sea Fleet forces.
