MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Crews of two squadrons of Su-34 fighter-bombers and Su-30SM fighters of the Southern Military District (YuVO) Aviation Regiment in the Rostov Region performed joint flights for the first time in cooperation with radio engineering units at home airfields as part of a large-scale tactical flight exercise of the 4th Air Force and Air Defense Army.
The task of the squadron of 12 Su-34 aircraft was to launch a missile and bomb attack on the positions of the mock enemy from a height of at least 600 m with P50T aircraft bombs and 122-mm unguided S-13 missiles, and the crews of the Su-30SM fighters provided fire and electronic cover.
Thanks to the well-coordinated and organized actions of the military, the targets were successfully destroyed. To assess the actions of the crews in the performance of tasks, as well as the flight conditions, the means of objective control were used.
In total, more than 20 crews of Su-34 and Su-30SM YuVO took part in joint flights, each of which made at least seven sorties.
