With the servicemen of the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), training was conducted on air defense (AA) with the calculations of the Buk anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) to repel a simulated enemy strike from the air.

During the training, the Buk air defense missile system battalion escorted conventional air targets and destroyed them with training (electronic) launches at the moment they entered the air defense system’s engagement zone.

In addition, the crews of the anti-aircraft missile system conducted a drill to change positions and march to a new area. The servicemen of the anti-aircraft missile unit passed the standard for deploying the complex into a combat position as “excellent”.

The training of calculations took place as planned. Its main purpose is to test the readiness to repel an attack by an air enemy on military infrastructure.
