VOLGOGRAD, May 28. /TASS/. About 45 helicopter gunships and attack planes have coped with the mission of eliminating a hypothetical enemy’s air defense at the Ashuluk and Kapustin Yar proving grounds, the press office of the Southern Military District has said.
"The pilots hit all surface targets planted in unfamiliar terrain," the spokesman said.
By now the aircraft have landed at the Marinovka airdrome near Volgograd, where they had been relocated from Primorsko-Akhtarsk, Korenovsk and Monchegorsk. The relocated aircraft included frontline bombers Sukhoi-24M, reconnaissance Sukhoi-24MR planes, fighter-bombers Sukhoi-25SM, MiG-31 interceptors and Mi-8 helicopters.
The combat readiness check of the air force and air defense units of the Central Military District began on May 25. Some units from the Western and Southern military districts, long-range aircraft and military transport planes were involved in the exercise in which a total of 12,000 troops, 250 aircraft and about 700 pieces of military equipment are participating.
