MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Mi-24 and Mi-8AMTSh-V helicopters of the Central Military District destroyed a moving column of armored vehicles of a simulated enemy during an exercise in the Novosibirsk region.
During the event, reconnaissance units discovered a column of moving armored vehicles of a simulated enemy in a wooded area. The crews of the Mi-24 and Mi-8AMTSh-V helicopters, having performed complex aerobatics to take an advantageous angle of attack, destroyed the simulated enemy at an extremely low altitude – up to 30 meters. The pilots hit targets both singly and in pairs.
In addition, during the exercise, the servicemen worked out various methods of approaching an attack against ground targets, using the target designation of aircraft controllers and maneuvers to evade enemy air defenses.
More than 6 helicopters and over 30 servicemen of a separate helicopter regiment of the Central Military District were involved in the events.
