During the tactical flight exercise, pilots of the mixed aviation unit of the Air Force and Air Defense Army of the Southern Military District stationed at the Krymsk airfield practiced air duels and aerobatics.
The crews of the Su-30M2 and Su-27SM3 multifunctional fighters honed their skills in performing elements of offensive and defensive close-range maneuverable air combat in pairs, as well as group and single aerobatics.
In addition, the pilots performed such aerobatics as “Nesterov’s Loop”, “Bell”, “Pass at low speed”, “Ear”, “Knife”, “Kadushka”, “Barrel”, “Dissolution” and others at minimum intervals , distances, various altitudes from 200 to 1500 m and speeds from 200 to 800 km / h.
The mastery of aerobatics and their use expands the combat capabilities of a fighter, and allows pilots to effectively use weapons to gain air supremacy.
