“Under the program of the final stage of the state trials at a range in the Baltic Sea, the crew fired the Redut air defense missile system, A-190 and AK-630 artillery systems against a practice target imitating an adversary anti-ship cruise missile,” the press office said.

The anti-ship cruise missile was launched by the Baltic Fleet’s R-257 missile boat. The missile was hit with air defense missiles and dense artillery fire delivered by the corvette. The live-firing was conducted in an active electronic countermeasures environment.

According to video footage posted by the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Gremyashchy corvette launched a 9M96-family air defense missile during trials and hit a target missile with it. The AD missile was fired with a 3S.97 vertical launcher of the Redut system with its two modules installed in the stern.

The exercise area was cordoned off by more than 10 ships and support vessels of the fleet.

Earlier, the Gremyashchy corvette fired Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) cruise missiles against a coastal and seaborne target in the White Sea. It conducted artillery and torpedo live-firing in the Barents Sea.

Trials of advanced hardware designed for the Russian Navy and foreign states are regularly held at Baltic Fleet sea ranges and are supported by ships, vessels, rescue forces and aircraft of the Baltic Fleet.

The Gremyashchy corvette (side No. 337) is the Project 20385 lead ship laid down by the Severnaya Verf Shipyard on February 1, 2012, and launched in June 2017. The ship is designed for the Pacific Fleet.
