In the Republic of Karelia, fighter aircraft crews of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District (ZVO), during the performance of combat training missions, practiced conducting air battles.

In the course of a tactical drawing of repelling air attacks, the crews of the Su-35S generation 4 ++ multipurpose super-maneuverable fighters worked out an independent search for a simulated air enemy with electronic launches of air-to-air missiles and photographic shooting with aircraft cannon armament.

The pilots, in addition, worked out techniques for getting out of close combat with elements of complex aerobatics. Each of the crews acted in the role of both the attacking and the defending side. Air duels took place at low and medium altitudes, at a distance of up to 500 m.
