MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The crews of the Su-24M and Su-34 4A of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military District (YuVO) conducted refueling exercises in the airspace of the Volgograd region.
The refueling process was carried out at altitudes from 4.5 thousand meters to 6 thousand meters, with an aircraft speed of about 600 km / h, while the distance from the air tanker was less than 20 m.
The flight personnel of the bomber crews worked out a complex element of practical training in thick cloud conditions.
Refueling of aviation equipment in the air from an Il-78 tanker aircraft is the most difficult element of flight training, which must be systematically performed to train pilots.
The crews of the Su-24M front-line bombers and the Su-34 multifunctional supersonic fighter-bombers completed flight missions for piloting aircraft at given courses with constant altitude and speed.
In total, more than 20 flight crews were involved in the work in the air. Refueling was carried out day and night, singly and as part of a pair.
