Pyotr Velikiy Practices Submarine Seeking Skills
Pyotr Velikiy, Russian Navy’s fourth Kirov-class battle cruiser, yesterday deployed on a mission to undertake submarine seeking exercises.
The main goal of these drills is to provide the crew of Pyotr Velikiy, as well as the submarines involved in the exercise, with practical experience.
The exercises will be carried out in neutral waters on the border of the Norwegian and Greenland Seas, and will involve anti-submarine and naval helicopters.
Following completion of planned activities, Pyotr Velikiy, the flagship of the Northern Fleet, will test fire its torpedoes.
