Russian Navy’s Frigate Conducts Missile Fire Tests

The Northern Fleet, project 22350, frigate Admiral Gorshkov has completed missile fire tests from the ship’s multi-purpose missile system in the White Sea.

Within the final phase of the state tests of ship hardware, the ship fired cruise missiles of various types were at naval target positions. The ship’s crew also completed a missile deployment test.

Due to the stormy weather expected in the next few days, the frigate will stay at the Belomorskaya naval base of the Northern Fleet. When the weather conditions are fine again the ship will continue hardware tests in the White Sea.

Having wrapped up all other tests earlier this month, this is the frigate’s final test before joining the Russian Navy.
