A flight of Su-25 aircraft has been airlifted from the airfield of the Russian military base in Kyrgyzstan to the Gissar airfield in Tajikistan to participate in a trilateral exercise to be held from August 5 to 10 in the Khatlon region at the Harb-Maidon training ground.

In the course of practical actions, the Su-25 crews will perform tasks to search for camouflaged bases of a simulated enemy, deliver missile and bomb strikes at targets, and also work out techniques for getting out of attacks from portable anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy. In addition, Russian attack aircraft will provide air fire support for motorized rifle and tank units during the destruction of illegal armed groups in the mountainous desert area.

The basis of the Russian military contingent will be the units of the 201st military base, including mountain motorized rifle, tank, artillery units, as well as groups of a special separate special-purpose unit of the Central Military District. In addition, RCB protection specialists and mobile electronic warfare groups will be involved in the exercise. In total, over 1,000 servicemen and about 200 units of weapons and military equipment will be involved from Russia.
