Today, a tactical group of ships of the guard unit of the water region of the main base of the Pacific Fleet in Peter the Great Bay conducted a tactical exercise on the integrated use of air defence and electronic warfare systems in repelling airborne attacks of a mock enemy.

In the training ground, the small anti-submarine ships Koreets, MPK-221 and the missile boat R-29 during the exercise fulfilled the tasks of collective defence of the detachment in repelling an air attack. Long-range anti-submarine aircraft Tu-142 and anti-submarine aircraft Il-38 were operating on the mock enemy's side.

The ships practiced the whole algorithm of actions in case of a threat of an air attack without the actual use of rocket and artillery weapons. During the exercise on the ships, electronic warfare equipment was activated and passive interference was introduced using the PK-10 and PK-16 complexes, designed to counter the enemy's guided weapons.
