“The frigate Yaroslav Mudry repelled a simulated enemy’s aerial attacks at Baltic Fleet sea ranges,” the press office said. The ship’s radars tracked two groups of aerial targets. Sukhoi Su-24M (Fencer-D) frontline bombers and Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) antisubmarine warfare helicopters were used to simulate adversary high-speed and low-flying aerial targets.

The ship’s crew activated shipborne electronic warfare systems and used active and passive countermeasures. The crewmen fired the Kortik (CADS-N-1 Kashtan) anti-aircraft missile/gun system to eliminate the simulated enemy’s aerial targets when they were within the engagement distance.
