KALININGRAD, November 8. /TASS/. The crew of Russia’s latest Project 11356 frigate Admiral Makarov has fired an air defense missile system at the concluding stage of its state trials at the Baltic Fleet’s practice ranges, Fleet spokesman Roman Martov said on Wednesday.

“During the state trials at sea, the warship’s crew fired missiles against naval air targets. The missiles were fired from the Shtil shipborne vertical-launch multi-channel air defense missile complex against the targets simulating a notional enemy’s cruise missiles,” the spokesman said.

The practice targets were launched by the small missile ships Geizer and Liven. After entering the battle course, their crews alternately launched missile targets simulating the notional enemy’s anti-ship cruise missiles.
