In the airspace of the Tver region, the crews of the operational-tactical aviation of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and the air defense of the Western Military District, during the performance of combat training tasks, worked out the conduct of air battles.

According to the plan of the tactical flight exercise, the pilots of the MiG-31BM long-range supersonic high-altitude all-weather fighter-interceptors performed an independent search for a simulated air enemy using the Zaslon airborne radar station, which provides target detection at a distance of up to 320 km, and worked out techniques for exiting the close combat with elements of complex aerobatics.

Air duels took place at high and medium altitudes, at a distance of up to several tens of kilometers, with electronic launches of air-to-air missiles.

Flights of the crews of MiG-31BM fighters according to the plan of the exercise took place during 3 flight shifts.
