In the Stavropol Territory, the crews of more than 20 helicopters of the army aviation regiment of the Southern Military District (SMD) flew to the operational airfield to participate in a tactical flight exercise to destroy a mock enemy with targeted bombing on a limited area.

During the flight, the pilots of the modern Mi-24 and Mi-28N attack helicopters provided escort and fire support for Mi-8AMTSh transport and assault helicopters carrying engineering and technical personnel.

In addition, the crews of the Mi-35M helicopters as part of the aviation unit worked out the elements of complex aerobatics, as well as a flight exercise – a flight along a route to a given area.

The next stage of the exercise of army aviation pilots will be combat training firing at ground targets at an aviation training ground in the Stavropol Territory.

In total, more than 400 servicemen of the Southern Military District are involved in combat training activities.
