MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) — The operative and strategic air and space defense command will hold a tactical exercise with live firing practice at the Ashuluk missile test range, the Astrakhan Region, on September 5-12, Russian Air Force spokesman Colonel Vladimir Drik told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“Taking part in the exercise with live firing practice will be the command of the 5th air and space defense brigade, two S-300 and S-400 air defense regiments, and a radar regiment,” he said.
According to the exercise scenario, radar units will monitor the air situation and identify and track targets. The SAM units will destroy high and low altitude targets amid electronic jamming.
Sukhoi-27 jet fighters will intercept, track and destroy targets and also practice rocket strikes against surface targets. Frontline bombers Sukhoi-24 will fly air reconnaissance and bombing raids, Drik said.
The air and space defense forces will take part in the active phase of the exercise of the CIS joint air defense system in Ashuluk on September 12.
