The crews of the Ka-52 Alligators of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Southern Military District (YuVO) performed their first flight in the mountains of South Ossetia as part of a helicopter flight.

The reconnaissance and attack helicopters provided fire support to the helicopter squadron of the transport and combat Mi-8AMTSh, whose crews carried out the delivery of motorized riflemen to the rear of the mock enemy as part of a bilateral battalion tactical exercise with units of the military base of the Southern Military District in South Ossetia.

At the Dzartsem mountain range, the commanders of battalion tactical groups are mastering new elements of combat formation and methods of tactical actions.

According to the plan of the exercise, the motorized rifle went over to the offensive from the position of direct contact with the enemy.

For the first time, battalion commanders used tactical breakthrough groups and counter-sniper groups in battle formations, and also used a dispersed battle formation of artillery firing positions.

In the Southern Military District, four bilateral battalion tactical exercises are being conducted at combined-arms training grounds located in the Volgograd Region, Karachay-Cherkessia, the Chechen Republic and at a military base in the Republic of South Ossetia. About 6 thousand servicemen take part in them, about 300 pieces of weapons and equipment are involved, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, artillery pieces and multiple launch rocket systems. For the purpose of interspecific interaction, more than 40 aircraft and helicopters of army and operational-tactical aviation have been attracted from the association of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military District.
