“Today, for the first time, a successful launch of an anti-ship cruise missile of the Uranus complex, which the ship received in the course of modernization, has been successfully launched from the frigate,” the statement said.
Marshal Shaposhnikov was founded in 1983 at the Yantar Baltic shipyard. The frigate became operational in the Pacific Fleet in February 1986. In 2016, the frigate was sent for repair and modernization to the Dalzavod Ship Repair Center (Primorsky Territory).
In December, the project 955A submarine Vladimir Monomakh fired for the first time a salvo of four Bulava ballistic missiles at the Chizha training ground near Arkhangelsk. According to the confirmed objective control data, the missile warheads “successfully arrived in the designated area of the Chizha battlefield.”
In November, the newest corvette “Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov” for the first time used the “Package” complex against a simulated enemy submarine.
In addition, this corvette was also the first to launch a cruise missile of the Uranus complex at a sea target in the Peter the Great Gulf in Primorye. The missile, at the set time, successfully hit a surface target at a distance of about 40 km from the warship.
