This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the head of the information support department of the Black Sea Fleet, Captain 2nd rank Alexei Rulev.
“In accordance with the combat training plan, the Admiral Essen frigate of the Black Sea Fleet fired at the caliber missile system at the coastal target from the naval training ground in the Black Sea,” said Rulev.
It is noted that the rocket successfully hit the target. She flew along a complex trajectory, a distance of about 140 nautical miles (more than 250 km).
Rulev added that this is the second Caliber shooting, which was carried out by the crews of the new Black Sea Fleet frigates.
Earlier, Kryminform reported that Admiral Essen carried out electronic launches of Caliber missiles on a conditional enemy ship.
