Russian Black Sea Fleet conducts amphibious exercises

29th May 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Russian MoD reported on 28 May that its Black Sea Fleet had conducted a series of amphibious training exercises.

Crew members from the Azov, Novocherkassk and Saratov amphibious ships took part in artillery firing and the loading and landing of troops. Air, littoral and sea targets were all fired at during the training.

The Azov was responsible for air defence during the first of two stages of the exercise and was responsible for deterring a mock attack which was staged by a Russian Su-30SM multirole fighter jet from the Naval Aviation and Air Defence Fleet.

The second and final stage of the exercise involved loading military equipment and marine unit personnel onto amphibious craft and vehicles, which were instructed to land on an unprepared coastal area.
