In St. Petersburg, Leningrad, Tver, Nizhny Novgorod, Pskov, Voronezh regions and the Republic of Karelia, joint combat training was held in aviation, anti-aircraft missile and radio engineering units of the Leningrad Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Western Military District.

According to the plan of the training, the combat crews of the radar stations and anti-aircraft missile systems of the air defense units were supposed to deter the attempts of fighter aircraft to get into the given airspace and deliver missile and bomb strikes against the most significant ground targets. The air groups consisting of operational-tactical and army aviation of the formation, Su-35M, MiG-31BM aircraft, and Mi-8mtv-5 helicopters acted as a mock enemy.

The main task of the subunits of the radio engineering forces was the early detection of air targets approaching from different directions and at different altitudes, as well as the transmission of the coordinates of the trajectory of aircraft movement for anti-aircraft missile battalions.

Each of the fighters worked out the elements of evading air defense objects, maneuvering and flying at extremely low altitudes. At the same time, the calculations of anti-aircraft missile systems have worked out the destruction of air targets using electronic launches of anti-aircraft guided missiles.

More than 500 military personnel, over 200 units of air defense and aviation equipment of the formation were involved in the joint training event.
