The Pacific Fleet fighters for the first time worked off the reflection of an air attack in the Arctic


It is reported that "a group of anti-submarine aircraft IL-38H, simulating a conditional enemy bombers, acted as the enemy, whose main task was to fly to the Chukchi Sea region and imitate a bomb attack on objects of the Chukotka Autonomous Region."

To localize the threat of an air attack from an airfield in Kamchatka, a pair of high-altitude interceptor MiG-31 fighters were raised in alarm. They had to destroy the planes of the conditional enemy at a given turn before they carried out the bombing,
says release.

In carrying out this task, “Kamchatka fighter pilots for the first time carried out a nonstop flight over 4000 kilometers to the Arctic region with two refueling in the air from the Il-78 tanker aircraft,” the military department said.

In a given area, the Pacific Fleet interceptors discovered targets, classified them and conducted electronic launches of long-range air-to-air missiles at them.

"All the" enemy "planes were successfully destroyed at the maximum missile launch distance," the press service added.

In addition, the targeting of MiG-31 interceptors to the target for the first time passed under the control of radar stations and aviation guidance points of the Eastern District.

    Well done boys!
    Only in the air were a few hours ...
    More such training, and for all pilots of the regiment ...
    And they would quickly modernize their planes, otherwise they offend the sailors ...
