Commanders of Russia’s Northern Fleet are mastering new ways of using deadly underwater weapons in the High Arctic, the press service of the Northern Fleet reported.
Admiral Vladimir Korolyov, the commander of the Northern Fleet, talked about the importance of using the combat experience of the older generation of Navy officers, while at the same time working to develop new techniques and tactics of underwater warfare. The Admiral also mentioned that the Russian navy is highly trained and its crews could carry out missions in any situation.
In January, it was reported that the Northern Fleet increased its air defense by adding new S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems. The S-400 Triumph long- to medium-range surface-to-air missile system can hit any aerial targets, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and cruise and ballistic missiles at a distance of up to 400 kilometers (250 miles) and an altitude of up to 30 kilometers (18.6 miles).
