Black Sea Fleet meets US destroyer with missile launch training

In the Black Sea, military exercises of the Russian Navy took place. According to the scenario of the exercises, the ship of the conditional enemy was fired by Caliber rockets. Electronic launches were carried out by the teams of the small rocket ship Orekhovo-Zuevo, as well as the frigate Admiral Essen. The progress of the maneuvers was announced by the representative of the Russian fleet Alexei Rulev.

According to the plan, the squadron of enemy ships moved towards the Crimea without identification marks and flags and did not respond to callsigns. In response, the Navy ships approached the enemy and forced him to change course.

One of the enemy ships “launched” a rocket, which was reflected by the Admiral Essen air defense missile system “Shtil-1”. Then both Russian ships destroyed enemy ships in one gulp of the Caliber-NK high-precision missile system. Rulev explained that there was no use of missiles as such - launches were carried out electronically.

The exercise on the use of weapons in the Black Sea region was held in accordance with the combat training plans of the Russian Navy

- added Alexey Rulev.

Earlier, the American destroyer USS Porter entered the Black Sea area - Russian ships took it to escort. The ship moved to the area from the Mediterranean to "ensure security."

In November last year, this US ship already entered the southern part of the Black Sea - it was also accompanied by vessels of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

    Readers are kept for idiots.
    They are met with shots either in war - not the case, or with respect.
    It turns out that the BSF respects amers?

    In vain. The Americans did not even notice the "electronic launches", that is, imaginary ones .... and did not greet the Black Sea Fleet in response in any way ...

      If I were you, I would not giggle ... For the uninformed, the potential enemy kindly provided his destroyer as a target, which our naval forces did not fail to use. Practice shooting has the highest efficiency if the skills of launching a missile strike are practiced not according to training, but according to a REAL target. I think that the crew of the American destroyer was not happy about the fact that they were "taken for escort" and hardly noticed the electronic launch on their own. The fact that they were escorted by a weapon against which there was nothing to oppose did not add to the health of their crew.

        Alas, this is all a fictitious hat-making crap for ......

        Here is what (allegedly) said in the BSF release:

        “The crews of the Su-24M front-line bombers of naval aviation and air defense and the Kolpino submarine from the Black Sea Fleet’s submarine formation conducted joint exercises to launch missile and bomb strikes on the contingent enemy’s ships in the Black Sea,” the press service of the Black Sea said. fleet.

        A detachment of conditional enemy ships was portrayed by the frigate Admiral Essen and the small missile ship Orekhovo-Zuevo. Their location was discovered with the help of the Forpost and Orlan drones, which transmitted target designation to the bombers and the Kolpino submarine.

        In addition to delivering a conditional missile-bomb strike, the crews of bombers and submarines worked out maneuvers for evading naval air defense systems and anti-submarine weapons.

        Urya-zhurnalyugi combined and distorted 2 different news.
        By the way, this destroyer is not the first time that Urya lies.
        Here is how it is described now:

        Recall that in 2017, three Russian front-line Su-24M bombers frightened the sailors of the USS Porter, seriously, making low flights near the ship. After one of these overflights, the American media reported that part of the crew of the American ship quit, motivating its decision with the insecurity of such incidents.

        Already not one plane, but 3, and not the European, but the American media, did not rush to write teary letters in pure Russian, and then broke into the very first port, but simply quit.

        ... the fact that they were escorted by a weapon against which there was nothing to oppose did not add to the health of their crew. So your "bunch" ...

        Can it be understood that no one, never, anywhere and under any circumstances "accompanies" Russian ships, and even if this is not so, then they are not even able to realize this fact from an overabundance of health? Why should they oppose something? They showed the flag and all NATE allies immediately pulled themselves up, and the Ukrainians were probably also delighted. It is done.
        This is how Russian specialists, diplomats and all the rest together, Ukraine as a friendly state, "fired", yes. Significant diplomatic victory, right here - "I wouldn't giggle if I were you ..."

    It turns out that all their visits to the Black Sea are just BS for them ... Of course, they are not afraid of anyone. There will be an order and everything that flies will be shot down, and even before the sound anti-ship missile system 3M54, which only the last 10 miles go on 3-mahs, which are available on our MRK and frigates, for them there is not a strong danger, as, in fact, and over the sound DBK "Onyx" .... nobody gets there. Like the Su-24-30 MA with cast iron, it will not even take off, who will send them to certain death, and, oddly enough, there are still no long-range anti-ship missiles on them. Do not send them into the zone of his air defense. For him, the only danger is the salvo launch of all our Onyx anti-ship missiles, so there will be 16 of them at most for the entire Black Sea Fleet ... Aegis may "choke" if a full salvo of the Bal ballistic missile system is connected, and these are 32 Uran anti-ship missiles so there the range is either 130, or 260 km, not at all like the "Onyx". Of course, we can laugh at them, especially in the media, but adult uncles in Moscow are not so complacent. Because every Arley Burke EM is a mobile missile defense base ... designed to intercept our ICBMs on takeoff. At least, they hope so and really want to ... BUT?
