Division of missile coastal systems (DBK) "Bastion" of the tactical group of the North fleet conducted exercises on Alexandra’s Land. This was reported by the press service of the Northern Fleet.
During the exercises, the Bastion division, deployed on the Alexandra Land of the Franz Josef Land archipelago, worked out the alarm, march to the designated area and deploy launchers on the coast of the Barents Sea. The calculations of the systems worked out the defeat of surface targets by electronic launches (the calculation performs all the necessary actions, but without launching the rocket).
Combat calculations of the complexes conducted exercises on the defeat of conventional surface targets using computer simulation of the tactical situation without actually performing missile launches
