In the Kuban, the crews of the Ka-52 “Alligator” and Mi-8AMTSh “Terminator” helicopters of the Southern Military District (YuVO) launched a missile and bomb attack on dynamic targets simulating an enemy armored vehicle column in motion.

The pilots, with the help of unguided aircraft missiles and bomb armament, hit the military equipment convoy and the command post of the mock enemy.

During live firing, helicopter crews hit over 20 different targets by launching 80-mm unguided aircraft missiles and fire from 30-mm aircraft guns. At the same time, more than 50 missiles and about 1000 shells for an aircraft cannon were used up.

The fulfillment of the tasks was complicated by the fact that the pilots operated at an extremely low altitude, taking into account the terrain.

In total, more than 10 crews of the army aviation of the Southern Military District took part in the combat firing.
