The crew of the newest Project 22800 Karakurt small missile ship (MRK) Odintsovo, built at the Pella shipyard for the Baltic Fleet, fired from the Pantsir-M anti-aircraft missile and cannon system as part of state tests, together with representatives of the plant.

As air targets were used small-sized aircraft targets M-6, delivered by Su-27 fighters of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation.

During the implementation of practical missile and artillery firing, all assigned targets were successfully hit.

As part of the state tests, representatives of the factory acceptance team, together with the ship’s crew and members of the state acceptance committee, conduct maneuverable and high-speed tests of the ship, check the operation of all units, systems and assemblies, the ship’s weapons, navigation and radio equipment. The purpose of the tests is to comprehensively check the quality of the built ship and the compliance of its tactical and technical characteristics with the approved project.

It is planned that by the end of October the naval flag will be raised on the Odintsovo MRC and the ship will become part of the Baltic Fleet.
