A tactical flight exercise with crews of Su-34 generation 4 ++ multifunctional fighter-bombers and Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft with air refueling started in the Chelyabinsk region at the Shagol military airfield, as part of a combat training check for the 2021 academic year …

During the exercise, the pilots of the two types of aircraft will approach the starting position and gradually approach the cone-sensor of the Il-78 tanker, either alone or in a pair with a distance of about 20 meters from each other. In addition, refueling will be carried out both during the day and at night, at an altitude of two to six thousand meters in adverse weather conditions.

The next element of the exercise will be bombing targets simulating light armored vehicles of a conventional enemy.

More than 10 aircraft and about 200 servicemen of the flight and engineering personnel of the aviation regiment of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Central Military District are involved in the three-day exercises.

Refueling in the air is considered one of the most difficult elements of flight training. It is necessary to increase the range of combat use of aviation without making additional landings at airfields.
