The Su-24 bombers, Su-27 fighters, Su-30SM multirole fighter jets and also Mi-8, Mi-24 and Ka-27 helicopters simulated the notional enemy in the drills, the statement reads.
The combat teams conducted over 30 simulated launches against the notional enemy’s real air targets whose role was performed by the Fleet’s naval aviation.
During the drills, the radar units of the Baltic Fleet’s air defense troops armed with the latest radar stations and automatic control systems were fulfilling procedures within the required time limits to deploy their systems, detect air targets and transmit data to the command posts of air defense units.
The drills involved about 20 items of military and special hardware, and also over 10 aircraft and helicopters of the Baltic Fleet’s naval aviation.
