Air targets will be simulating practically a likely enemy’s all means of air and space attack varying in altitudes, speed, jamming resources and maneuverability. The air defense force will be using the S-400 Triumf and S-300 Favorit air defense systems, Pantsyr-S anti aircraft guns, Kasta-2.2 radars and Fundament-M automation system.
