Guard ship "Neustrashimy" conducted tests of the hydroacoustic system at sea
The crew paid special attention to the detection of underwater targets at long distances.
KALININGRAD, May 25. /TASS/. The crew of the Neustrashimy guard ship of the Baltic Fleet, which is undergoing sea trials in the sea ranges of the Baltic Fleet, checked the operability and efficiency of the ship's sonar system, the press service of the fleet said on Wednesday.
"As part of the stage of post-factory sea trials, the crew of the Neustrashimy TFR checked the performance of the hydroacoustic system designed to analyze the underwater situation, including searching for and detecting submarines, mines, torpedoes, as well as underwater saboteurs at various ranges and depths on the move, in drifting and when the ship is anchored," the press service said.
It is noted that, in particular, the crew of the Neustrashimy, together with representatives of the plant, paid special attention to testing the capabilities of hydroacoustics to detect underwater targets at long distances.
The press service explained that for this, several torpedoes were fired from the Aleksin small anti-submarine ship in the direction of the Neustrashimy. As a result, the guard's specialists, using the data coming from the hydroacoustic station, identified the information and interacted with other ship systems that ensure the use of weapons.
"As a result, the hydroacoustic system confirmed its high efficiency, the task assigned to ship acoustic specialists was completed in full and with high quality," the press service commented to TASS.
As previously reported, specialists from the Yantar Baltic shipbuilding plant in Kaliningrad carried out work to upgrade the mechanical part of the Neustrashimy guard ship. The afterburner engines were repaired and re-installed, as well as the weapons and supporting mechanisms of the patrol ship were modernized. As part of the ongoing sea trials at sea, the crew has already successfully completed artillery and rocket firing, and solved other tasks as intended. Upon completion of the entire complex of tests, the Fearless will return to the Baltic Fleet and continue to perform tasks as part of a formation of surface ships of the fleet.
