Four Su-25 attack aircraft took off from a permanent airfield and landed at the Gissar airfield near Dushanbe. During the active phase of the CSTO CRRF joint exercise “Interaction-2021”, the crews of attack aircraft will work out the search and destruction of objects of the imaginary enemy. They will provide fire support from the air to motorized rifle and tank subunits during the performance of combat training missions in mountainous desert terrain.
