In the Kaliningrad region, during a planned tactical flight exercise, the crews of the Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters of the mixed helicopter regiment of the Baltic Fleet’s naval aviation unit launched a missile attack on targets.
The pilots, using unguided rockets and 30-mm aircraft cannons, destroyed a convoy of military equipment, a group of aircraft at the airfield and the command post of a simulated enemy, using more than 50 missiles and about 1000 shells. When completing the task, they operated at an extremely low altitude using the difficult terrain.
More than 20 crews of the Mi-24 and Mi-8 attack and military transport helicopters, as well as the Ka-27 and Ka-27PS shipborne helicopters of the mixed helicopter regiment of the naval aviation unit, take part in the planned exercise.
During the exercise, the crews of these helicopters searched for submarines using lowered sonar stations. They also launched guided and unguided aircraft missiles of various classes, fired cannon armament, dropped torpedoes and bombs weighing from 100 to 500 kg, practiced maneuvering elements during air combat, as well as approach targets in conditions of the use of electronic countermeasures by a conditional enemy. …
All combat training missions are performed by naval aviation pilots both in the daytime and at night.
