Ingushetia corvette successfully test-fires artillery systems in Black Sea
The crew of the cutting-edge missile corvette Ingushetia successfully test-fired artillery systems during state trials at a Black Sea Fleet naval range, the Fleet’s press office reported.
The artillery firings were conducted as part of the ship’s state trials before its inclusion in the Black Sea Fleet’s combat structure. The missile corvette Ingushetia is set to enter service with the Black Sea Fleet in late December.
"While at sea, the ship’s crew and the shipyard’s delivery team test-fired the artillery systems in the normal regime and at maximum angles of rotation and elevation against simulated sea, coastal and air targets," TASS cited the statement as saying.
The crew of the missile corvette also checked the ship’s air defense system jointly with the pilots of a Su-30SM fighter jet from the Black Sea Fleet’s naval aviation.
