Crews of Su-27 fighters and Su-24 front-line bombers of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation conducted night training flights.
The pilots practiced takeoff and landing, training attacks on low-speed air and ground targets, destruction of command posts and military equipment of a simulated enemy, and also performed complex aerobatics and combat maneuvering.
During the flights, the crews worked out the most complex exercises of the combat training course in the sky, where special attention was paid to night piloting techniques with the use of offensive and defensive maneuvers at various altitudes and speeds and the conditional use of aircraft weapons.
The main goal of training flights is to check the readiness of personnel to perform combat and special missions as intended, as well as to practice new tactics with full use of the combat capabilities of aviation technology and its equipment.
In total, about 20 naval aviation aircraft of the Baltic Fleet were involved in the planned combat training event.
