The newest mine-sweeping ship of project 12700 “Yakov Balyaev” used weapons for the first time during the final stage of factory running and state tests. A six-barreled automatic artillery mount AK-630 was used to fire at air and surface targets.

The crew also conducted an exercise to destroy a floating sea mine, which is a hazard to navigation. In this case, fire on the mine mockup, together with the Ak-630 gun mount, was fired from 12.7 mm machine guns.

Acoustic and contact trawls have been successfully tested in combat training grounds for training search and mine destruction.

At sea, the Pacific, together with industry representatives, confirmed the efficiency of the trawler’s systems and mechanisms.

On December 26, the minesweeper will officially join the Pacific Fleet.
