1st April 2020 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Three Admiral Grigorivich-class frigates from the Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet (BSF) carried out a training exercise in the Mediterranean Sea.

The drill involved the first-in-class Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Makarov (pictured) and Admiral Essen.

The frigates practised searching and destroying a submarine belonging to a mock enemy. Air support was provided by the use of an AsuW Ka-27PL naval helicopter belonging to the BSF.

After the destruction of the mock submarine, the frigate crews trained in joint navigation and combat manoeuvres such as signalling, anti-submarine and anti-aircraft protection.
