MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the course of combat training, the crews of the Su-30SM multipurpose fighters and the Su-24M front-line bombers performed air refueling from the Il-78 Russian Aerospace Forces refueling aircraft, which arrived in the Kaliningrad region from the Central region of Russia.
More than 10 aircraft of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation unit were involved in the development of this element. Refueling in the air was carried out both during the day and at night, singly and as part of a pair.
Air refueling is a necessary element of training for naval aviation pilots, which allows them to perform tasks as intended at a great distance from their home bases.
Such elements of flight training of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation crews are performed on a regular basis, at least twice a year.
