The calculations of the Buk-M3 anti-aircraft missile systems of the combined arms army of the Western Military District repelled the attack of highly maneuverable targets in the live firing of the air defense forces at the Kapustin Yar training ground in the Astrakhan region.

During the exercise, a scenario was worked out in which the enemy discovered and attacked our key military facilities. The calculations of the Buk-M3 air defense missile system needed to deploy the complexes as quickly as possible in established positions and take targets for tracking in conditions of electronic suppression.

To complete the task for the “excellent” rating, it was necessary to hit each target missile at a distance of no closer than 30 km from key military infrastructure. At the same time, target missiles flew at speeds up to 100 km / h and imitated reconnaissance aircraft, fighters, bombers and attack helicopters of the “enemy”.

In total, about 1.2 thousand air defense specialists of the combined arms army of the Western Military District were involved in the exercise, more than 200 pieces of weapons, military and special equipment were involved.
