The military drills involved the aviation and Bal-E coastal defense systems of the Black Sea Fleet. As a part of the drills, the joint forces discovered and destroyed a mock enemy surface ship with a group of saboteurs on board.

The Bal coastal defense system is armed with 8 containers with Kh-35 anti-ship cruise missiles. They are capable to striking targets within the range of 130/260 km (depending on the modification) and defeat ships with the displacement of up to 5,000 t.
