MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Tver Region, fighter aircraft crews of the Leningrad Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Western Military District (ZVO) during training flights practiced conducting air battles. The crews of the MiG-31BM long-range high-altitude fighter-interceptors carried out an independent search for a simulated air enemy and carried out electronic launches of air-to-air missiles.
The pilots also worked out techniques for getting out of the close combat zone with elements of complex aerobatics. During the “air duel” each of the crews acted in the role of both the attacking and the defending side. Training flights took place at high altitudes at distances of up to several tens of kilometers.
