According to the legend of the exercises, the mock enemy ship intended to strike at the coastal facilities of the Black Sea Fleet. The frigate worked out the search for the ship, after which the “Admiral Makarov” conditionally hit it with the “Caliber-NK” missile system. Then Bastion’s crews were conditionally shot at the ship.
It is noted that the exercises were conducted in accordance with the combat training plan of the Black Sea Fleet. The training battle took place without the actual use of rocket weapons.
“The combat crews of the Bastion missile defense complex and the crew of the frigate Admiral Makarov successfully completed all the tasks of the exercise,” the Black Sea Fleet stressed.
