The Russian Navy’s task force comprises the frigate Admiral Grigorovich with a deck-based helicopter, the patrol ship Dmitry Rogachyov and the rescue tug SB-742.

In the course of the exercise that runs in the eastern Mediterranean, the Russian and Egyptian combat ships operate under the command of the joint headquarters of the drills under a single plan and accomplish the tasks of thwarting attacks by naval targets, inspecting suspicious ships, providing air defense and replenishing supplies at sea from a helicopter.

The Russian and Egyptian navies have been holding the Bridge of Friendship joint naval maneuvers since 2015. In 2020, the drills ran in the Black Sea, with the participating combat ships calling at the port of Novorossiysk.

The ship is intended for towing ships in distress, fire fighting on crafts, vessels, floating and shore facilities, water pumping and electricity supply to emergency vessels, evacuation and medical treatment of rescued people, diving works at depth down to 60 m, rescue and inspection operations as well as petroleum product recovery. The design is developed by OJSC DB “Vympel”.
