Russia's Northern Fleet Cruise Missile Exercise Ended in the Arctic
 
The Northern Fleet has completed a series of scheduled exercises held in the Arctic, the fleet’s press service reported. "During live-fire episodes in the Barents Sea, White Sea and Laptev Sea areas, 13 sea- and land-based cruise missiles were launched, including from two submerged nuclear submarines," the fleet said.

Crews of the ships, participating in the record exercises of a combined-force group, also carried out dozens of artillery and anti-aircraft missile live-fire exercises. Practical episodes of the exercises were played at training ranges in the Barents and the White Seas, as well as in the Laptev Sea off the New Siberian Islands archipelago.

A total of around 50 warships and support vessels were involved in the combat training events, including the Northern Fleet’s flagship, the Project 11442 heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky (Peter the Great), Project 941 ballistic missile nuclear submarine Dmitry Donskoy, over 30 aircraft, nuclear and diesel submarines.

Now they are returning to their home bases. Along the way home, they will practice providing assistance to simulated distressed ships and, while some of the ships, together with support vessels, will conduct replenishment-at-sea exercises.
