MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. Members of Russia’s famed aerobatics team, Russian Knights, have practiced hitting aerial targets with air-to-air missiles, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

"Air crews of the Russian Knights aerobatics team of Russia’s Aerospace Forces practiced live firing of air-to-air missiles, destroying aerial targets at the Ladoga training facility," the ministry said.

The launches took place in daytime and at night at altitudes of eight kilometers and more.

The crews were not informed about the location of targets beforehand, and had to search and intercept them on their own.

In total, over ten air crews took part in the exercise.
