Warship exercises in the Pacific Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) completed the task of destroying a group of aircraft carriers of a false enemy. This was announced in the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
It is specified that one of the episodes of the exercise took place at a distance of 2.5 thousand miles from the Kurils towards the Hawaiian Islands, which are more than 5 thousand kilometers from Russia.
“The ships, which operated as part of two divisions at a distance of about 300 miles from each other, completed the tasks of destroying the strike group of an aircraft carrier simulated by the enemy,” the ministry added.
According to the Department of Defense, during one of the stages, in order to create an environment as close as possible to the fulfillment of combat missions, the Pacific Fleet Force Groups of the Far Sea were divided into two tactical groups. One of the groups of ships played the role of a conditioned enemy and opposed the main forces of the fleet group.
