MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Pilots of the Mi-24 attack helicopters of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation, as part of training flights, carried out rocket and artillery firing at sea ranges in the Baltic Sea.
During the training activities, the helicopter crews practiced striking unguided aircraft missiles and aerial bombs at sea targets imitating the ships of a conventional enemy. In addition, the helicopter pilots fired from the Mi-24 cannon armament at targets simulating high-speed small-sized sea targets.
During sorties for combat use, the helicopter pilots performed strikes both singly and in pairs.
Practical firing helped to increase the level of training of military pilots when performing tasks for their intended purpose, practicing and improving tactics and methods of using naval aviation.
