The crews of aircraft and helicopters of the Black Sea Fleet (BSF) and the aviation formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO) took part in training with the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems divisions and crews of the Pantsir self-propelled missile and cannon systems. The training event took place within the framework of checking the readiness of the duty forces and air defense assets of the Crimean peninsula.

Crews of SU-24, Su-27, Su-30SM aircraft and Mi-8 and Ka-27 helicopters from the naval aviation units of the fleet and the district formations acted as control targets for air defense calculations and operated from various directions.

During the check, the aviation performed the task both at the maximum distance from the detection zones of radar stations, and at ultra-low altitudes using the terrain for cover, which significantly complicated the task for the air defense forces and means.

In turn, the combat crews of the S-400 Triumph and Pantsir complexes made detection and electronic launches (without actual firing) at control targets.

In total, about 20 aircraft and helicopters were involved in the check, including Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft, Su-27 and Su-30SM multipurpose fighters, Su-24M front-line bombers and Mi-8 and Ka-27 helicopters, as well as divisions of complexes S-400 “Triumph” and “Pantsir” from the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Southern Military District.
