  Outcomes of the Baltops: the NATO ships “simply failed recognising the reflection of the air attack”

2010 07 30

Journalists of the Kaliningrad newspaper “Страж Балтики“ (‘Guard of the Baltics’ – the official publication of the Baltic Fleet) have disclosed certain specific details about the naval exercise of maritime forces, which were carried out in the Baltic Sea in June 2010, reported IA REGNUM News correspondent on 27 July.

It is noted in the article “Lessons of the Baltops” that “certain military marines participating in the exercises (referring in particular to the NATO marines – IA REGNUM News), failed in recognising the reflection of the air attack in general”. “Whether it was related with the failure of the ABM electronic devices in recognising the target, or to the flak not ready for fire” – guessed the author of the article.

Talking about similar outcomes of the task performed by the Russian sailors, the newspaper stressed that “during the performance of the training gunfire the marine and air targets were traced, accompanied and fired at the distance of the open fire”.

International exercises Baltops (Baltic Operations) in participation of maritime forces from the states-parties to the North Atlantic Treaty, also Russia, Finland and Sweden were held from the 6th to the 22nd June 2010. In total, 36 surface vessels and two submarines, including over three thousand of military officials from Russia, USA, Great Britain, Germany, France, Belgium, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia participated in this large scale event.
