The S-300ПМ-2 “Favorite” anti-aircraft missile system deployed near Voronezh was checked with the help of Su-34 front-line bombers. This was reported by the press service of the Western Military District.
Crews of Su-34 bombers tested the mobile control system of the deeply modernized S-300ПМ-2 Favorite air defense system, interfering with jamming the operation of radio systems and communications. In turn, the calculations of anti-aircraft systems were trained in targeting and tracking targets in conditions of radio interference. In addition, the settings of the air defense system and the operation of the friend-or-foe identification system were checked. Tests recognized successful.
In the conditions of electronic countermeasures, Favorit successfully completed the tasks and confirmed the claimed characteristics.
