The crew of the frigate Admiral Essen of the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) conducted an exercise to cover the base point of ships from an air strike of a mock enemy.
According to the plan of the exercise, the control center of the Black Sea Fleet received data on the take-off of a group of a mock enemy aircraft in the direction of the Crimean Peninsula.
The signal of the approach of the air group of the mock enemy was transmitted to all naval forces of the fleet for the effective distribution of targets, air defence systems on the frigate Admiral Essen, performing tasks at sea, were also put on alert.
During the training, the frigate's air defence team took over the escort and destroyed the aircraft of the mock enemy with anti-aircraft missile weapons designed for the ship's air defence against all means of air attack.
The targets were electronically imitated by the ship's weapons control systems and conditionally destroyed before the aircraft entered the combat course.
At the end of the exercise, the crew of the frigate on the move worked out actions for landing on the deck and taking off the Ka-27M anti-submarine helicopter.
The exercise was conducted in accordance with the combat training plan of the Black Sea Fleet forces.
