MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Pilots of a separate anti-submarine squadron of a separate mixed aviation regiment of the Northern Fleet on long-range anti-submarine Tu-142 aircraft will work out air refueling from an Il-78 tanker aircraft.
The trainings will take place in the Krasnodar Territory together with representatives of the Pacific Fleet’s naval aviation. Several Tu-142 pilots from the Northern Fleet will take part in them.
The flights will be operated both in daylight and in the dark.
Refueling in the air is considered a difficult element of flight training. It allows several times to increase the flight range and the radius of combat use of aviation.
