MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Two of the Caspian Flotilla's active Gepard-class frigates and six Buyan-class corvettes were listed as taking part in the training.
"Crew members of over 50 ships and supply vessels began working out the first elements of the course tasks," the SMD said.
The crew of the vessels taking part in the drills are carrying out exercises to prepare the ships for battle, as well as conducting damage control and air defense maneuvers.
Last week, the Caspian Flotilla's marine battalion held counter-terrorist drills involving 200 service personnel and 20 units of military equipment.
