"The landing operation involved the Korolyov and Alexander Shabalin amphibious landing ships, over 15 combat vehicles and around 200 Marines from a costal defense large unit of the fleet," he said.

Having embarked on the ships, the Marines and their armored personnel carriers (APC) arrived to the designated area where they hit the beach on their APCs. The supporting fires were provided by naval gunfire that took out simulated enemy aircraft and a coastal defense battery.
