CHAUDA RANGE (Crimea), May 29. /TASS/. Pilots of Russia’s Chkalov State Flight Test Center will be testing the promising types of aircraft and helicopters at the unique Chauda practice range in Crimea, Russian Aerospace Force Commander-in-Chief Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev said on Sunday.
"Such a range has come up for us for the first time and it is very good that pilots of the State Flight Test Center will work here. New aircraft will be tested at the range," the commander said.
The Chauda practice range in Crimea is fitted out "with excellent telemetry facilities," he said.
The new-generation television equipment allows tracking the results of using each munition, the general said.
"During the tests of new types, all characteristics are evaluated: from the munition separation to the moment of its detonation. The results can be used to adjust the operation of the automatics of the sight and other systems," the commander said.
"Aside from naval targets, another novelty has been installed at the range: long narrow targets resembling an enemy’s oil refineries and vehicular convoys on the move," the general said.
‘We’ll install such targets at other testing ranges as well," the commander said.
