Pilots of the Eastern Military District (VVO) air unit, stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, intercepted air targets on multipurpose Su-30SM fighters during one of the stages of tactical flight exercises (LTU).

According to the legend of the exercise, the air defense forces on duty discovered reconnaissance planes of the imaginary enemy, which were approaching the zone of responsibility at an altitude of over 6 thousand meters, not responding to requests from the dispatch services.

A pair of crews from the duty forces took off at the command “Air!” from the Domna airfield and worked out the interception of targets and their conditional destruction.

In addition, during the exercise, the pilots carried out a number of tactical techniques to counter the radio electronic means of a simulated enemy, as well as to work out the coordination of actions when striking single and group targets.

Also, aircraft crews worked out the elements of complex aerobatics to evade the air defense of a conventional enemy at various altitudes. All elements of the exercise were conducted by the pilots, both singly and as part of pairs and flights. During the exercise, the engineering and technical staff complied with the standards for pre-flight preparation of aircraft.

More than 400 servicemen are taking part in the exercise, more than 50 units of military special equipment are involved.
