At the same time, the repair crews of JSC "Remdizel" were located in Syria, which eliminated minor defects on the spot and were engaged in their routine maintenance. The consequence was that the designers were able to make improvements to the machines themselves, based on operating experience. At the same time, in Syria, K-63968 did not encounter serious breakdowns, malfunctions, or combat losses. ”
