Russian Corvette Soobrazitelnyy Tests Artillery Skills

Russian Baltic Fleet’s newest corvette, the Soobrazitelnyy, successfully conducted the second course of sea operation by testing its artillery.

During the drills, which lasted for two days, the crew practiced firing at air and sea targets, sailing through narrow passageways, low visibility operations, and anti-sabotage.

The 100-mm weapon system aboard the vessel was used throughout the drills. The aim was to test the crew’s readiness to perform sea-based tasks as well as readiness to engage in various operational and tactical situations.

The Soobrazitelnyy is the second ship of the the Steregushchiy class of corvettes. The ship was built by the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St.Petersburg and officially joined the Baltic Fleet in 2011.
