Having shot down the target, the crew continued to test the operation of the ship's air defense system. The operation of radio systems on flying An-26 and Su-24 aircraft belonging to the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet was tested. Involved in the tests of the Poliment-Redut air defense missile system aviation flew, changing heights and distances.
Project 22350 ships that use stealth technology include Admiral Kasatonov. This is the second frigate of the project after Admiral Gorshkov, which was transferred to the fleet the year before last.
