Read Time42 Second


Within the unannounced combat readiness inspection of the air defence and naval aviation formations of the Baltic Fleet in the Kaliningrad Region, crews of air defence missile complexes and Su-27 fighters practiced repelling of simulated enemy.

Imaginary enemy was represented by tactical Su-24 bombers, An-26 military transport aircraft, Mi-24 and Ka-27 helicopters of the Baltic Fleet.

According to the scenario of the exercise, the enemy was making a strike with the density of 4 targets per minute. Su-27 were taken into the air to engage the aims.

The crews successfully hit all the targets. The simulated enemy aircraft were detected and conventionally destroyed with “air-to-air” and “surface-to-air” missiles. The pilots worked under the conditions of heavy jamming environment.
