Main episode of the second day of the Pomor-2012 Russian-Norwegian naval exercise was antiaircraft drill; air targets were imitated by two Northern Fleet (NF) deck-based fighters Su-33. They took off from air base Severomorsk-3 and flew to the exercise area.

During the drill, crews of NF destroyer Admiral Chabanenko and Norwegian frigate Fridtjof Nansen practiced interaction when detecting low-altitude air targets at maximal ranges and use of onboard air defense systems.

Second training subject was joint actions with onboard helicopter Ka-27 taken off from destroyer Admiral Chabanenko to search a "distressed" ship. Some anti-terror tasks were performed during that episode, in particular, boarding of search teams on violator vessels. NF rescue tug SB-406 acted both as distressed ship and a violator vessel.

According to commanding officers' appraisals, the crews demonstrated high naval skills and ability to cope with problem situations. Apart from joint actions with naval aviation, groups of officers from each part had onboard tours on foreign ships, and watched crews' actions during the exercise activities.

NF destroyer Admiral Chabanenko and Norwegian frigate Fridtjof Nansen left Severomorsk on May 11. Through two days of the exercise the ships have covered about 600 nautical miles and are following the Pomor-2012 exercise plan in the Norwegian Sea. In the nearest time Russian and Norwegian naval mariners will hold people rescue drills at sea, as well as search and destruction of a "submarine".
