MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Planned tactical flight exercises involving military aviation units of the air force and air defense formation stationed in the south of Russia have started in the country’s Southern Military District, the district’s press service reported on Tuesday.

"All in all, the exercise involves about 40 various aircraft, including the Sukhoi Su-24MR (NATO reporting name: Fencer-E) reconnaissance planes, Su-34 (Fullback) frontline bombers and Su-27 (Flanker) fighters," the report says.
