MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. More than 10 Sukhoi Su-25SM attack fighters from an airbase in Russia’s southern Krasnodar Territory will be moved on Wednesday to alternate aerodromes within aviation drills of the Southern Military District, the district’s press service reported.
"The airbase units were preliminarily placed on high alert, and the crews of the ground services drilled flight preparation actions," the press service said.
During the exercise, the pilots will fulfil tasks flying at extremely low altitudes, drill covert actions, overcoming air defense means of an imaginary enemy and dodge attacks of fighter jets, the district sources said. In addition, the crews will drill emergency actions - in case of failure of avionics and aircraft equipment, during landing due to the failure of one of the engines.
The tactical exercise will end on June 19, the press service said.
On Tuesday, the Southern Military District launched a three-day exercise involving about 40 Sukhoi Su-25 fighters, more than 20 Su-27, Su-30 and MiG-29 fighters and 10 Mil Mi-8 military transport helicopters. "The pilots drill air combat maneuvering. In addition, at the Kopanskoi and Arzgirsky ranges in the Krasnodar and Stavropol Terrirotories, the attack aircraft crews will conduct reconnaissance flights and launch unguided missiles, drop high-explosive bombs and fire aerial cannons on targets simulating positions and a military equipment column of an imaginary enemy," the military district sources said. The maneuvers involve units stationed in the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, as well as in the Rostov Region.
