The pilots of the aviation regiment of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Volgograd region, have practiced diving techniques using aircraft missiles.

At the training ground in the Rostov region, the crews of the front-line bombers Su-24M destroyed training ground targets with the implementation of complex types of maneuvers, including diving to an altitude of 200 m for more effective and accurate bombing with the practical use of weapons. The tasks were performed during single flights and flights in pairs.

The crews worked at altitudes from 200 to 1,000 meters at speeds up to 1,000 km / h. During the exercise, about 100 launches of S-8 unguided aircraft missiles were made.

Unguided aircraft missiles of the C-8 type are designed to destroy armored, lightly armored and unarmored military equipment. The missile also hits manpower with its fragmentation action.
