    We are constantly flying over our heads. They don’t sleep))) I remember when I was a schoolboy and visited an airfield. I sat in the cockpit and was shocked by the size of the Miga. Nearby were no longer flying 25. But they didn’t make such an impression

      Yes, with the district of residence you are not lucky. I can hear the passengers in the distance going to land. And the military airfield near by is certainly loud.

    It is good that intercepts of missile systems, which are now the most relevant, are being constantly worked out now. I would also like details on how they were worked out and which missiles of the conditional enemy.

    Well, if the goal setting was done by Su 24, then this is PM6, and they were shot thermal using TP.

    I’m honestly glad about them, but I sincerely don’t understand: why is the nooral course of combat training so highlighted. This is the norm, not something unusual.
