Crews of Su-30SM multipurpose fighters of the Western Military District (ZVO) aviation formation intercepted a simulated enemy reconnaissance aircraft flying towards strategically important objects in the North-West of Russia.

The reconnaissance aircraft was timely detected and identified by ground-based radio-technical means of the air defense of the ZVO. To intercept the “intruder” in a matter of minutes from one of the airfields in the Leningrad region, a pair of Su-30SM on duty was raised.

Having occupied the indicated search area, the fighter crews found the target and practiced actions to force the airplane of a simulated enemy to land at the airfield.

The Su-30SM fighter is equipped with a modern control system, the target detection range reaches 140 km, the combat range is 1.5 thousand km. The aircraft is capable of simultaneously tracking up to 15 air targets, selecting priority targets and firing at 4 of them.
