The crews of the all-weather high-altitude fighters of the MiG-31BM interceptors of the Central Military District (CVO), during the training of the duty forces, prevented an airstrike of a “mock enemy” on key communication nodes in the Siberian air defense zone of responsibility.

As part of the training, a flight of MiG-31BM interceptors from the air defense duty forces, while patrolling the airspace, found a group of aircraft that did not respond to the requests of the “friend or foe” identification system. To prevent the air strike of the “mock enemy”, the duty crews reorganized into combat deuces, drove out and conventionally destroyed air targets, preventing the destruction of large thermal and hydroelectric power plants.

In total, during the training of the crews of the air defense on duty of the Central Military District, the pilots performed about 20 sorties, practicing independent detection, escorting, forcing to land and conditional destruction of airspace violators.
