Long-range aviation crews performed training flights in the Murmansk region.

Under the guidance of an experienced instructor staff, young pilots and navigators worked out takeoffs and landings, en-route flight in a given area, interaction with the flight control group, as well as tactical bombing at the objects of a simulated enemy.

“This was the first time such an exercise was performed in the air, before that tactical bombing was practiced only on a simulator,” said Lieutenant Oleg Bortnik, assistant commander of the ship on the Tu-22M3 aircraft.

In total, five Tu-22M3 aircraft and more than 10 units of automotive and special equipment were involved in the combat training event.
