YEKATERINBURG, September 20. /TASS/. Two strategic missile carrying bombers Tupolev-95MS will take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization’s anti-terrorist exercise Peace Mission-2016, currently underway in Kyrgyzstan, an assistant to the commander of Russia’s Central Military District, Yaroslav Roshchupkin, has said.
"The planes will take off from the Engels airdrome in the Saratov Region, stay in the air for about nine hours and return to base after performing their mission," he said.
The crews will practice data exchange with the Central Military District’s command centers deployed in the area of the exercise in Kyrgyzstan.
This is a fourth Peace Mission exercise by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The main phase will be held on September 21. This year military contingents from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, China, Russia and Tajikistan are taking part.
Russia has delegated 500 infantrymen from the Central Military District’s mountain brigade stationed in southern Siberia. The tactical group has been reinforced by drones, commando units, radio-electronic warfare means, air defense forces, snipers, flame-throwers, communication specialists and medical personnel.
