Crews of small artillery ships of the Russian Caspian Flotilla have performed shooting exercises at sea, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Southern Military District said in a statement on Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — As part of the flotilla’s drills, crews of Dagestan and Tatarstan rocket ships as well as crews of Uglich and Veliky Ustyug small missile ships, managed to destroy a simulated enemy’s naval detachment, having performed electronic launches from the Kalibr-NK missile complex.

"The second naval group composed of small artillery ships the Volgodonsk and the Makhachkala jointly with the Shmel artillery boats carried out exercises on anti-ship defense of vessels crossing the sea. During the exercises, naval gunners fired at targets simulating a detachment of enemy ships," the statement said.

The Volgodonsk and the Makhachkala crews also reportedly performed air defense drills in the Caspian Sea. During these exercises, a simulated enemy's air force was dropping bombs on the vessels while the naval gunners were deterring the attack, destroying the falling air targets.
