1

Russia’s Soobrazitelny corvette has successfully tested the newest Paket-NK antisubmarine system during the military exercises in the Baltic Sea. The Varshavyanka diesel-electric submarine served as a target and was fired at with actual torpedoes which hadn’t been equipped with warheads. According to the information available, the corvette will be engaged in more practice firing and conduct a number of other military exercises.

It should be noted that the Paket-NK system is designed for destroying submarines and torpedoes. The system can operate independently in fully automatic mode. The complex includes a quadruple launcher, a control system, a sonar director station, and torpedoes of two types. The complex has been put into service. It can be used for equipping or upgrading the new vessels.
