ROSTOV-ON-DON, April 5. /TASS/. The personnel of Buk-M1-2 surface-to-air missile batteries successfully accomplished assignments in interaction with teams of Pantsyr-S1 air defense missile/gun systems to thwart a massive enemy air attack in drills on the Black Sea coast of the Krasnodar Region, the press office of Russia’s Southern Military District reported on Friday.
"In the process of accomplishing combat training missions, the anti-aircraft gunners timely spotted, locked on and destroyed over 20 air targets by electronic launches when the targets entered the systems’ long-range destruction capability boundary," the press office said.
Meanwhile, the teams of Pantsyr-S1 surface-to-air missile/gun complexes attached to Buk batteries accomplished assignments for defending military facilities against low-flying aircraft, including drones.
