The combat crews of the Black Sea Fleet’s Samum hovercraft missile ship (RKVP) carried out artillery fire at one of the combat training grounds in the Black Sea.

As part of the combat training event, the sailors performed preparatory and test artillery fires at sea and air targets.

As a surface target, a shipboard target was used, imitating the ship of a conventional enemy. The air targets were luminous air bombs (SAB) dropped from the aircraft of the Naval Aviation and the Air Defense of the Black Sea Fleet.

Also, artillery crews of the Samum RCVP of the Black Sea Fleet conducted firing at mock-ups of floating mines.

At the final stage of the firing, the sailors worked out the algorithm of actions for organizing the air defense of the ship during the passage by sea with the setting of electronic jamming.

The artillery firing of the Samum RKVP crew took place in accordance with the combat training plan of the Black Sea Fleet.
