Russia’s Soobrazitelny Corvette Destroys Imaginary Enemy
The crew of the Baltic Fleet’s Soobrazitelny corvette destroyed a submarine of an imaginary enemy using the latest Paket antisubmarine weapons system at the marine sites in the Baltic Sea. This information was presented by the press service of the Baltic Fleet on Friday.
“The crew practiced the steps to search for and detect a submarine using the advanced antisubmarine weapons systems. The Varshavyanka-class submarine was used as a submarine of an imaginary enemy,” the press center informed, noting that the target was figuratively destroyed with the help of the latest Paket weapons system capable of detecting, classifying and determining the movement parameters of torpedoes.
The Soobrazitelny corvette was laid down in May 2003. The vessel has a displacement of 2,000 tons, a length of 100 meters, a speed of up to 27 knots, and an operating range of 4,000 nautical miles. The corvette was delivered to the Russian Navy on October 14, 2011.
