MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The crews of Su-34 multifunctional fighter-bombers of the aviation division of the Central Military District (TsVO) overcame air defense systems and destroyed the airfield and mock enemy aircraft during the first combat training flights in 2022.
As part of the missions, the Su-34 crews delivered about 20 bombing strikes on conditional objects of the “enemy” airfield infrastructure and performed more than 30 launches of S-13 unguided air-to-surface missiles.
When approaching the area of combat training missions, the pilots overcame the layered air defense system with the help of the Khibiny electronic complex, operating at the maximum permissible minimum height of about 50 meters. To effectively open air defense objects of a mock enemy, the crews flew in from different directions.
The exercise involved 12 units of aviation equipment: Su-34 fighter-bombers and Su-24MR reconnaissance aircraft, about 20 units of ground equipment and about 150 military personnel from the flight, engineering and technical staff, control and flight support groups.
