During a battalion tactical exercise in North Ossetia at the Tarskoye training ground, air defense units of the 58th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District (YuVO) repulsed an air attack by a mock enemy on military targets.

Combat crews of anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) “Tor-M2” in cooperation with reconnaissance units performed a number of tasks to search, detect and destroy air targets with the implementation of electronic launches. Anti-aircraft gunners tracked up to 4 targets simultaneously and observed the results of their destruction in real time.

In total, the military personnel of the air defense units destroyed more than 30 drones, airplanes and helicopters of the imaginary enemy. Modeling of targets and calculation of a missile hit was carried out using specially developed software for the Tor-M2 air defense missile system simulator.

About 1.5 thousand servicemen of a motorized rifle division took part in the exercise, about 200 units of weapons and military equipment were involved.

In the Southern Military District, one regimental and four bilateral battalion tactical exercises are held at combined-arms training grounds located in the Stavropol Territory, in the Rostov Region, the Chechen Republic, the Volgograd Region and the Crimea.
