MOSCOW, June 7. /TASS/. More than 50 planes and helicopters are participating in a three-day exercise that began in Crimea and the Rostov Region earlier on Tuesday, the press-service of the Southern Military District said.

"Taking part in the exercise are more than 50 aircraft, including Mi-28N, Ka-52 and Mi-35M helicopter gunships, Antonov-12 and Antonov-26 transport planes and the newest two-seat fighters Sukhoi-30SM fighters and upgraded Sukhoi-27 fighters and 2,500 air pilots, flight engineers and ground personnel," the press-service said.

Tactical aviation pilots will practise interception of air targets and electronically simulated missile launches.

At the Opuk proving ground helicopter crews will be destroying hypothetical targets with missile and gun fire at distances ranging 500 meters to 5,000 meters in day and night time.

"Radio-technical units will be searching for, identifying and tracking hypothetical enemy targets in different situations. The emphasis is on the identification and classification of air targets at low and extra-low altitudes," the Southern Military District said.
