In the Republic of Tuva in the mountains of the Western Sayan, the crews of Mi-24P attack helicopters of the army aviation of the Central Military District (TsVO), having cleared the gorge from a mock enemy, organized an air corridor for transport aviation. Then the crews of the An-26 and Mi-8 transport and combat helicopters practiced the delivery and landing of landing groups on unprepared mountain sites.

During the tactical flight exercise, the pilots also practiced maneuvering, avoiding mountain ranges and passes at extremely low altitudes. As a result of the missile strikes, the combat units of the army aviation hit anti-aircraft installations, firing points of a mock enemy.

The tactical flight exercise, which will end next week, involves 12 units of aviation equipment: Mi-24, Mi-8 helicopters and An-26 transport aircraft, as well as more than 200 military personnel from among the flight, engineering and technical personnel, control groups and flight support.
