MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The crews of the Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft and the Su-34 fighter-bombers of the Central Military District bombed the hidden targets of the mock enemy at the air range in the Kurgan Region as part of a combat training check for the 2021 academic year.
During the flight mission, the Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft detected conditional hidden ground targets and transmitted the coordinates to a group of fighter-bombers.
The Su-34 crews carried out successive bombing strikes, using high-explosive fragmentation bombs weighing 270 kilograms at targets simulating a cluster of armored vehicles. In addition, the pilots of the Su-34 fighter-bombers used the Khibiny electronic countermeasures system, which made it possible to disable the “enemy’s” radar detection equipment and secretly enter the area of training and combat use of aerial bombs.
In total, more than 10 aircraft and about 100 military personnel of the flight and engineering personnel, as well as the control and flight support group, were involved in the control check.
