As part of the Zapad-2021 joint strategic exercise (SSU) of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, the air defense units of the Western Military District (ZVO) repulsed a massive air strike from a mock enemy. The command of the air defense units was carried out using field command posts deployed on the basis of mobile complexes of automation equipment.

After detecting and classifying air targets, processing and analyzing the information received, the combat crews of the S-400 Pantsir-S complexes received accurate target designation, captured targets and destroyed them with electronic launches of anti-aircraft missiles. In total, more than 50 targets were detected in the entire range of altitudes and speeds in a difficult jamming environment.

Having repelled the air raid of the imaginary enemy, the combat crews of the radar stations changed their combat positions.
