The “Peter the Great” heavy nuclear missile cruiser of the Northern Fleet went to sea for exercises to search and destroy submarines, the press service of the Western Military District for the Northern Fleet reported on Monday.

The exercises will be held in neutral waters at one of the polygons of the far sea zone on the border between the Norwegian and Greenland Seas.

As Chief of Staff of the Northern Fleet Vice Admiral Nikolay Evmenov is quoted as saying, “the feature of this exercise will be the district where it will be held – a remote place with difficult hydrological conditions different from the areas in which we hold these exercises on a regular basis.”

This combat training will be held in a “duel” mode when the missile cruiser will be simultaneously opposed by several Northern Fleet submarines of different classes. Upon completion of the teachings the “Peter the Great” heavy nuclear missile cruiser will perform complex combat training with torpedo firing and deep bombing.
