The unique Russian A-222 Bereg-E mobile coastal artillery systems carried out firing against targets, which imitated ships of the conditional enemy.

Earlier, the crews had arrived at the range near the Cape Zheleznyy Rog on the Taman Peninsula in order to practice deploying the complexes.

The A-222 Bereg is a Russian 130 mm self-propelled coastal artillery gun, which was developed in the 1980s and first shown to the public in 1993 at an arms fair in Abu Dhabi. The system can effectively engage sea and ground targets moving at high speeds. Bereg-E is comprised of a central post with a fire control system, six self-propelled guns, and one or two combat duty support vehicles.

The A-222 Bereg  mobile coastal artillery system used AK-130 automatic naval cannon with a caliber of 130 mm. The AK-130 gun is mounted on a wheeled MAZ-543 8×8 vehicle and was designed to engage surface ships and fast attack boats as well as ground targets. It is capable of engaging targets within 1–2 minutes and can fire up to 12 shots per minute.

As of 2003, the only operator of the system was the Russian unit 40th BRAP at a naval base in Novorossiysk at the Black Sea.
