The combat crews of the Baltic Fleet air defense unit (BF air defense) worked out a set of training tasks to repel an air strike from a simulated enemy. As part of the exercise, combat crews made marches to designated areas, where they carried out operational deployment of S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems into battle formation in cover areas in order to detect and destroy air and ballistic targets. The air situation in the cover area was complicated by the imitation of air raids by the imaginary enemy, operating in the entire range of altitudes and speeds. The aircraft Su-27, Su-24 and Su-30SM of the naval aviation of the fleet acted as an air enemy.

In addition, in order to create a jamming situation, the actions of the BF air defense crews were complicated by the use of electronic warfare equipment. During the exercise, the simulated enemy delivered an air strike with a density of up to four targets per minute. The airplanes of the mock enemy were successfully destroyed by a salvo of S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems – the combat crews made electronic launches at air targets.

The missions to cover the positions of the missile systems were provided by the combat crews of the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile-gun systems of the air defense unit.

For reference:

The S-400 “Triumph” air defense system is designed for highly effective protection of the most important political, administrative, economic and military facilities from air strikes, strategic cruise, tactical and operational-tactical ballistic missiles, as well as medium-range ballistic missiles in combat and electronic countermeasures.

ZRPK “Pantsir C1” is intended for close cover of civil and military objects from all modern and promising air attack weapons in any weather, climatic and radio-electronic situation, day and night. Its combat capabilities provide an effective fight against any types of manned and unmanned aerial attack vehicles, including those armed with airborne high-precision weapons.
