The crews of the MiG-31BM high-altitude fighter-interceptors of the fighter aviation regiment of the Central Military District, during an exercise in Siberia, prevented a reconnaissance operation of a simulated enemy and destroyed an airspace violator on target designation from an A-50 early warning radar aircraft.
As part of the exercise, the A-50 airborne radar, with the help of the Shmel radio-technical complex, detected and identified the air assets of the imaginary enemy, which were carrying out reconnaissance of the areas where military objects were deployed. Airspace violators maneuvered at low altitude at a distance of about 400 km. The crews of the MiG-31BM, which were on combat duty, received target designation to defeat single targets, performed guidance, electronic launches of guided air-to-air missiles and conditionally destroyed the “enemy” aircraft.
11 units of aviation equipment were involved in the exercise: MiG-31BM fighter-interceptors, An-26 and An-12 transport aircraft, as well as the AK A-50 AWACS aircraft, which was in the air for more than 5 hours and performed about 30 targeting of interceptor fighters. for air targets.
